The Royex rock breaking system is designed to break rock where conventional explosives are either prohibited by regulation or unsuitable for the task. Royex offers a simple, safe and efficient option for blasters, miners and civil engineers alike, where the impact of ground vibration, noise, dust and fly-rock control inhibit the use of traditional blasting methods. The Royex Generation II System is the world’s first propellant based rock breaking system to be aligned with a sequential delay-timed initiation system, the Maxfire Igniter. Today, no other propellant system can offer the versatility and functionality of the Royex Generation II System.
The system introduces the following unique features:
The Royex Generation II system propellant mixture is finely oxygen balanced and generates negligible dangerous gases when initiated. Combined with conventional tunnelling or mining ventilation, CO levels are below 5 ppm within a few minutes of blasting. These characteristics in partnership with the sequential timing offered by our unique initiation system provide the ability to achieve continuous operations in mining and tunnelling applications. By comparison to conventional explosives, overall cost savings have been proven in mining and quarrying applications with the use of Royex systems. Improved safety, less stringent storage requirements, better fragmentation control and improved operational flows all contribute to overall cost reductions.
The Royex System is 1.4S classified allowing the product to be transported and stored as a low explosive. Product sent to international destinations by air freight can generally be delivered within two weeks. In Europe and many other regions, the Royex system is classed as a pyrotechnic, (P2 class in the EU) which implies no necessity for its user to hold a conventional blasting licence. The P2 classification does not fall under the track and trace directive so restrictions associated with track and trace are avoided. The product does not function effectively unless placed in a drill hole, or confined, and as such is very safe to handle and store.

No throw leads to easier and quicker cleaning, less damage to support, no need for blasting barricades in narrow reef mining operations
Continuous mining possibilities. Optional configurations using the timing initiation system allow for multiple decking
Extended pit boundaries due to no vibration, no fly rock and less dust during blasting operations – prolonged pit lifetime
Reduced fly rock
High precision breaking for dimensional quarries, less wire sawing or downstream cutting
Reduced safety distances for machinery and personnel
No track and trace required
Complete 1.4S solution – less demanding storage, transport and product
1.4S timing solution and smoother breaking allows for greatly reduced vibration levels and precision blasting close to infrastructure
Low compromise on traditional drilling patterns
Timing and simplified design of shock tube connection speeds up preparation of blast
Less fly rock – significantly lower risk for damage
Through our new Maxfire igniter series, we can now offer the world’s most powerful RBC igniter with timing capability designed for optimal initiation of the Royex Gen 2 propellant mix.
Fully oxygen balanced and with a density close to one, the Royex Gen 2 propellant mix brings more power than ever seen in a rock breaking cartridge.
To ensure maximum flexibility, the cartridge has been separated from the igniter. The operator can choose from a range of cartridge sizes and range of igniter configurations including pyrotechnical timing.
Through Methodical development and exhaustive trials, we have been able to prove the cost savings and value addition when switching from conventional explosives to Royex in relevant applications.
