Sodium Cyanide Import procedures

As a Sodium Cyanide supplier, we assist our clients to comply with export laws from China.

Our End Users and importers are required to provide their “Import permit license” and “End-user Certificate” declaring the specific application. Depending on the jurisdiction the “Import permit license” is usually issued by the ministry of mines, while the miner or importer must provide the “End-user Certificate”.

The licensing process requires 30 days before we can commence the first shipments.

Chemical gassing agents -In the case of emulsion explosives, using Acetic acid can accelerate the gassing process. The chemically gassed emulsions may take 40 – 50 minutes for completion of gassing within the blast holes, particularly when the emulsion is colder.

In cases where acetic acid is used, it is added to the emulsion prior to gassing, the desired amount of acid is mixed in the emulsion, before adding the gasser.

A gassing solution comprising sodium nitrite in water together with the selected enol compound and acetic acid is introduced into the emulsion explosive at the blast hole by entraining the gassing solution into a stream of the emulsion explosive using pumps.

The solution pH is an important parameter in the gassing of emulsion explosives due to the high cost associated with acid addition therefore a pH value should preferably be maintained at 4.1 or below.
