Trojan™ cast boosters deliver the driving force required for generating maximum initiating energy and blasting efficiency. They provide reliability, safety and durability for all underground mining, opencast mining and quarry applications by combining high detonation velocity (7500m/s) with high density (1.6g/cm3).Trojan™ cast boosters optimise detonation pressure (225kBar*) and consistently outperform any other type of commercial boosters.
The 15g Stinger is white in colour and is used in small diameter holes (45mm or less) as found in underground mining applications. It is designed to easily slip onto the end of a Primadet or any other standard detonator shell.
The 150g booster is yellow in color and is designed for ;use in small blast holes up to 150mm in diameter, typically found in quarry and coal operations. the size and shape of the 150g booster ensures that any Primadet detonator of equivalent used with the product is fully encapsulated. Detonating cordcan also be facilitated as an initiator.
The y-3 booster is green in color and is conical to provide an effective and cost efficient means of initiation in large diameter holes exceeding 150mm in diameter, typically found in opencast mining operations. The y-3 booster is designed to allow the detonation front to fully develop and flatten before reaching the top surface of the booster, thus increasing the impact of the booster at this contact surface.
The c-400 booster is red in color and conical to provide an effective and cost efficient means of initiation in large diameter holes exceeding 150mm in diameter. The conical shape ensures the best booster diameter to blast hole diameter configuration for the size of the booster.
The c-800 booster is orange in color and is designed to be used in the deeper blast holes (25m and more) to maximize the booster diameter hole, diameter ratio and increase the subsequent “bore-hole reassure”. As with the c-400 and the y-3, once in the blast hole, the inverted cone design maximizes the surface contact area between the booster and explosive column above it.
