TRANSFORMING YOUR DATA INTO GAME-CHANGING INFORMATION.
Working with your blasting company, we will ensure that the energy in your blast is being used efficiently. Using seismic analysis, we are able to eliminate holes and decks in the blast, while limiting the impact on surrounding communities.
No two seismographs are created equal and IGS only works with the best. The Minimate Pro™ by Instantel® can record more samples per second than any other seismograph on the market, at 65K sps versus 1024 sps. This granularity allows us to make informed suggestions on how to improve the efficiencies of your blast.
We do more than deliver a service. We work alongside your operation, blasting company, local property owners and the municipality, creating a collaborative environment, to deliver the best possible solution for you.
Extremely cost effective.
Changes are made on a shot-by-shot basis to fine tune the blast and track modifications.
Signature Hole Analysis can be shot in with the production blast
Generation of synthetic waveforms off new timing patterns to predict PPV and frequency levels.
Pin-point exactly where peak readings are occurring.
One-on-one consultation with the blaster.
Analysis is received one to two days after we receive the blast report.
The most advanced seismograph technology on the market.
HOW IT WORKS
One or two advanced seismographs, recording at 65,536 samples per second, are placed behind the blast. A signature hole is detonated in with the production blast.
Using the event data, we review hole timings, how effectively the energy from the blast is being used, pin-point which hole in the blast pattern caused the peak reading and review the efficacy of the timing patterns.
Working alongside your operation and blaster, we make suggestions to adjust timings, add/remove decks and expand the blasting patterns, based on your concerns or targets.
Through our analysis, we work with blast designs to improve fragmentation, reduce PPV levels, reduce the impact to neighbors, lower complaints and increase profits!
WHAT THE ANALYSIS SHOWS
How differences in timing deviations can affect the blast and whether they are being applied effectively.
How PPV levels are affected by changes to the timing sequences and signature hole analysis.
Validate any claims of a toe issues, then pinpoint exactly why the issue is occurring.
Reduce PPV levels by using hole to hole interactions and cancellations.
Determine where a hole or deck can be eliminated, or where the pattern can be expanded.
Validate the electronic detonators are firing exactly according to the blast plan.
Review how erratic the nonel timing scatter is and whether it is affecting the performance for the blast.
Review how different timing and vibration waves from parts of the blast affect fragmentation to improve it.
Validate the timing sequences with a signature hole analysis that is done in with the production shot.
The analysis will show whether any excessive sub-drilling is occurring.
