Atlas Copco expands bucket crusher range
By Steve Ducker05 January 2017
Atlas Copco has added two models to the BC range of bucket crushers it launched at Bauma in Germany last year.
The new products are the BC 2100 and BC 5300 and their introduction means the range now covers service weights from 2,000 to 5,300 kg (4,409 to 11,684 lb) and is suitable for carriers from 18 to 54 t.
The company said that high resistance to wear and fatigue, combined with greater reliability, make the new BC bucket crusher one of the best pieces of equipment in its class.
It added that the crushers are often used as an alternative to a mobile jaw crusher for small demolition and recycling applications.
In addition, their circular crushing cycle gives the BC bucket crushers in the next generation up to 30% higher output than previous models.
Two useful features on the new BC bucket crusher provide stable productivity. 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 change the rotation direction, push the material back into the inlet and thus easily remove the blockage.
