Burst Charges
 

 

H3 Bursting Charge
This energetic burst charge is used for small diameter shells (2...3 inch), since it makes a large and symmetrical burst possible. Besides the composition below, a ratio of chlorate to hemp coal of 10:3 is also popular. The sensitivity of this mixture to shock and friction is unexpectedly low, as long as the composition does not come into contact with sulfur or sulfur compounds.

Potassium chlorate................................75
Hemp coal (or Paulownia coal).....................25
Glutinous rice starch.............................+2%

Potassium Perchlorate Bursting Charge #1
This energetic burst charge can be used for small shells, but is unsuitable for the smallest diameters (2...3 inch). It is much safer to handle than the H3 bursting charge since it contains no chlorates.

Potassium perchlorate.............................70
Hemp coal (or Paulownia coal).....................18
Sulfur............................................12
Glutinous rice starch.............................+2%

Potassium Perchlorate Bursting Charge #2

This compositions sensitivity is quite low, although higher than that of black powder. The explosive force of this composition is lower than that of the ‘Potassium perchlorate bursting charge #1’. This burst charge is often used in shells of middle and large diameter (6...10 inch).

Potassium perchlorate.............................70
Hemp coal (or Paulownia coal).....................30
Glutinous rice starch.............................+2%

Potassium Perchlorate Bursting Charge #3
The potassium bichromate catalyses the decomposition of the potassium perchlorate. This composition’s sensitivity is quite low, although higher than that of black powder. The explosive force of this composition is lower than that of the ‘Potassium perchlorate bursting charge #1’. This burst charge is often used in shells of middle and large diameter (6...10 inch).

Potassium perchlorate.............................70
Hemp coal (or Paulownia coal).....................30
Potassium bichromate..............................5
Glutinous rice starch.............................+2%

Potassium Perchlorate Bursting Charge #4
The potassium bichromate catalyses the decomposition of the potassium perchlorate. This composition’s sensitivity is quite low, although higher than that of black powder. The explosive force of this composition is higher than that of the ‘Potassium perchlorate bursting charge #1’, especially when the particle size of the carbon is small.

Potassium perchlorate.............................70
Hemp coal (or Paulownia coal).....................30
Lampblack.........................................25
Potassium bichromate..............................+5%
Glutinous rice starch.............................+2%

Potassium Perchlorate Bursting Charge #5
Potassium perchlorate.................70
Sulfur...................................................12
Charcoal.......................................18
Dextrin......................................+2

Potassium Perchlorate Bursting Charge #6
Potassium perchlorate.................70
Charcoal.......................................30
Dextrin......................................+2

Potassium Perchlorate Bursting Charge #7

Potassium perchlorate.................70
Charcoal.......................................30
Potassium dichromate.....................+5
Dextrin......................................+2

Potassium Perchlorate Bursting Charge #8
Potassium perchlorate.................70
Lampblack.......................................25
Potassium dichromate.....................+5
Dextrin......................................+2

Potassium Perchlorate Bursting Charge #9
Potassium perchlorate.................70
Aluminum (German black)..............................30

Potassium Perchlorate Bursting Charge #10
Potassium perchlorate.................70
Sodium benzoate..............................30

Meal Powder
Saltpeter.............................................12lbs
Willow Charcoal...........................3 lbs
Sulfur Flour..............................2 lbs

Nitrate Bursting Charge

Sulfur...........................................10
Charcoal......................................15
Dextrin........................................+2

Ofca Bursting Charge
Potassium perchlorate.....................23
Potassium nitrate...............................22
Barium nitrate....................................11
Sulfur.................................................11
Antimony trisulfide............................11
Aluminum flake (325 mesh).....................22
