Dyno Nobel updates explosives engineers mobile app

By |  June 28, 2017

Dyno Nobel released an updated version of its free Explosives Engineers’ mobile app for Android and Apple users.

The updated app features product specifications and application uses for Dyno Nobel products, as well as custom blasting calculators that include powder factor, airblast prediction, scaled distance and distance to the nearest structure. The app shares real-time Dyno Nobel updates through its news section, which highlights press releases, videos and news stories. The company also added unit conversions, blast design terminology, definitions and formulas on its updated app, Dyno Nobel says.

The updated version provides a simpler look and feel compared with the company’s older app, and it also has the ability to adapt refinements and changes to the underlying operating systems, according to the company. It includes the ability for users to select a region (America, Asia Pacific or South America) and preferred units (imperial or metric). In addition, Dyno Nobel updated the app’s GPS function, which not only includes maps with latitude, longitude and altitude, but can also save hundreds of locations and compare them. Additionally, the calculator function now saves results to a list and allows users to upload past results from that list.

Dyno Nobel, a subsidiary of Incitec Pivot Limited, manufactures a full line of commercial explosives, including ammonium nitrate, bulk explosives, packaged emulsions, dynamite, detonators, cast boosters and detonating cord, as well as surface and underground loading systems and portable modular emulsion plants.
