Atlas Copco has expanded its Essential Case-Mounted
Atlas Copco has expanded its Essential Case-Mounted (EC) range of hydraulic breaker attachments by adding five Small Range breakers to the lineup that are small enough to fit in limited-access work environments, such as pipe trenches.
The new breakers fit 1- to 12-ton carriers, giving rental centers and contractors a fast ROI by simplifying maintenance and operation.
The new, Small Range breaker attachments excel in day-to-day breaking tasks for small-scale construction and demolition applications. For instance, a carrier operator can lower a Small Range EC breaker into a narrow trench to break apart oversize instead of digging a wider trench to fit a larger breaker.
Operators can use the breakers in noise- and vibration-restricted worksites because of Atlas Copco’s VibroSilenced Plus systems. These systems isolate percussion mechanisms from breaker boxes with polyurethane damping and seal all attachment openings to minimize noise and vibrations.
The breakers have service weights as low as 209 pounds and generate impact rates as high as 1,600 bpm to deliver effective impact energy to the breaking surface.
EC breakers also ensure smooth operation through integrated features such as nitrogen-gas assist. The nitrogen piston accumulator works with the hydraulic oil to accelerate the piston, which decreases the hydraulic oil demand from the carrier’s hydraulic systems and delivers consistently high-impact energy. 800.732.6762, www.atlascopco.us
