The Explomet³, Velocity Of Detonation meter for explosives and fuel, is the latest measuring instrument from Kontinitro SA in 2022. Easy to use, more robust than his predecessor, the Explomet², it is based on the same technology. The light signal emitted during the explosion is transmitted from the explosive to the instrument by optical fibers. The light signal is converted into data by the Explomet³ and gives the V.O.D of the explosive.

The placement of the optical fibers on the explosive can be completely random. The Explomet³ automatically unscramble the optical fiber illumination order and restores the VOD data.

The accuracy of the Explomet³ is +/- 0.01 microseconds (0.00000001 seconds).

Our measuring instrument can calculate with extreme precision detonation velocities that can exceed 300`000`000 m/s.

The Explomet³ is designed as a black box, all the data (date, time, length, speed) entered and collected by the device are systematically saved on an SD card.

All data are stored internally in the instrument since the QC test. These data can be restored at any time on the external SD card. This feature is specially designed for data traceability.

The Explomet³ has a 7-inch resistive touch screen designed for harsh environments and frequent use. It is robust and can be used without or with gloves. Developed for VOD tests in the field, in quarries or in mines, it is the ideal choice for measurements with the EasyProbe System or DCS (Duplex Cable System).

The Explomet³ is simply the best measuring instrument manufactured by Kontinitro since 1987. The Explomet³ is a VOD measuring instrument designed with a self-calibrating quartz independently of the outside conditions. Designed to withstand temperatures between -40 and 80 degrees Celcius (-40 and 176 degrees Farenheit), it can withstand the worst conditions, such as rain, mud, sand, dust and snow. Its plastic case gives it great strength and makes this measuring instrument almost indestructible.
During the blast, the box is closed to avoid troubles.
