The Novatek hydropowered blasthole cleaner is used to remove drilling cuttings and water from drilled blastholes before charging with explosives. It ensures that the hole can be charged to the full depth and that excess water is removed – especially important if ANFEX is being used to avoid misfires and short breaking. The Novatek blasthole cleaner has the following features: • 3 Operating positions o Shut off o Flushing – high pressure water is sprayed into the bottom of the hole via 8 nozzles to wash out drilling cuttings. o Drying – water flow through the body causes a jet-pump effect which sucks excess water out of the blasthole via the 8 nozzles. • Integrated handle and discharge hose for ease of use. • Length of cleaning lance to suit required hole depth. The blasthole cleaner has a powerful spraying action and may also be used to remove misfires, following to normal mine safety procedures.
