Quarrying

Best Particle Size. Minimizing Processing Costs.

Each quarry is different, each bench in the quarry is different and every day, the conditions in the quarry are different. Getting the right sized rock, minimizing oversize and fines is the goal no matter the changing conditions. Austin Powder knows that the most effective place to break rock is at the face.

Our top priorities are to work safe and to blast safe.

At Austin Powder we begin with helping our customers choose the right product for the specific application. Products such as Austin Powder E-Star and Shock-Star Detonators, are critical – not only to achieve maximum environmental control but also for the best fragmentation results possible. Used with Austin Powder Emulex Series gassed emulsions, this level of control results in significant cost savings.

In an internationally competitive environment, having a reliable partner is particularly important.
