Fractum Breaking Technology Rocks, Steel Waste and

Rock, concrete and steel breaking with lowered vibration. Since very large rocks are broken more effectively into smaller pieces, secondary blasting is obviated and there is less need for secondary crushing of the material. Improving the secondary breaking process of oversized boulders.

Caliche Also known as calcrete, hardpan, and duricrust

"Caliche Terraces" Caliche-cemented gravels form the flat, resistant, horizontal "cap rocks" on the Pleistocene terraces on the banks of the modern dry wash that crosses the area shown in this photo. The mountains in the distance are composed mainly of Paleozoic limestones and dolomites. Weathering of these rocks provided much of the calcium carbonate that enabled caliche formation in the valley.

Application of Air Decks in Production Blasting to Improve

In blasting with air decks, repeated oscillation of shock waves within the air gap increases the time over which it acts on the surrounding rock mass by a factor at between 2 and 5. The ultimate effect lies in increasing the crack network in the surrounding rock and reducing the burden movement.
