AMMONIUM NITRATE – Ammonium nitrate is a prill used extensively in the mining industry as a solid oxidizer ingredient for explosive compositions. Ammonium nitrate is very soluble with water and does not precipitate with any other common chemicals. Ask us how we can help you with Storage of Ammonium nitrate.

AMMONIUM NITRATE LIQUOR (ANL) – Ammonium Nitrate Liquor is a clear, colorless liquid that is heated to greater than 225 degrees fahrenheit to keep salt dissolved in a solution. ANL is infinitely soluble in water, and does not precipitate with any common chemical. ANL is predominantly used in the mining industry.

AQUA AMMONIA – Aqua ammonia is synonymous with ammonium hydroxide. Both distinctions are defined as a solution of ammonia in water. These high purity solutions are produced using demineralized water. Aqua ammonia can is a preferred form or ammonia for users who need to avoid storage of compressed gasses.  This form of ammonia can be injected as a liquid and vaporized with the addition of heat into water vapor and gaseous ammonia. Aqua ammonia is also used as a base to neutralize acidic conditions.

BLENDED NITRIC ACID (BNA) – Blended nitric acid is a clear and colorless (to slightly yellow) liquid that can come in varying strengths.  BNA is created by oxidizing anhydrous ammonia over a platinum catalyst at extreme temperatures. The resulting gases (nitric oxide and nitrogen dioxide) are cooled and demineralized into water. BNA is used for nitration of organics for production in plastics, surface coatings, dyes, pesticides, and explosives.

CARBON DIOXIDE LIQUID (CDL) – Carbon dioxide liquid is a colorless, odorless gas that is shipped under pressure as a liquid. This liquid absorbs readily into water to form carbonic acid, which is typically referred to as carbonated water.

DIESEL EXHAUST FLUiD (DEF) – DIesel exhaust fluid is a urea solution produced by combining pure liquid urea with clean plant stem condensate to produce a desired concentration. DEF is marketed as an ultra clean liquid fuel for catalytic abatement of nitrogen oxide emissions.

MIXED ACID – Mixed acid is a blend of strong nitric acid (98%) and oleum (sulfuric acid saturated with sulfur trioxide). Mixed acid is designed as a nitrating agent for industrial processes. Mixed acid reacts violently with oxidizable organic substances, to the point that ignition can occur. Mixed acid is used in the nitration of organics, as well as for production in plastics, surface coatings, dyes, pesticides, and explosives.

REFRIGERATION AMMONIA – Refrigeration ammonia is a colorless, odorless gas that is shipped under pressure as a liquid. Refrigeration ammonia has a pungent odor that is irritating to the mucosal membranes of the eyes and lungs. Contact with refrigeration ammonia liquid can cause frostbite. Refrigeration ammonia absorbs readily into water to form alkaline ammonium hydroxide solution, which is used as a refrigerant. Refrigeration ammonia can be easily compressed into a liquid, and back into a gas. Refrigeration ammonia is corrosive to aluminum, tin, copper, lead, silver, zinc, and their alloys.
UREA AMMONIUM NITRATE (UAN) – Urea ammonium nitrate is a solution created by dissolving amide nitrate salt in water. UAE produces a slight ammonia odor. It is predominantly used in fertilizer solution.

UREA FEED GRADE (UFG) – Urea feed grade is a small spherical white solid that is easily decomposed to ammonia and carbon dioxide by heating, and is soluble in water. UFG is added to cattle feed to boost protein content. UFG may also be used as a slow release fertilizer.
UREA PRILL –  Urea prill is a small, spherical white solid that is soluble in water. It is suitable for use as an agricultural and forestry fertilizer, as well as having other industrial applications which require a high quality nitrogen source.

UREA SOLUTION – Urea solution is a dissolution of pure amide directly into clear condensate so no ions of any metals are present. Urea solution is marketed as an ultra clean liquid fuel for catalytic abatement of nitrogen oxide emissions.

