UniTrak’s first explosive application project took place in 1971 at the Volunteer Ammunition Plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA. In that project, a highly customized TipTrak™ bucket elevator was supplied for the handling of TNT.
Since then, UniTrak has become a recognized leader in handling explosive applications.
