Atlas Copco extends pneumatic breakers
08 June 2020
Atlas Copco has added two new models to its RTEX pneumatic breaker range.
These are the RTEX 15, weighing 17 kg (37 lb) and a variant of RTEX 25 that enables working with a shorter chisel.
The manufacturer says the RTEX 15 is an advanced breaker that covers the entire functionality of TEX 150PE and TEX 190PE 15 to 25 kg (33 to 55 lb) light pneumatic breakers.
The air consumption of RTEX 15 is reduced from 26 l/sec to 15.4 l/sec and has a weight reduction of 25% compared to the heaviest in class.
RTEX 25 is a powerful breaker that can replace functionality of medium breakers between 25 to 37 kg (55 to 81 lb). Air consumption in RTEX 25 is halved to 18 l/sec and weight is reduced by up to 30%. More variants are planned.
RTEX breakers are used to demolish and fragment concrete and are employed on civil construction sites by civil contractors and equipment rental companies.
