Explosive Formulation Pilot Plant

Metadata Updated: March 8, 2017

The Pilot Plant for Explosive Formulation supports the development of new explosives that are comprised of several components. This system is particularly beneficial for the development of Insensitive Munition (IM) explosives. The system consists of three remotely operated Brabender screwfeeders (figure 1) which feed the various explosive components to a 150-gallon formulation kettle. The system can be operated remotely from Building 813 and is capable of formulating up to 1,500 pounds of energetic material per day. Explosive material produced using the IM Formulation Facility can be flaked for storage or processing using the Sandvick Belt Flaker.
