Before you begin your next project, one of the most time-consuming parts is realising you have to get through the hard bedrock under your site's surface. It is possible to remove this rock without the correct equipment. This can cause massive delays for your project start date. It'll also drive your project's overhead through the roof.
Drilling and blasting are one of the most common methods for rock breaking in Australia and around the world. This method is very flexible, and you can easily tailor it to match the rock type and terrain of any project. In turn, you'll get cost-effective and fast rock blasting that keeps your project on track.
Now that you know what companies use rock blasting for, what is it? Simply put, this type of excavation is mechanical demolition paired with the controlled use of explosives. It's an effective way to perform rock breaking, and you can then use your equipment to excavate them.
You'll need drilling equipment to start the process. This equipment includes an excavator tool that comes with a rock breaking tool attached to the drill. You can also use the drill attachment to cut holes directly into the rock that you want to break down and excavate. Your blasting contractors then fill these cut holes with explosives. They rig these explosives with a charge before detonating. The finished result is a clear area that's ready for your project to start.
Drilling and blasting are very common in quarrying, mining and civil engineering. However, it also has very useful applications in a broad range of construction sectors.
