Quality Control Tracking

Proper quality control throughout the manufacturing process ensures Hanwha maintain extremely low defective rate of its products. In addition, monitoring of quality of the products is performed in the fields continuously to maintain consistency of high quality in both areas of Process and Quality.
To make certain the quality of the blasting accessories delivered, Hanwha will ensure that all products are tested properly according to the procedures and standards before shipment. For this, the Hanwha quality assurance team will complete visits to manufacturing sites of all the suppliers and will conducts audits on their quality control process and activities.

Once the quality management process of the supplier are approved, written quality reports will be received and reviewed by Hanwha regularly before each shipment is made and then they will be kept for contract period. In addition, to protect the products from any risk of damage during transportation, we will make sure that all products should be transported after packaging in a container. Once the products have arrived at the magazine on sites, the Hanwha person who is in charge of handling the products will check if there has been any damage or change in the status of the packages. To maintain fresh products, a strict stock rotation system will also be implemented.

Bulk Systems

Through Hanwha’s expertise and proprietary technology, a suite of bulk products have been developed with excellent safety, blast efficiency and formulated to minimise fume propensity. Hanwha’s suite is comprised of three distinct products:

Hanwha’s flagship emulsion, XM1000, is a dual salt, high energy product with a low water content. Manufactured with a high efficiency emulsifier, XM1000 is a robust product that can be trusted in the toughest of downhole applications. Unique to Hanwha is XLOAD. XLOAD is a density modifiable heavy ANFO that can be manufactured with densities from 0.9 – 1.2 g/cc. Water resistant products can be manufactured from 1.0 – 1.2 g/cc. The benefit of XLOAD is that with the correct design, density can be maintained when loading wet and dry holes – preventing the need to load high expense, high emulsion pump products.

Initiating Systems

Hanwha has applied 60 years of experience, proprietary technology world leading expertise to develop best in class initiating systems and bring them to market. Hanwha’s initiating products include:

Hanwha has produced over 800 million detonators under ISO 9001 accreditation. Using the diverse range of products, Hanwha can ensure our customers requirements are met.

Hanwha’s Quality Control

Hanwha Corporation operates a ‘State of the Art’ manufacturing facilities in Boeun, located approximately 230km SE of Seoul. The facility was opened in October 1991, develops and manufactures of Initiating Systems, Packaged and Bulk Emulsion manufacturing.
It gives absolute comfort that all detonators that leave the Boeun facility have met the most rigorous quality control standards in the industry.

Boeun Facility

The Initiating Systems facility produces over 30M units per annum, Hanwha has produced over 800M units since its inception. Over the course of time, Hanwha engineering have been continuously improving the processes for safety, efficiency and quality.
Hanwha has developed an automated Signal tube manufacturing line which maintain sensor controlled diagnostics assuring the 3 layered tube remains within manufacturing tolerance. This production facility is another example of Hanwha leading technology.
In 2013 our IS manufacturing team created a step change in quality assurance by the addition of automated lines with X-ray imaging of every single detonator crimp. This technology developed ‘in house’ is now the global benchmark for manufacturing standard.

Hanwha’s “Quality Control Tracking” program covers its entire process: setting a high standard on its suppliers, handing of raw materials at its blasting accessories plant, using of those products at the customers’ site and monitoring post-blast results to ensure that quality is kept at high standard.
