The EZshot EZDet (EZD) series is Dyno Nobel’s newest electronic initiation system for surface blasting. The series is coming soon, according to Dyno Nobel.

These new units consist of a green shock tube with a surface detonator attached to one end and a high-strength (#12) in-hole electronic detonator on the other. The surface detonator is set inside of a color-coded plastic EZ Connector block to facilitate easy connections to shock tube leads. It can hold up to six shock tube leads.

Easy-to-read, color-coded delay tags display the delay number and nominal firing time prominently to ensure ease of use, the company says.

According to Dyno Nobel, units can be easily connected to one another to satisfy basic blast design requirements in quarry, mining and construction operations. They can also be used in combination with Nonel MS, Nonel Eztl and Nonel TD detonators for complex blast design requirements. They minimize inventory of initiation system components, Dyno Nobel adds.

Dyno Nobel is a subsidiary of Incitec Pivot, with customers in the mining, quarry, construction, pipeline and geophysical exploration industries. The company operates in Australia, Canada, the United States, Africa, Indonesia, Mexico, South America, Papua New Guinea and Turkey.

Dyno Nobel manufactures a line of commercial explosives, including ammonium nitrate, bulk explosives, packaged emulsions, dynamite, detonators (electric, nonelectric and electronic), cast boosters, and detonating cord, as well as surface and underground loading systems and portable modular emulsion plants. The company also offers services such as blast design, shot loading, shot service, vibration control, airblast, flyrock and NOx reduction, through DynoConsult, a specialist consulting division of Dyno Nobel.
