Cloud Integrated System for Explosives Bulk Trucks
Designed for Surface and Underground Mining

Automatically load holes using a blast design and capture as-loaded data for report generation and analytics.

BLASTMETRICS

BlastMetrics is a product developed by Paige Engineering Limited (PEL) who specializes in the design and manufacture of delivery equipment for the commercial explosives industry. 

BlastMetrics (BM) is a Cloud integrated control system, meaning Blast Designers can export drill and blast designs to the BM platform from which Bulk Trucks can fetch and use design specifications to automatically load holes. All the ‘as-loaded’ data is recorded to the cloud for post blast reports and analytics.

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

Many mines invest in state-of-the-art Blast Design Software which creates a drill and blast plan and increasingly, “smart” drills are accurately locating and drilling blast holes. Unfortunately, the precision of execution ends after the hole has been drilled: the ability to accurately load holes with explosives exactly according to plan is non-existent. PEL’s BlastMetrics system solves this issue as it can be directly integrated with blast design software to receive the blast plan design, automatically load holes according to design specifications and then record all ‘as-loaded data’.  This data is then fed back into various systems for post report generation and analysis. Without proper loading, one cannot expect to achieve accurate fragmentation per design: the PEL system solves this problem. BlastMetrics also provides complete transparency and accountability with regards to the loading process as all data is electronically logged. Other key benefits are real-time progress updates of loading operations which are instrumental for planning and operations departments. 

OTHER CAPABILITIES

• Datalog only: BM can also be installed as a passive, monitoring only solution. At a minimum, it captures the exact location of the delivery vehicle during a pumping cycle, the mass of the product delivered in that cycle and with a mobile app or a GPS system, it can also capture the location of the hose. This information is 100% independent of operator input and is available through a web interface whenever the unit is connected to the internet – as simple as it sounds, just this basic information can be transformative. The system can also capture operator ID and provides an interface for the operator to input information during loading such as density checks, condition of the bore-hole, problems, safety checklists, etc.

• Online or Offline: BM can work even if internet connection isn't available all throughout a site. Data can be transfered at Wifi hotspots or over USB.

HARDWARE KIT 
INSTALL ON ANY VEHICLE! 

Already have a truck? Then buy a control system kit. Our systems are very flexible with configurable sensor inputs and is compatible with most hydraulic systems.

 

Two Configurations

Same hardware kit, but two different ways to use it:

  1. Data capture only

    • Best suited for when you want data capabilities and QC tools but don't want to replace the controls.

  2. Fully integrated control system

    • Best suited for when you want to upgrade to a state-of-the-art control system with the automated hole loading features using design plan data.
