The BlastWeb II Revolution

Among the many innovations by Dyno Noble, BlastWeb II stands out. It’s a next-generation digital electronic initiation system that allows for safe, secure, controllable, and reliable underground blasting from the surface. This system leverages advanced digital technology to integrate with the mine’s existing infrastructure, providing web-based network capabilities with minimum user interaction.

Why Choose BlastWeb II?

Safety and Security

In the context of underground blasting, safety and security are paramount. BlastWeb II ensures the removal of personnel from the underground environment during and post-blasting, thus eliminating exposure to hazardous fumes and gases. The controlled blasting authentication requires a unique password-encrypted Near Field Communication (NFC) blast card, preventing unauthorised blasting.

System Capabilities

BlastWeb II also boasts superior system capabilities. Its conventional tagging mode utilises location-based tagging with sides, rows, hole numbers, and detonator numbers. This allows users to tag the detonators’ locations and later send delays to the detonators via the Tagger when all detonators are connected to the harness wire.

Revolutionary Build

The design of BlastWeb II is modern and lightweight, crafted to withstand the demands of safe and reliable blasting. It uses advanced technology and a user-friendly interface to ensure optimum performance.

Integration

The advanced digital technology of BlastWeb II allows for integration with the mine’s existing underground network, thereby providing web-based network capabilities.

User Friendliness

BlastWeb II is designed to be easy to use, with clear instructions and information to navigate through different options and blasting procedures. The web-based interface for the Surface Blast Controller provides easy access to real-time events and warnings of any status changes.

System Adaptability

BlastWeb II also shows great adaptability. The Portable Blast Control Unit II provides the same functions as a fixed Blast Control Unit (BCU) but offers the flexibility to be used in areas with minimal infrastructure.

BlastWeb II System Components

The BlastWeb II initiation system integrates seamlessly with all types of initiation systems including shock tubes, DigiShot® Plus 4G, DriftShot®, and DriftShot Starters.

Surface Blast Controller (SBC)

The SBC is a crucial component of the BlastWeb II system. It enables centralised blasting from the control room and is password-protected with 2-factor authentication. All events are displayed and stored in real-time, and the SBC supplies warnings of all faults or errors on the system. It allows for fault diagnostics and problem resolution before the blasting time.

Blast Control Unit (BCU) II

The BCU II provides upstream communication to the SBC and downstream to the last detonators via the mine’s existing communication network. The BCU II can be used in a centralised or standalone blasting mode. It can link via Wi-Fi, fibre optics, or an Ethernet network to the SBC to form an integrated communication system.

CE4 Tagger

The CE4 Tagger is a leading innovation from Dyno

Nobel and the best of its kind in the industry. It is an inherently safe device used for tagging, testing, and troubleshooting. Each detonator is assigned a unique ID and timing programmed into the detonator memory.

Firefly

The Firefly is a critical component of the BlastWeb II system. It is used to test the communications between the BCU and the detonators.

Portable BCU II

The portable BCU II provides the same functions as a fixed BCU but offers the flexibility to be used in areas with limited or no infrastructure. It is powered by a lithium-ion battery and only communicates when it is connected and logged onto the communication infrastructure and SBC.

Integration of BlastWeb II with Initiating Systems

The BlastWeb II system supports the following products:

  • DriftShot Starters
  • NetShock (Starter)
  • 4G Detonators
  • CyberDet I

Features and Benefits of BlastWeb II

BlastWeb II offers a multitude of features and benefits that make it an ideal choice for any underground blasting application.

  • It generates real-time blast reports that are stored automatically.
  • It integrates with initiating systems using the mine’s existing infrastructure.
  • It requires a specific blast card with a unique password for blast initiation.
  • It has a user-friendly application with limited training necessary.
  • It allows for the removal of personnel from underground before blasting.

Safety and Security with BlastWeb II

Safety and security are paramount when it comes to underground blasting. BlastWeb II ensures that all personnel can be above ground at the time of blasting, eliminating exposure to fumes and gases. The system continually tests all detonators and communicates with the BCUs to limit potential misfires. It requires an NFC card and two-factor authentication to execute the blasting process.

User Friendliness of BlastWeb II

BlastWeb II is designed to be user-friendly. It provides easy-to-follow instructions and information to navigate through different options and blasting procedures. The web-based interface for the Surface Blast Controller allows information to be easily accessible to view and monitor real-time events. It has visibility of warnings and notifications of any status changes.

System Adaptability of BlastWeb II

BlastWeb II shows great adaptability. The Portable Blast Control Unit II provides the same functions as a fixed Blast Control Unit (BCU) but offers the flexibility to be used in areas with minimal infrastructure. It is powered by a lithium-ion battery and only communicates when it is connected and logged onto the communication infrastructure and SBC.

Conclusion

In conclusion, Dyno Nobel’s BlastWeb II is a revolutionary system that redefines the drill and blast industry. With its advanced digital technology, integrated network capabilities, and user-friendly interface, BlastWeb II is setting new standards for easy, safe, and reliable underground blasting from the surface.
