DCU510 – Detonator Carrier Unit

The DCU510 reduces the UN Hazard Classification and compatibility group from 1.1B to 1.4S*, improving safety when storing and transporting electric and non-electric detonators.

The DCU510 series is widely used by demining companies, NATO and EOD teams in the UK (Army, Navy, RAF) and worldwide and also has applications in demolition, quarrying, mining and construction.
