METHODICAL BLAST PATTERN EXPANSION BREAKS PRODUCTION RECORDS AND REDUCES COSTS BY 17.8%
A customer faced blasted inventory shortages that were driven by demand for a highstripping ratio. After analyzing historic fragmentation data, the Austin Technical Services experts determined the burden and spacing could be increased from previous standards. Working as partners in the process, the decision was made to gradually increase burden and spacing while maintaining current charge rules.
The Austin Technical Services experts used Paradigm modeling and suggested faster timing scenarios to maximize fragmentation results and timing directions to reduce air overpressure deviations with the neighbors. The mine methodically implemented the change (over the course of eighteen months) to find maximum burden and spacing; matched with ideal powder factor, to set a new blasting standard.
