Competitiveness Factors and Solutions

 

 

+

SUSTAINABILITY
Solutions that seek to innovate in the social aspects of the blasting process in order to achieve sustainable development and community protection.

PLASMA®
A blend of salts and rapidly expanding metallic dust delivers an innovative, non-explosive rock fracturing product for civil works and mining.

BLAST SITE WATCH®
A system that measures and controls the vibrations from blasts located near communities.

THE FIRST EXPLOSIVES COMPANY IN CHILE TO MEASURE ITS CARBON FOOTPRINT BY PRODUCT UNIT, ENAEX’S CARBON EMISSIONS ARE UP TO 40% LOWER THAN OTHER INDUSTRY SUPPLIERS.

ENERGY CONTROL

Solutions that seek mine stability by controlling the energy used during material removal. These solutions aim to ensure sustainable operations with appropriate slope and wall controls.

HIDREX® AND PANFEX®
Explosives specially designed to control slopes and blasts.

REACTIVE ROCKS

Solutions that seek to mitigate significant operating risks in mines where rocks react spontaneously given the presence of pyrite in the rocky massif.

PIREX®
This blasting agent is specially designed to retard the reaction of ANFO and the pyrite in the rock.

ENERGY OPTIMIZATION

Solutions that seek to reduce costs by replacing electric energy with chemical energy in the crushing and grinding processes. Optimized fragmenting processes generate savings in the mining process.

High Fragmentation
ENERGEX®
A high-power explosive product that improves rock fragmentation.

Mesh Optimization
VERTEX®
This blasting agent is characterized by its versatility, enabling cost reductions through mesh enlargement.

PRODUCTIVITY AND LOGISTICS

UBT TRUCK
Designed to manufacture and load emulsions in underground mines, this autonomously powered truck can operate for more than 12 hours.

EVS®
Enaex Value Simulator is a technological tool developed to quantify the value generated by the products for operational mining processes.

SAFELOCK®
A safety accessory that secures the detonator to the booster in order to prevent decoupling and making priming safer.

PREBLAST® SYSTEM
A method in underground mining for reconditioning rock with subsidence blocks. Enables production acceleration in the deepest mines with low-grade minerals.

UBEX ONE®
This dual, teleoperated underground equipment is a mechanized on-site loading system for pumpable, gasifiable emulsions, for use in tunnels and civil works.

CHEMICAL PRODUCTS

PRILLEX HD®
This high-density, high-purity ammonium nitrate is widely compatible with emulsifiers and is used to manufacture explosive emulsions and as fertilizer.

TRADEMARKS, PATENTS AND LICENSES

Enaex® is the Company’s most important brand and, in combination with others, represents a significant portion of corporate assets. Given their track record and use, some of the brands, including Amongelatina®, Iniciador APD®, Softrón® and Enaline®, have become market bellwethers. Milodón®, High-Performance Truck®, EVS® and Safelock® are some of the Company's other noteworthy trademarks. The following products stood out in 2016 and 2017: Pirex®, Hidrex®, Energex®, Vertex®, Panfex® Emulgex® and Preblast® and now robotics development brands like RoboMiner®, Mine-iTruck®, Stemming-iTruck® and iControl®.
