SPEX•LITE® 5510 Solid Air is compatible with Diesel Fuel, opening up possibilities and cost reduction opportunities as a lightweight fill for explosives.
SPEX•LITE® Solid Air is up to 95% air content, which provides many unique advantages as a lightweight additive in emulsion systems.
As an ultra efficient lightweight volume filler, SPEX•LITE® Solid Air's volume cost saves explosives customers material and freight costs in almost every instance.
With a bulk density of ~0.9 pounds per cubic foot (pcf), SPEX•LITE® 5510 Solid Air will significantly decrease the weight of industrial explosive systems.
SPEX•LITE® Solid Air may reduce the amount of liquid potentially absorbed in an emulsion system, which can lead to improved blast results.
SPEX•LITE® Solid Air has a rounded shape, which promotes flow of an emulsion system when it's being pumped.
While EPS generally costs less than EPP, the EPP is well worth the nominal extra cost where exposure to diesel is possible or required, such as diesel emulsion systems for explosives and maritime, nautical and offshore applications.
Here we compare EPS vs EPP and test their chemical resistance to diesel. Check it out!
Case studies using SpexLite Solid Air demonstrate that less holes are required per blast, saving both time and money as a lightweight fill for explosives companies.
SpexLite can be conveniently stored regardless of weather conditions and SpexLite can be handled either pneumatically or mechanically.
Traditional ANFO prills are hazardous both to ship and to handle. SpexLite Solid Air does not require hazardous shipping and handling surcharges.
Conventional Prills provide warnings of potential build-up on shipping and storage containers. SpexLite Lightweight Fill doesn't contribute to traditional residue buildup.
Conventional ANFO prills weigh ~45 - 55 pcf. SpexLite Solid Air weighs between ~0.9 - 15 pcf and it doesn't tend to break down during transit.
Spex•Lite® Solid Air is up to 95% air content and is easy to ship, store, handle and use. Not only is it easy to handle, it provides tremendous advantages for explosives companies when mixed in with a conventional ANFO emulsion system.
