An Explosive Investment In High-Purity Material

Thu, 01/08/2009 - 4:25am
The Jet Pulverizer Co. of Moorestown, NJ, is now working with African Explosives Ltd., which is located in South Africa, to produce the finest high-purity material for its silicon metal detonator fuses.

African Explosives came to Jet Pulverizer in search of a unique requirement for a high-purity powder with a specific particle size distribution. The company needed a 3.0-micron mean with a high percentage below 1.0 micron.

Jet Pulverizer mills have been processing high-purity powders for more than 60 years. In certain markets, such as the pyrotechnic industry in which African Explosives is a member, having the exact particle size distribution can make or break a workable application, according to the company.

With its processing knowledge and various mill designs, Jet Pulverizer was able to meet the customer's goals and provide a system design that met its commercial needs.
