Atlas Copco has added two models of bulk pulverizers, the BP 2050 and BP 3050, to its range of silent demolition tools. Key design features include a specially angled shape and wide jaw for improved access to material and a speed valve for a more rapid open and close cycle.

“The speed valve actually helps lower the overall cost of ownership,” said Keith Becker, product development specialist of Atlas Copco hydraulic attachments. “If you reduce your opening and closing time, or cycle time, you’re reducing machine hours, operator hours and fuel consumption while increasing production.”

“Another feature that cuts down your time on the job and saves money is the high, constant power that these units generate at the jaw tips, even when they’re almost closed,” added Becker. “That extra power means you can use fewer bites to demolish a structure, for example. Every bite adds up. ”

The wide jaw not only makes it easier to feed in material, it also aids in the clean separation of rebar and concrete. The large jaw dimensions enable a high production output as well. Each model comes with a replaceable tooth-plate and cutting blades on the jaw which results in less down time in the field.

Common applications for the new bulk pulverizers include secondary reduction and separation, secondary demolition of reinforced concrete structures and separation of concrete and rebar. When equipped with the optional 360-degree hydraulic rotation device (BP 2050 R and BP 3050 R) the units can be used for efficient primary demolition of ceilings and walls. The Atlas Copco bulk pulverizers are available for carriers in the 18- to 35-ton classes.
