What is Emergency Blasting?

Emergency Blasting is just that — blasting to fix an emergency. When emergencies occur in construction or from natural disasters, emergency blasting is necessary to protect others and the environment.

Why Use Dykon for Emergency Blasting?

Concrete demolition is the tearing down of concrete buildings and other structures with the use of explosives. More often than not, concrete demolition, and the removal of the rubble and debris, is utilized for the replacement of an old building, making way for a completely new structure. The original demolition must be completed before the new structure can be built.

Without concrete demolition, there wouldn’t be any space available for new residential communities or commercial properties to be built. The old must be destroyed to build the new.

Naples, Texas Train Wreck

At 3 p.m. Sunday, March 11, 2001, Dykon was contacted to help with an emergency train wreck in Naples, Texas. Dykon was onsite with drills, equipment, licensed blasters, drillers, and explosives by 1:30 p.m. the next day, and attended a meeting with the project managers at 6 a.m. that same morning. The project required two damaged railroad bridge piers demolished to make room for new pier construction. The old piers were damaged by a train derailment, and the piers were under 22 feet of swift running water due to flood conditions in the area. Dykon Blasting successfully drilled and shot the underwater bridge piers on schedule.

Spindletop Energy Solid Rock Blasting

Spindletop energy needed a drilling location shot out of solid rock for an oil well rig in western Oklahoma near Lawton. The drill rig pad had to be ready to go in four weeks, and about 75,000 cubic yards of rock had to be drilled and shot before Spindletop could even begin to start building the site for the oil rig. Dykon Blasting mobilized 4 Reedrill SCH 5000 high-production hydraulic track drills and a team of blasters to support them. The project was finished ahead of schedule.
