AP Special Ordinary detonators (APSOD)


Description

APSODs are used in conjunction with safety fuses. The spit of fire from the safety fuse initiates the ASA charge which then detonates the PETN charge. This in turn will initiate the ANFO or cartridge explosives.

 

Application

APSODs in conjunction with safety fuses are based on non-electric initiation by nature and are used widely as a safe alternative in dry as well as moist locations and in non-gassy underground mines. They are used in open cast blasting applications/non-gassy mining, road construction, surface excavation, stone and metal quarrying.
