Mortars used by Midwest Fireworks as the firing vessel for aerial shells. These mortars are made of HDPE (high Density Polyethylene) pipe. If, for whatever reason, a shell failed to launch and exploded in the mortar, this material will absorb the explosion without any shrapnel being expended. In accordance with the latest State requirements steel mortars are no longer used by Midwest Fireworks.
