Tuesday 3rd of January 2017 11:29:03 AM



BlastBoss, an Australian blasting technology company have launched their new structural water-sealing barrier called Dryshot to significantly improve blasting performance.

CEO David Handel said that Dryshot was developed to greatly reduce cost per blast to operators whilst maximising production through increased operational, processing and transportation efficiency.

"I continuously saw the ongoing blasting challenges faced by the mining, quarrying and civil engineering industries throughout my 30-plus years as a director of a leading global fine particle management company," Handel said.

"Traditional blasting methods can cause increased costs in production, processing and transportation, and adverse environmental effects - including exposure to dangerous fumes and excessive dust, noise and vibration.

Dryshot is a blended powder product used a multipurpose barrier to instantly seal off explosives from problematic water and mud in standard blast holes, and stop stemming dilution into explosives in large diameter holes.
