What is Cardox?

Visit Cardox International LTD

Refractech Australia is the Australian agent for Cadrox International.

Cardox is a modern explosive tool used in many different industries including, but not limited to, cement, civil and mining. It uses liquid Carbon Dioxide in a small tube which is energised using a small electric charge to convert it into gas CO2. This expands to 660 times its original volume the tube and bursts the rupture disk at one end releasing the CO2 at around 40,000psi (3,000 bar). This happens in milliseconds.

It is a very effective way of removing large quantities of unwanted material and creating space where it is needed.
