CDP – Explosives

As an explosive, CDP offers a lot of power.  Tests are underway to fully explore and characterize CDP explosive formulations and ETI plans to offer on-site bulk or small charge preparation systems for mining and quarry work.

A customer using CDP as an explosive would use a system consisting of the following components:
a)  Tank of compressed CO2
b)  Hopper of powdered reactants
c)  Mixer
d)  Loader or cartridge-filling stage

Properties of CDP Explosives:
a)  Energy Output:  4 kJ/g to 8 kJ/g depending on the formulation
b)  Critical diameter:  Less than 26 mm (less that 1″)
c)  Velocity of Detonation:  This is currently being studied
