• More control of the blast.Benefits of the Saver Plug
  • Saver Plug is kept above mud, and keeping booster in product preventing blow outs due to booster laying in mud.
  • Less vibrations are produced.
  • Lower noise levels.
  • Less fly rock and rifling.
  • Increased high wall stability.
  • Better fragmentation.
  • Assists in preventing dilution of mineral and waste.
  • Downstream savings :
    - With better fragmentation there is reduced wear on load and haul equipment.
    - Loading of material is faster.
    - Smaller fragmentation reduces wear in mill, faster processing times and increases through put, benefiting production.

 

  • Drilling Process
    - Less Sub-drill needed.
    - Less re-drills.
    - Less explosives required.
    - Improved pit floor conditions and less toes.
    - Increases blasting frequencies.
    - Blasting plug can be used for demarcation.
    - Blasting plug can be used to plug top of already drilled holes to prevent chippings from falling back into hole during drilling process.
