Product detail descriptionHigh-density Ammonium Nitrate (HDAN) is used for emulsion and It can be used in underground, and also in an open-pit mine. Ammonium Nitrate is the most widely used component because it is an excellent oxidizer. It generates 60% oxygen by weight therefore it is used as an oxygen supplier.

Ammonium nitrate Recommended Use: General chemical; explosives manufacture.

Ammonium Nitrate is the most widely used component because it is an excellent oxidIzer. It generates 60% oxygen by weight therefore it is used as an oxygen supplier. Due to this property and its low price it is most commonly used in making explosives base. Ammonium Nitrate is also used in many non-ANFO explosives.

Ammonium Nitrate is highly soluble in water. 1n 100ml water its solubility a 0,20,40,20,80 and 100de is 118,150,297,410,576 and 1024g respectively.

Initiator in industrial explosives: Ammonium Nitrate is a weak emulsion explosive base. Its explosion temperature is 1130℃.

It forms the explosive base in ANFO- (Ammonium Nitrate Fuel Oil)

Properties & Specifications of Explosive Grade AN Prills.

– Non-Caking consistency

– Low moisture content

– Free- flow sizing

– Oil absorbency

– Low particle density

– Good friability &

– Low clay content

– For good blasting, our prills size distribution is between 6-20 mesh

– Prills are porous which enables it to readily absorb and hold the correct amount of fuel oil (about 5.7%). Such high porosity of explosive grade Ammonium Nitrate prills is needed because they can absorb the fuel oil when mixed and form uniform ANFO.

– Oil is then distributed throughout the prill particle improving the detonability of the ANFO mixture.

Product applicationSynonyms:           Glacial acetic acid; Acetic acid solution; acetic acid 50%;  acetic acid, of a concentration of more than 10 per cent, by weight, of acetic acid; Acetic Acid Glacial BP; Natural Acetic Acid; Acetic acid (36%); Acetic acid, food grade; Acetic Acid Glacial; GAA; Acetic Acid, Glacial

It is a colourless liquid that when undiluted is also called glacial acetic acid. It has a distinctive sour taste and pungent smell.

Acetic acid uses:  Additive in industrial explosives in Mining.

Other uses include use of acetic acid in the production of vinyl acetate monomer,  acetic anhydride and ester production.


Chemical gassing agents -In the case of emulsion explosives, using Acetic acid can accelerate the gassing process. The chemically gassed emulsions may take 40 – 50 minutes for completion of gassing within the blast holes, particularly when the emulsion is colder.

In cases where acetic acid is used, it is added to the emulsion prior to gassing, the desired amount of acid is mixed in the emulsion, before adding the gasser.

A gassing solution comprising sodium nitrite in water together with the selected enol compound and acetic acid is introduced into the emulsion explosive at the blast hole by entraining the gassing solution into a stream of the emulsion explosive using pumps.

The solution pH is an important parameter in the gassing of emulsion explosives due to the high cost associated with acid addition therefore a pH value should preferably be maintained at 4.1 or below.
