ANFO explosives are supplied either in cartridge or bulk form and are suitable for use in dry borehole conditions. EPC-UK’s range of ANFO explosives includes Ammospex and Ammoblast.

Ammospex and ammoblast are oxygen balanced, free flowing mixture of ammonium nitrate prills and fuel oil. The lack of water resistance and low bulk strength of ANFO have to be recognised when designing blasts using these product.

Bulk ANFO may be delivered in a variety of approved containers and weights. Standard packaging available in the UK;

Ammospex – 2.5Kg cartridges, 10 cartridges per box.

Ammoblast – 25Kg bags, 1 bag per box.

Other sizes and weights are available on request.
