RAM offers render safe services for commercial and bulk explosives

Offering vast experience working with explosives, RA McClure (RAM) has expanded its business to include Render Safe services for commercial and bulk explosives.

Specialising remediation applications for improperly stored, damaged, discarded, misfired and abandoned explosives, RAM offers tools necessary to safely identify a wide range of explosive materials – from TNT to nitroglycerine to ammonium nitrate – and rendering safe potentially dangerous and deadly situations.

RAM provides complete turnkey render safe service from initial situation consultation with industry and government agencies to final explosive neutralisation and issue resolution. The team offers a range of expertise for accurately identifying the explosive compound and associated risks.

Robert McClure, president of RAM, says: “Because of our extensive experience, we can identify safer and more economical ways to eliminate the risk. We work on behalf of the client with all necessary local, state and federal agencies to obtain the necessary regulatory approvals.”

RAM’s qualified team employ a variety of tools at its disposal to analyse and neutralise the explosive materials present. Technicians rely on field explosive detection kits to distinguish the type of explosive present and use portable X-Ray systems for identifying the condition of the explosive material. Borehole cameras detect unexploded materials from blasting operations at manufacturing and storage facilities, mines, and oilfields, while video and closed-circuit TV are used to identify explosives at a distance. Rated up to 6.5 lb of TNT equivalent, the company’s explosive containment trailer gives RAM the flexibility to contain and move sensitive explosive material.

RAM offers several methods for explosives removal and site remediation and selects the best solution, based on the individual application.

Carlton Lehman, P.E., project manager for RAM, says: “We want to fully solve the problem by rendering the site safe, but we don’t take one hazard in turn it into another during the process. Our services include environmentally safe options for destroying commercial and bulk explosives.”

“The Environmental Protection Agency is transitioning away from burning to chemical neutralization for a more ecofriendly, biodegradable and biostable method of destroying explosives,” adds Lehman.
