About “MKZ”

Small cumulative charges (hereinafter – MKZ) provide controlled ammunition destruction without their initiation (explosion), while in doing so:
• the negative impact of a regular ammunition explosion is minimized (no destruction of objects, contamination of areas with fragments, change in a landscape, etc.)
• an opportunity to use the remnants of ammunition and explosives with practical interests emerges (collection and processing of metals, chemical materials, etc.).

Based on the conditions of small cumulative charges usage, the disposal of ammunition can be carried out through complete or partial detonation, which results in defragmentation of ammunition cases (without explosion of the explosives).
