This invention provides an improved method of foaming a water-in-oil emulsion explosive wherein a gassing agent which is a water-in-oil emulsion containing an aqueous solution of sodium nitrite in its discontinuous phase is mixed with the emulsion explosive. The sodium nitrite reacts with ammonium nitrate in the discontinuous phase of the emulsion explosive to generate small particles of gas which are distributed throughout the explosive. The method improves the gas bubble distribution and enhances the sensitivity of the explosive to blasting cap initiat...
In a method of chemically foaming an emulsion explosive comprised of oxidizer salt, carbonaceous fuel, water and emulsifier wherein a gas generating material is admixed with the said emulsion explosive to react therein with the evolution of gas to foam the said emulsion explosive, the said gas generating material comprises a water-in-oil emulsion of an aqueous solution of sodium nitrite, a carbonaceous liquid and an emulsifier.
