Dry Explosive Test Kit
Cost effective, rapid and reliable technology designed for presumptive identification of precursors used in manufacture of improvised explosives, which maybe concealed in shipments through border controlled check points, or used in suicide and terrorist plots.
Eliminates need for high cost products that involve complicated, multi-step operations, increasing operator manual handling time and exposure to hazardous chemicals.
Boasts a 99% success rate, a refreshing departure from the industry average of 80%.
Only kit of its type with the ability to detect such an extensive range of bulk explosives in one single test.
Weighs less than 0.02 grams and fits in a shirt pocket or wallet.
Produces immediate results – no need for off-site lab testing, instant “yes / no” indication. Kits contain no glass vials or hazardous or corrosive liquids.
Requires no electricity, no scanning, no mixing or equipment to operate.
Designed for presumptive identification of precursors used in manufacture of improvised explosives, which may be concealed in shipments through border controlled check points, or used in suicide and terrorist plots.
EXPLOSIVE GROUPS DETECTED:
Group 1 (Nitroaromatics) TNT, DNT, TNB, DNB, Tetryl
Group 2 (Nitrates) ANFO, ANIS, ANAL, ANNM, Blackpowders, UNIS,
NaNO3, KNO3, UreaNO3, AmmoniumNO3
Group 3 (Nitro-amines) HMX, RDX, SEMTEX, C4, C2 Sheet explosive,
Group 4 (Nitro-esters) Nitroesters – e.g. NG, PETN, EGDN, Nitrocellulose and Gunshot Residue Analysis *
*Smokeless gun powders (single, double and triple bases) are composed primarily of insoluble nitrocellulose and waxes. Ignition of nitrocellulose during weapon discharge releases gasses containing nitrogen oxides (NOX) which deposit onto surfaces up to 1 meter from point of discharge. This NOX residue deposit is readily detectable by the DETK if correct surface sample techniques are employed.
Group 5 (Oxdisers) Peroxides, MEKP, Hydrogen Peroxide, TATP, HMTD, Poorr-mans C4, Chlorates, Bromates
Detection occurs in Commercial grade explosives that are generally stabilized as firm wax like solid or in sheet, cord form and in Home Made Explosives (HME) that may be in powder, paste, liquefied or combinations of all three. All samples will vary in color and odor.
