Charmec SF 404 D(V)


Charmec SF 404 D(V) is our nimblest, most compact underground emulsion charger, tailored for the specific needs of face and production charging in underground mines and tunnels with up to 36 m2 cross sections and a maximum face height of 6.5 meters. The machine is equipped with a FOPS/ROPS cabin and can be fitted with a hydraulically driven compressor, eliminating the need for an external compressed air supply.

The SF 404 D(V) is available both as a carrier for an external emulsion kit and with the Normet ECM emulsion charging module.

We have gathered extensive expertise in underground charging from the launch of the first Normet charger in the 1970’s. Ever since, we have continuously developed our charging equipment and solidified our place as the world-leading manufacturer of underground explosives chargers.
