  • Cruiser Charging Unit (CCU)

    BME’s Cruiser Charging Unit (CCU™) is one of a range of compact charging systems available for use with BME’s range of Megapump™ emulsion formulations. The Model 2 CCU™ is fitted with BME’s new Model 2 Mobile Pump™ and Intelligent Control and Recording™ (ICR) System with recording and reporting functionality. This represents not only the forefront in mechanised emulsion technology, but significantly improves the safety of underground emulsion pump technology. In operation, the positive displacement Mobile Pump on the CCU™ delivers both a double salt emulsion and sensitising solution simultaneously where it is mixed in the charging lance before entering the blasthole.

  • Portable Charging Unit (PCU)

    BME's Portable Charging Unit (PCU'™) represents the forefront of pumpable emulsion technology available for use in narrow reef mining operations. BME's PCU'™ is designed in house for the delivery of BME's range of Megapump™ emulsion formulations, increasing the safety of daily blasting practices through their UN 5.1 classification. The PCU™ is a positive displacement pump designed to work with BME's patented ‘Closed Emulsion System™’. The system eliminates waste while simultaneously delivering a predetermined mass of double salt emulsion and sensitising agent to each blasthole, sensitising the emulsion as it enters the blasthole. The PCU™ is manufactured for rough underground conditions but is also light and compact enough to be carried and operated by mining personnel.