ANFO, Boosters & Fuel Systems Storage for ATF, OHSA or DoD Compliance

ANFO Storage Magazines are approved for the storage of a variety of materials to stay in compliance with Safety & Environmental regulations and rule. More details & Pricing at http://www.klsecurity.com/products/safety-compliance/atf-approved-storage.html

Whether your operation us utilizing bulk or packaged Ammonium Nitrate, ANFO, Emulsions, ANFO/Emulsion Blends or other agents for mining, construction or quarry operations, we have a Storage Magazine (indoor and outdoor certified) to ensure you stay in compliance with ATF, OHSA or DOD safety standards.

The Library below is meant for educational purposes on technical information of many explosives that our magazines are used for in compliance with safety & explosive hazards regulations.

AMMONIUM NITRATE – Composed of the nitrate salt of ammonium, this white crystalline solid is highly water soluble. Ammonium nitrate is predominantly used in agriculture as a high nitrogen fertilizer. One other major use of ammonium nitrate is as an explosive in mining, quarrying, and civil construction. Ammonium nitrate is the main component of ANFO (ammonium nitrate / fuel oil), which accounts for 80% of all explosives used in North America.

CAST BOOSTERS – Cast boosters are used to amplify the energy of a detonator. The booster acts as a conduit between a weak conventional detonator, and a low sensitivity explosive. (Ex: TNT). The most common form of cast booster is a cylindrical shell made of extruded or pressed cardboard or plastic which the explosive material has been cast into.

Safe and ATF compliant storage for High and Low Explosives in the workplace or worksite.

DELIVERY SYSTEMS – A delivery system is a generic term used to describe the method in which an explosive charge is ignited. 95% of all explosives are delivered into the borehole by bulk loading methods.
DETONATING CORD – Also known as a detonation cord, detacord, detcord, primer cord, or sun cord, the detonating cord is a thin, flexible plastic tube usually filled with pentaerythritol tetranitrate (PETN). The cord is a high speed fuse which explodes, rather than burning. Detonation cords are used for detonating high explosives, and act as a downline between the trigger and the blast area.

ELECTRIC DETONATORS – An electric detonator allows a circuit to be tested before firing a shot. Electric detonators come in three categories; instantaneous electric detonator (IED), short period delay detonators (SPD), and long period delay detonators (LPD). The detonation of SPDs are measured in milliseconds, while the detonation of LPDs are measured in seconds.

ELECTRONIC DETONATORS –  Electronic detonators offer better precision for delayed ignition. These detonators are designed to provide precise control to produce accurate and consistent blasting results. Electronic detonators are primarily used in mining, quarrying, and construction. These detonators are programmed in one millisecond increments from 1 millisecond to 10,000 milliseconds.

EMULSIONS – Emulsions are explosives composed of water in oil based explosives. Emulsion explosives are ideal for bulk loading both on the surface and underground. Emulsions are the most commonly used explosive based on ammonium nitrate / fuel oil (ANFO) chemistry. These explosives are water resistant, and offer a higher bulk density.
NON-ELECTRIC DETONATORS – Non-electric detonators are shock tube detonators used to initiate explosions. A hollow plastic tube delivers a firing impulse to a detonator instead of electric wires. This makes non-electric detonators immune to most hazards associated with stray electrical current. A non-electrical reaction travels at approximately 6,500 feet per second along the length of the tube with minimal disturbance outside of the tube.

Outdoor Storage Lockers and Buildings safely store hazardous materials, flammables, pesticides, herbicides, and other agri-chemicals. To prevent leaking and contamination, Securall safety products are equipped with a sump area. The capacity of the sump ultimately determines the storage capacity. OSHA requires sump capacity to contain 25% of the total holding capacity or 100% of the largest container (whatever is greater). Securall has standards sizes or custom-design options to meet these requirements.

Securall Outdoor storage is approved for the storage of flammable and combustible liquids (except the storage of Class 1A and the dispensing of Class 1A and 1B Flammable Liquids). Explosion Relief, which is found in Securall Haz-mat storage units, is required for storing and dispensing Class 1A and 1B Flammable Liquids.

For additional information regulating the proper application of storing flammables, please visit www.osha.gov or www.nfpa.org
