Non-electric detonators

EPC Canada supplies DAVEYNEL® and DAVEYQUICK® non-electric initiating systems.

The DAVEYNEL® is a detonator initiated by a shock wave tube. It is completed with a surface connector for priming the firing circuit. This system can be used in open and underground works. The range of detonator delays extends from 75 ms to 2 seconds. The range of delays for the fittings is from 0 to 100 ms.

The DAVEYQUICK® is a 500 ms detonator with an integrated 25 ms connector. The lengths of the detonators range from 4 m to 37 m.

Electronic detonators

A new electronic firing system, the DAVEYTRONIC® offers precision, simplicity and flexibility at the right cost and is particularly suitable for quarries, construction sites and mines.

Before firing, a complete check of the priming system is carried out by the firing console.

This system makes it possible to perfectly adapt the sequence to the shots to be carried out to minimize nuisance and optimize the result of the shot.
