At the present day, the non-explosive methods for rock breaking have become popular for all the right reasons. The conventional rock breaking methods involve a lot of risk for the surrounding population and properties. Thus, the non-explosive techniques have been developed which are very efficient in their work but do not impact the surroundings.
Some of the well-established rock breaking companies are increasingly using products such as the cartridges, rock breaking chemical powders, water jets, and other blasting agents. Each of these products is eco-friendly, and there is no involvement of vibration, noise, toxic gases, and fly rock issues.
All these environment-friendly agents are capable of demolishing concrete and rocks no matter how hard they are. Most importantly, non-explosive agents help in controlled blasting which is never possible when using the conventional methods of blasting. Understandably, the non-explosive way of rock breaking will have fewer regulatory obligations and logistical issues.
All these non-explosive agents are incredibly versatile and therefore can help the construction industry in several ways. For example, they enhance the fragmentation process as these agents can perfectly coordinate the drilling pattern, stemming and charge variation. The use of non-explosive methods for rock breaking has significantly minimized the operational costs for companies.
