Atlas Copco will launch its latest generation of its high output bucket crushers at this year’s Bauma event.
The new BC 2500 and BC 3700 bucket crushers reportedly provide high resistance to wear and fatigue and have up to 80 per cent more output than previous models, the manufacturer claims.
The machines are designed for smaller operations or jobs as an alternative to mobile jaw crushers, and are able to crush up to 99 tonnes per hour with its circular crushing cycle.
It features an advanced twin-drive system with two hydraulic motors.
The bucket crushers’ sturdy timing belt is designed for long service life and the system provides high levels of torque right 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.
Atlas Copco have designed the buckets with an automatic anti-lock mechanism that 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.
When adjusting the crushing size (granulometry) on the new BC bucket crushers, intuitive functionality eliminates the need for long experience or special craftsmanship, allowing the user to adjust the required jaw outlet correctly without any special tools.
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.
