BMT releases Blast Anytime capability in Blast Movement Monitors (BMMs)
Blast Anytime feature simplifies installation and increases ore recovery
Blast Anytime BMMs can be installed in monitoring holes days or weeks ahead of a blast, making it easy to coordinate installation with production or to stay one step ahead of adverse weather events that affect mining operations or local communities.
Blast Anytime BMMs activate upon sensing a blast
More accurate dig lines
Activating at blast maximizes detection signal strength, which improves BMM detection rates and the translation of post-blast polygons.
Unaffected by blast delays
BMMs remain in a dormant state until activated by a blast. They are unaffected by adverse weather or other events that may delay a blast or cause installation problems (i.e. collapsed holes).
Simplified activation delay
Activation delay, the time a BMM takes to switch from dormant- to transmitting-state after sensing a blast, is easier to calculate in 1-hour increments.
Blast Anytime BMMs improve co-ordination with mine work procedures. Installation can occur days or weeks ahead of a blast, and can easily adapt to meet shot planning or adverse weather timing—reducing the occurance of monitoring holes collapsing or being blocked with debris, ice or water.
