Company Profile

Can-Blast Inc. manufactures a pneumatic cartridge loaders for loading water gel or emulsion type cartridge explosives. The cartridges are propelled through semi-conductive plastic tubing using compressed air. This loading method is used with wet drilled holes, long hole blasting, pillar recovery, and retreat mining. The pneumatic loader is extremely portable, rugged and dependable. Can-Blast has been servicing the mining industry in Canada and abroad since 1970. During this time we have made many modifications to the loaders to improve reliability and loading production. Higher productivity is achieved because the pneumatic loader can be used as a de-watering device, it is capable of loading a range of cartridge sizes, cartridges are slit and tamped in one operation and it allows for expanded drill patterns and increased depths. For more information on the pneumatic loaders operation and application, please visit our webpage or feel free to contact our sales staff.


  • Pneumatic Cartridge Loader The Pneumatic Cartridge loader is a rugged built mechanical device designed to propel explosive cartridges (water gels and emulsions) into the borehole. The loading of cartridges in this manner leads to higher loading density in the borehole permitting expanded drill patterns and higher productivity (faster than loading and tamping individual cartridges). Holes up to 100 meters long in any orientation (down, up or horizontal) can be loaded quickly (average loading rate 1 cartridge per second) and safely.

  • Semi-Conductive Loading Hose There is two styles of loading hose smooth bore and grooved. Both are available in a variety of diameters and lengths. Our loading hose is manufactured with a special semi-conductive compound that prevents the build up of static electricity and reduces resistance of explosive product during loading. The specifications of our loading hose product line have been approved by the safety authorities. Improved performance of cartridge loading is achieved when using our Grooved Bore hose. Longitudinal grooves also help to prevent pressure spikes in the hose due to jammed or slower moving cartridges. Key Benefits: - Large coiled diameter for easier handling - Yellow Identifiable Stripe - Low Temperature Operation (Polar) Low Temperature stability and the large coiled diameter makes this loading hose very popular with northern customers.
