INTRODUCTION

A NEW MEANING FOR

ROCK BREAKING

Since the formation of Nxco Mining Technologies (Pty) Ltd almost two decades ago, the company developed into a leading manufacturer of innovative, propellant based, rock and concrete breaking technology. Our distributors are selected according to Nxco principles towards quality, technical support and service. 

Nxco operates from a licensed facility in Pelindaba

 

close to Pretoria, where the products are manufactured and assembled.

Always in touch with the latest trends and demands, the experienced Research and Development team ensures that the company remains at the forefront of supplying specialised products that meet the most exacting, modern requirements.

PRODUCTS

Stemmed Cartridges

Nxco cartidges are marketed under two brands -Nonex™ and Nxburst™.  The brand has become synonymous with sensitive rock-breaking around the world.

The technology is based on a non-detonating chemical compound enclosed in a cartridge, which reacts quickly when ignited to produce high volumes of gas, mainly consisting of nitrogen carbon dioxide and steam.

Self-stemming Cartridges

The Fragmentor is our range of self-stemming cartridges. Fragmentor cartridges are available in two models – the Axial Piston (AP) and Concentric Case (CC) ranges.

The Fragmentor range is designed for:
• Serial installations (Stacking)
• Deep holes
• Through holes
• Fractured rock
• Porous rock
• Underwater application.

PRODUCT OVERVIEW

NXCO CARTRIDGES:

The better way to break rock and concrete

Environmental considerations – We care about the impact on our environment

Our cartridges break rock and concrete with low ground vibrations, controllable fly rock, reduced dust and noise and will only require localised clearance of equipment and personnel. The Nxco cartridge technology is based on a non-detonating chemical compound enclosed in a cartridge which reacts quickly when ignited to produce high volumes of harmless gas that mainly consists of nitrogen, carbon dioxide and steam. The cartridge is confined in a drill hole by means of stemming and when ignited generates a large volume of gas. This gas enters into the micro fractures created by the percussion drilling process, natural faults and weaknesses of the rock, resulting in the rock splitting due to tensile stresses.

Nxco cartridges are available in 13mm, 28mm, 34mm, 42mm, 60mm and 90mm diameters.
