Fortis™ Clear is formulated for use in applications where the generation of post blast fume could be experienced. It is specifically designed for use in dry, dewatered or wet blastholes.
There are numerous causes of post-blast fume, including ground conditions, geology, blast design, initiation sequence, explosive loading technique and explosive selection. The Fortis™ Clear System is recommended for use with the Orica Fume Risk Reduction process in environmentally sensitive areas. An assessment of current blasting practices and fume quantification are the first steps in fume management. Incorrect application of this product may result in elevated levels of undesirable post blast fume.
