TOVEX IS SAFER:
TOVEX water gel contains no nitroglycerin.
Dynamite is made with nitroglycine. This is big safety difference.Since
its introduction more than 4 billion ponds of TOVEX have
been shipped, handled and used without an accidental detonation
attributable to TOVEX.
TOVEX is reliably sensitive to conventional
priming method yet much more resistant than dynamite to
accidental intimation from impact, shock or fire.Every standard
industries test proves it. Because TOVEX is so outstanding
in safety and performance. Dupont stopped making dynamite
TOVEX SAFETY MEANS GREATER PRODUCTIVITY:
With the switch to TOVEX, users have improved
morale and increased productivity on each shift as nitroglycerin
TOVEX INCREASED PRE-BLAST SAFETY:
TOVEX resists accidental detonation from impact
friction and fire far better than dynamite .So hazards posed
in shipping .handling and storage are greatly reduced.
TOVEX is a class 3 division I explosive with
good balance of energy, density, velocity, sensitivity and
water resistance. Tovex comes in diameters down to 7/8”
for a full range of explosives operations. its tampable
can be loaded into rough, ragged holes, and offers excellent
TOVEX MINIMIZES PROPAGATION:
Since dynamite is much more sensitive than
TOVEX, propagation between holes can occur, disrupting delay
sequences causing more vibration and fly rock. TOVEX is
formulated to minimize hole –to-hole propagation making
it ideal to use when tough shooting condition exist.
TOVEX ELIMINATES NITRO HEADACHES:
Unlike dynamite, TOVEX water gel explosive
contain no nitroglycerin so there’s no way you can
get nitro headache from either handling TOVEX or breathing
fumes after blasting. A miner once described a nitroglycerin
headache as “five time worse than worst headache as
“five time worse than headache I ever had. Worker
with nitro headaches just can’t be productive.
TOVEX REDUCE SOME AND FUMES:
Smoke and fumes after a blast contain Tovex
carbon monoxide of nitrogen. The amount of TOVEX fumes and
smoke generates with less TOVEX then with dynamite .operators
find with TOVEX Productivity increased, since the men can
return to work more quickly and safely than with dynamite.
TOVEX CAN SAVE MONEY:
In all type of explosive operation TOVEX is
providing .it can save money by reduce drilling and blasting
costs. Shortening work cycles and improving productivity
More efficient hole spacing reduced the cost
of blasting in quarries .In coal mines the loader can work
all the way to the back of the cut when shot with TOVEX,but
not when shot with dynamite .in Tunnel operation ,with tovex
virtually no fumes allowing for almost immediate mucking
operation with no significant delay in the work cycle.
The precision drilling and smooth blasting
that are possible with Tovex reduced the overhead .eliminated
unwanted slides helps time saving and planning without interrupting
traffic. Tovex is less dense than dynamites; you can Shoot
More Sticks per pounds of explosive.
