Abstract
As the use of emulsion explosives in underground construction increased in the last years, many constructions sites also reported an increased amount of ammonia in the blasting fumes. This paper summarizes in a first part the work on Ammonia in blasting fumes so far reported in the literature. In a second part the results obtained from blasting tests in an underground blasting chamber with 3 different kinds of explosives under different shot conditions are presented. In an third part the results from calculations with a thermodynamic code are described. As the results from the experiments and the calculation are contradicting, it is concluded that the parameters influencing the ammonia formation in the blasting fumes could not be determined in real test results yet.
