Destruction of detonators

Detonators that are too old to be used or damaged should be destroyed. Occasionally undamaged detonators may be destroyed by blasting them together with explosive in a blasthole. Cut away the tube and drop the detonators into the blasthole, one by one. Detonators may also be blasted by taping them to an explosives cartridge which is blasted. If the explosive cartridge is blasted in the open, take precautions against shrapnel and airborne shock waves.

When larger numbers of detonators must be destroyed or when damaged detonators must be destroyed contact Dyno Nobel or its representative for advice.
