DAYAGEL SEISMIC is a new product development of seismic explosives designed to improve the performance of the former generation of POWERGEL SEISMIC 3000 and DAYAGEL SEISMIC.Based on experiences of that POWERGEL and DAYAGEL SEISMIC there are some weaknesses recorded as follows:
The screw coupling as a connector system designed on POWERGEL SEISMIC 3000 is short and use small thread so that the connection is weak.
Two detonator well applied on DAYAGEL SEISMIC is to ensure efficiency of detonation initiation, however this causes some problems during production with the result the explosives filling process becoming not perfect.
Because the design limitations on DAYAGEL SEISMIC cartridge, the unnecessary air gap found between cartridges assembled in one series, so that the transmission of the explosives detonation becomes not perfect.
In order to improve the performance of seismic explosives, we introduce the new high performance DAYAGEL SEISMIC. As seismic explosive, beside the quality of the stuffing, the performance of DAYAGEL SEISMIC is determined by its cartridge design characteristics :
Connection between cartridges is big trapezium thread, so that the connection between cartridges assembled in one series becomes perfect.
Only one detonator well is applied in the New DAYAGEL cartridge design to make explosives filling process easy and stuffing guaranteed in full. If it is required to install more than one detonator, the additional detonator can be attachedat other cartridge assembled in one series.
The housing of detonator is designed in such manner, so the unnecessary air gap between cartridges can be minimized.
The cup is strengthened in order to assure perfect closing.
In seismic exploration, the aim is to collect good quality high resolution seismic data for interpretation to provide accurate mapping of structures and identification of stratigraphic features - the first time round!
DAYAGEL SEISMIC is the new generation of seismic explosive. Its advanced water - in - oil structure has been improved to deliver greater velocity of detonation (VOD), greater sensitivity and a longer shelf life.
In addition, DAYAGEL SEISMIC retains all the outstanding features of the previously familiar POWERGEL SEISMIC 3000 product.
Flexibility of Charge Size
DAYAGEL SEISMIC is available in 500 g or 250 g cartridges. The rigid plastic cartridges with positive screw coupling give great flexibility of charge size at the shot hole.
Long Sleeping Times
DAYAGEL SEISMIC has a sleeping time up to 8 weeks in wet shot holes. It can be fired successfully in dry holes several months after being loaded.
Excellent Water Resistance
DAYAGEL SEISMIC has excellent water resistance even in dynamic water situations. The explosive will provide a reliable energy source even in water filled shot holes up to 90 meters deep.
Safety Through Technology
Being a water-in-oil emulsion DAYAGEL SEISMIC is composed of non-explosive ingredients. It has very low sensitivity to mechanical impact yet remains sensitivity to a No. 8 Electric Detonator.
If exposed to fire, DAYAGEL SEISMIC will self extinguish when the source of heat is removed.
