JOHNEX launch surface bulk emulsion - EZIPUMP®-ANE (Class 5.1)


Over the last 3 years JOHNEX explosives have been progressively researching the best emulsion formulation for the harsh Australian mining environment. In the last 3 months we have had several successful blasts using the same formulation of EZIPUMP®-ANE and our own, home engineered, emulsion delivery unit. At the end of May 2012 we were awarded the authority to blast in NSW and Queensland and already have orders for 3 more trucks.

David Blythe-Wood, JOHNEX explosives’ Managing Director said, “This heralds a new beginning in JOHNEX’s quest to be Australia’s most innovative explosives supplier. The formulation/truck combination is so simple and robust that they cannot fail to make inroads into an area of the market where traditional suppliers have had it their own way for too long. JOHNEX explosives is looking to deliver this technology to the customer in the way that the customer wants not what suits the supplier. This is particularly exciting as we now have the explosives to match the accessories range that JOHNEX explosives have been marketing these past years.”
