How does it work?

About Us

What can we do?

With the advantages over traditional blasting, we have a variety of specialized applications:

Small boulders to enormous ones
Small concrete demolition to entire bridges
Armour stone splitting
Dimensional quarrying
Sensitive excavation
Underwater rock breaking
Unblocking crushers and haulage chutes

Your safety is our top priority!

Environmentally friendly with no significant hazard in its packaged state makes Rock Poppers Mini Blast the best option for sensitive blasting areas. We only require localized clearance of the area as opposed to complete site evacuation. This means we can drill, stem and blast and have the site back to work in no time.

Virtually no over blast

The unique blast does not create overpressure or shockwaves making it safe for animals and structures with glass

Minimal Noise

Since the charges are smaller, more efficient and drilled deep into the rock the accompanying sound is dampened to that of a starting pistol!

No noxious gases

There are no dangerous fumes released from detonation, but it could still be dusty!

Minimal vibrations

The slower deflagration process minimizes vibration in surrounding rock keeping nearby structures and sensitive areas safe

Minimizes fly rock to less than 30ft

Our process gives us more control over the blast and with a slower deflagration, fly rock can be controlled to less than 30 feet!

Here’s how it works:

Step 1

Drill hole
Specific pattern, location and bore for each situation

Step 2

Insert Cartridge
Specified load for burden.

Step 3

Pack the hole with aggregate.

Step 4

Clear the area!

Step 5

Deploy Blast
Fire in the hole!
