2/ If ammonium nitrate and/or abrasive are not barricaded, the distances given in the table shall be multiplied by six. These distances allow the possibility of high-speed metal fragments of mixers, hoppers, truck bodies, sheet metal structures, metal containers and others, which can enclose the « donor ». If storage is conducted in bulletproof magazines recommended for explosives, or if storage is protected by a bulletproof wall, the distances and thicknesses of the barricades exceeding those prescribed in Table H-21 are not required. Water gels containing a substance classified as explosive as such shall be classified as explosives and shall be manufactured, transported, stored and used in accordance with the procedures laid down in this Section for explosives, unless otherwise specified in subsection (iv) of this subparagraph. those that do not contain a component classified as explosive; These are sensitized with metals such as aluminum or with other fuels. Water gels may be premixed in an explosives facility or mixed immediately before being released into the borehole on site. Class A explosives. possession, detonation or other maximum danger; such as dynamite, nitroglycerin, picric acid, lead azide, mercury fulminate, black powder, explosive capsules and explosive primers. Electrical equipment operating with explosives. Explosively actuated propulsion device – any special tool or mechanized device actuated by explosives, excluding propulsion devices actuated by a propellant.

Examples of electrical explosion devices are jet tappers and jet perforators. Special industrial explosives. Special industrial explosives – cast materials and moulds with plates and various other profiles, pellets and packaging of explosives, including dynamite, trinitrotoluene (TNT), pentaerythritol tetranitrate (PETN), hexahydro-1,3,5-trinitro-s-triazine (RDX) and other similar compounds used for energy-efficient moulding, expansion and moulding in metal processing, as well as for the dismemberment and rapid reduction of scrap metal. Magazine. Magazine – any building or structure, other than explosives manufacturing buildings, used for the storage of explosives. 3 « barricaded » means that a building containing explosives is effectively protected from a magazine, building, railway or highway, either by a natural or artificial barricade of such height as a straight line from the top of a side wall of the building containing explosives to the eaves of a magazine or building, or to a point 12 feet above the centre of a railway line or highway. will pass through such an intermediate natural or artificial barricade. Car marking. Every wagon containing explosives that has reached its designation or that is stopped during transport to no longer be part of interstate commerce must have cards bearing the words « Explosives – Handle carefully – Keep the fire away » affixed on both sides and ends of the car in red letters not less than 1 1/2 inches high on a white background. 4 If several magazines are located on the same property, each magazine must comply with the prescribed minimum distances from inhabited buildings, railways and highways and, in addition, at least the distances prescribed for « magazine separation », except for the quantity of explosives contained in the lid magazines in relation to the distance from the magazine to the magazines, containing other explosives.

Where two or more magazines are separated by a distance less than the specified distance from the magazines, those two or more magazines as a unit shall be considered as a single magazine and the total quantity of explosives stored in that unit shall be treated as if they were stored in a single magazine located on the premises of any magazine in the unit. and must respect the minimum distances specified by other magazines, inhabited buildings, railways and highways. Special industrial explosive devices. Special industrial explosive devices – explosion-actuated power devices and propellant-actuated power devices. Class B explosives. Possession of flammable hazardous products such as propellant explosives (including certain smokeless propellants), photographic flash powder and special fireworks. General danger. No person shall store, handle or transport explosives or explosives if such storage, handling and transport of explosives or explosives presents an unacceptable danger to life. Water gel (manure) Explosives and disintegrants – This section applies to the manufacture, storage, possession, storage, sale, transportation and use of explosives, disintegrants and fireworks. This section does not apply to the sale and use (public display) of fireworks, commonly known as fireworks, or to the use of explosives in the form prescribed by the Official Pharmacopoeia of the United States.

Containers containing ammonium nitrate shall be separated from the storage of explosives and the storage of explosives specified in Table H-22. Railway cars. Except in an emergency and with the authorization of the local authority, no person shall have or store explosives in a railroad car unless the car, contents and mode of loading comply with the regulations of the United States Department of Transportation for the Transportation of Explosives, 49 CFR chapter I. Only fire extinguishers listed or approved by a nationally recognized testing laboratory are considered eligible for used in explosive vehicles. See § 1910.155(c)(3)(iv)(A) for the definition of the list and § 1910.7 for nationally approved testing laboratories. (h) None of the applicant`s employees authorized to possess explosives is prohibited to any person listed in 18 U.S.C. 842(i); and general. Except as otherwise provided in this paragraph, abrasives, other than water gel, shall be transported, stored and used in the same manner as explosives. Water gels are dealt with in paragraph (h) of this article. The transport of explosives or other explosives, but not both, is permitted on bulk carriers, provided that a special wooden or non-ferrous container is installed for the explosives. These explosive caps or other explosives must be in shipping containers specified by the DOT: see 49 CFR Chapter I.

(f) has confirmed in writing that he or she is familiar with and understands all published state laws and local regulations relating to explosives for the place where he intends to conduct business; The manufacture of explosives referred to in paragraph (a)(3) of this section must also meet the requirements of section 1910.119. Storage. All explosives in railway facilities, truck terminals, wharves, port facilities or airport terminals, whether delivered to a consignee or transported to another destination, must be stored in a secure location, as isolated as possible and in such a way that they can be easily and promptly disposed of. Water gels or slurry explosives. These include a variety of materials used for blasting. They all contain significant amounts of water and high levels of ammonium nitrate, some of which is dissolved in water. The two main classes of water gels are: Note 1: The classification of explosives is described by the U.S. Department of Transportation as follows (see 49 CFR Chapter I): Warning required. Before detonating an explosion, the employer requires that a strong warning signal be given by the responsible person who has verified that all surplus explosives are in a safe place, that all persons and vehicles are at a safe distance or sufficiently covered, and that an appropriate warning has been given. Explosive.

Explosive – any chemical compound, mixture or device the primary or common purpose of which is to operate by explosion, that is, with essentially immediate release of gas and heat, unless such compound, mixture or device is otherwise expressly classified by the United States Department of Transportation; see 49 CFR Chapter I. The term « explosives » includes all materials classified by the United States as Class A, B and C explosives. Department of Transportation, and includes, but is not limited to, dynamite, black powder, pellet powder, explosives, explosive capsules, electric explosives capsules, safety detonators, safety lighters, fuse fuzes, squibs, cord, detonator, detonator, ammunition for small arms, ammunition for small arms, smokeless propellant, cartridges for power devices operated by a propellant and cartridges for industrial weapons.
