Current levels above or below the recommended firing level can further increase the scatter in delay cap firing times. Extremely high currents can speed up delay firing times; Near the minimum firing current.

    MINING HAZARDS DATABASE. This Excel workbook applies to Hazards in Coal Mining Operations and their Methods of Control The data in this workbook was compiled by assessing the hazards that could exist in each coal mining activity or element, the mechanisms driving those hazards and controls needed for those mechanisms. The original data came from multi 3/5(1). Free essays, homework help, flashcards, research papers, book reports, term papers, history, science, politics.

In fact, a definite minimum quantity of electrical energy is required to fire a detonator, and in practice, a current of amp for 50 milliseconds is required, although in multi-shot-firing the minimum recommended current for the firing of detonators is in the order of amps at 42 volts with a circuit resistance of 30 ohms.

Bureau of Mines, ), by L. Ilsley, Donald Henry Zellers, Alva Britt Hooker, and United States. Bureau of Mines (page images at HathiTrust). Common causes of misfires in electric shot firing circuits include the following: > Dirty connections > Faulty exploders > Voltage reduction when firing from the mains > Current leakage caused by: damaged insulation on detonator leading wires - unprotected joints touching conducting strata or a wet face > Exceeding the maximum number of.

Circuit used with an ignitron to deliver a pulse of current of amperes in the forward direction, from the igniter to the mercury, to start a cathode spot and to control the time of firing.

Misfires with Electric Shot Firing: In electric shot firing faulty connections, detonators left-off unconnected, lead wires becoming bare during stemming internally shot-circuited cable / damage. radio-frequency current in an electrical firing circuit is very real, and without doubt can result in extreme consequences.

The hazard is associated with the use of electric detonators and arises when the lead wires to the detonator are unwound and extended into a configuration that resembles and behaves as a dipole receiving aerial,File Size: 20KB.

In wet work, or only slightly damp work wliere the rock or earth contains mineral salts, there may have been enough leakage of current from the cir- cuit to cause the caps in the mid- dle of a series to misfire. Too many electric blasting caps may have been connected in one series, resulting in current leakage from center caps.

Shot firing cables should be tested for any breaks or defect in insulation between conductors by means of ohmmeter before each blast to avoid misfires and.
