At bauma 2016, Atlas Copco will present its new generation of BC bucket crushers, which offer up to 80% higher output than its previous models. High resistance to wear and fatigue, alongside increased reliability despite minimal maintenance requirements make the new BC bucket crusher stand out. It is designed for carriers from 22 – 38 t and is available in two versions: BC 2500 and BC 3700.
Capable of crushing up to 110 tph, the bucket crushers offer a high level of flexibility in terms of operating reach, depending on the mobility of the carrier. The circular crushing cycle gives the new BC bucket crushers up to 80% higher output than previous models.
The advanced twin-drive system comprises two powerful hydraulic motors. The sturdy timing belt is designed for long service life and the system provides huge torque from the start. Full loading capacity can be used without risk of blockages, and the absence of slippage during start-up ensures constant power transmission and no extra load on the bearings. The internally mounted drive system allows a narrower shape without compromising loading capacity, providing enhanced usability and improved reliability. The automatic anti-lock mechanism gives continuous repositioning of the material, ensuring that even larger pieces are guided automatically in the direction of the crushing jaw. If the material gets jammed, the reversing function enables the operator to push the material back into the inlet, thus easily removing the blockage.
All types of inert material, including asphalt, stone and concrete debris, mine and quarry material, can be crushed and re-used on-site using a rig-mounted BC bucket crusher. Crushed material can be re-used directly or sold to third parties. This requires less mechanical equipment, lower transportation and dumpsite costs and only one operator who handles both the demolition attachment and the bucket crusher.
