How It Works

The WebGen™ system completely eliminates the need for down-lines and surface connecting wires, communicates through rock, air and water to initiate blasts reliably and safely, removing people from harm’s way.

WebGen™ enables new mining methods and blasting techniques to increase productivity and reduce blasting costs. Using low frequency magnetic waves to communicate to each WebGen™ primer prior to a blast, WebGen™ is the only commercial explosives product with SIL 3 rating.
