Neptunex™

Neptunex™ is an underwater range of versatile user-filled explosive linear cutting charges based on the proven and established Dioplex™ range.  Neptunex™ is a cutting tool and is available in 450g/m, 1,200g/m, 3,600g/m and 5,600g/m sizes in both 500mm and 1m lengths.

Neptunex™ charges are assembled from pre-formed lengths of extruded aluminium, with the steel box-sectioned liners factory sealed and fitted. This design gives an extremely reliable seal, even at extreme depths, ensuring the linear jet can form in air. Filled charges are slightly negatively buoyant to make underwater handling easier. The end caps provided fit firmly onto the ends of the charge case and hold the detonator in the correct position for efficient initiation of the charge.  Neptunex™ may be attached to a target by use of Velcro strips, Underwater SquidTape™ or with strong magnets that can be purchased from the Alford range of accessories.

Neptunex™ may be initiated at either or both ends by a detonator, Detcord Loop Booster or Detonating cord booster (DCB). It is recommended that initiators are held in position by a Split Screw or Detonator Gland Nut.
