Mini booster for ignition charges

Mini boosters are used to ignite slurries and emulsions to full detonation.

The initial shock wave travels through the ignition line; the detonator then initiates the mini booster, giving the energy impulse necessary to initiate larger charges.

EURENCO manufactures X-Pipe, a PETN-based mini booster.
