Abstract— Ten production blasts and one single hole confined blast have been monitored in two quarries in order to assess the measurable from of energy in which the energy delivered by the explosive is transformed in rock blasting. To determine the seismic wave energy, the kinetic energy and the fracture energy, respectively, transferred in the blasting process. The moisture content of the air can be reduced by the air blaster. Air blaster can also reduce the down time of the sand stone and also it increases the production and reduces the power consumption. 30% of the cost for overall production will be reduces by an air blaster.
