Atlas Copco Launches Industry's First Gas Breaker With Electronic Fuel Injection
📅 Fri January 20, 2017 - National Edition
Atlas Copco introduces its PROi gas breaker with electronic fuel injection (EFI), an industry first that offers significant benefits for users needing to break concrete, cut asphalt, tamp soil or drive ground rods. The Cobra PROi provides as much as 10 percent more power than its predecessor, the PROe, at all working speeds, while optimal combustion reduces fuel consumption by as much as 10 percent. Operators can start the breaker in almost any climate or at any altitude.
Unique EFI concept ensures smooth running
An integrated mechanical fuel pump employs a unique system that maintains constant pressure to the regulator without electricity. Atlas Copco also designed the PROi with a custom electronic fuel injection system that uses just 3 psi, 40 psi less than standard EFI systems. This approach minimizes pressure variations and voids in the fuel, ensuring smooth running. Starting the breaker is easy in any conditions; the Engine Control Unit activates during the first revolutions when the user pulls the starter cord.
Low vibration levels, easy to transport
Putting the operator first is embedded in Atlas Copco's DNA, and the Cobra PROi is a good example. Hand-arm vibration level on 3 axes is below 4 m/s2 to minimize operator fatigue.
Atlas Copco is exhibiting the PROi breaker January 17-20, 2017 at booth C4303 during World of Concrete.
