AEL hosts SETH Academy Learners at AECI Dynamite Factory Museum

AEL hosted a group of SETH Academy learners at the AECI Dynamite Factory Museum in Modderfontein during June 2014. The goal was to give the grade 8 and 9 learners an experience of the work that AEL does and its importance in the South African and global landscape. Also, having first-hand experience of science and engineering principles in action, will serve to give learners insight into the field of science and technology. The AECI CSI Fund supports the SETH Academy in partnership with the University of the North West and as part of its CSI projects arranges this visit. The feedback received from the SETH Academy and the University of the North West is that the visit was a valuable experience for both learners and teachers.

Introducing AEL’s latest trail-blazing innovation – The Buffalo Booster

As part of our strong focus on Research and Development (R&D), AEL has unveiled the latest innovation in specialised blasting, the Buffalo Booster.

Why the AEL Buffalo Booster?

Traditionally, pentolite boosters have been in use for more than 60 years. The raw materials utilised in the manufacturing of pentolite boosters are explosive and therefore require licensed magazines for their storage which proves challenging in the market. Also, the high cost of melting TNT and the cooling of the cast pentolite, posed major problems to technologists. The Buffalo Booster can be manufactured at the source thus eliminating these challenges. As a result, understanding these and other challenges faced by our customers, led to the development of AEL’s latest offering, the Buffalo Booster.
