The company states, "In 1981, Maxam North America introduced an advanced explosives system to the mining industry based on HEF-High Energy Fuel, which when blended with ammonium nitrate prills forms Heavy ANFO. Heavy ANFO has significant water resistance, higher density, and greater energy than ANFO."
The impedance could never be equal and would rarely be above 40%-50% with minimal difference between ANFO and water gels.

2300 kilograms of ANFO explosive were used resulting in enormous damage in the building and the collapse of a large part of it.
Finally, other serotypes are portmanteaus or acronyms: Anfo (animal food), Ank (address not known), Ceyco (Ceylonese coconut), Chincol (Chinese egg, Colindale), Echa (egron and chamoiseau [family names of scientists who discovered this serotype]), and Inpraw (Indian prawns) (8).
"For example, alkane vapors and the ammonium nitrate fuel oil mixture (ANFO) are extremely explosive and have brought numerous disasters in recent years," he said.
It is recommended to the Ontario Ministry of Labour that all mines establish a working group to conduct a risk assessment with a view to improving lighting options for the ANFO loader.
Adquisicion de datos: para la adquisicion de los datos de refraccion sismica, que se utilizaron en este trabajo, se generaron frentes de ondas elasticas utilizando como energia fuentes explosivas (mezclas de cargas explosivas de pentolita y anfo) detonadas a un instante de tiempo conocido.
Debido a que, el mayor peso de los costos son los explosivos, el calculo se realizo en funcion de ello (ANFO Y MAGNAFRAC PLUS), sin tomar en cuenta los accesorios para voladura.
