Synonyms: Calcium dinitrate tetrahydrate; Nitric acid, calcium salt, tetrahydrate.
Recommended Use: Initiator in industrial explosives
Calcium nitrate is a component used in emulsion explosives. Because it is easy to dissolve and it has a high mixing ability, calcium nitrate technical grade is a very good option for your emulsion process. It is a different grade than the Calcium Nitrate used for fertilizer use.
Improves Sensitivity and stability of the compositions of explosive emulsion.
If CN is the principal oxidizer, the emulsion blasting agents are less sensitive . This effect of CN is dramatic and of important commericial significance.
- If CN:AN ratio is increased, and the other parameters and ingredients essentially are held constant, the blasting agent will tend to remain non cap-sensitive even as the critical diameter correspondingly is decreased to relatively small diameters.
Improve the stability of emulsion explosives with calcium nitrate;
- improve the quality parameters of the emulsion for civil explosives.
- extend the shelf life of the emulsion.
- improve the stability of emulsion explosives
