Quarrying techniques using Royex
In quarrying, rock fragmentation is very important since the rock sizes produced by a blast must be match the post process machinery such as hauling trucks and rock crushers. Normally, tight space blasting patterns are used to obtain good fragmentation. with the use of explosives this results in excessive chargin and an increase in a number of risks such as fly rock, rock vibration, noise and other issues associated with high explosives.
As a quarry blasting technique the Royex rock breaking system can be used both as a primary and secondary blast or rock breaking alternative. Since the system is very precise and causes minimal rock vibrations and fly rocks , drilling and blasting operations can be done simultaneously. This also means that efficient quarrying is possible close to other structures and in cities. Royex can also be used for secondary blasting of rocks too big to be managed by the haulers or crushers.
Royex can be used in a multitude of quarrying applications such as limestone, granite or marble quarries as it is perfectly possible to control breaking of slabs (such as marble).
