Breaker Technology (BTI) Introduces Hydraulic Breaker ’Powerhouse’

Fri July 08, 2011 - National Edition

The BXR150 at 15,000 ft.-lbs., is designed for rugged, continuous duty for use in demanding breaking applications. It offers an extra long stroke design, which improves the power-to-weight ratio of the breaker, providing a wide carrier range (120,000 to 220,000 lbs. [54,431 to 99,790 kg]) and power available. Precise tolerances between the piston and cylinder provide high efficiency, blow rate and power, according to the manufacturer.

Large cross section upper and lower shock absorbing isolators reduce vibration feedback to the carrier. BTI’s front head restraint system tightly guides the front head within the housing, reducing loading to the tie rods and the upper portion of the breaker. A narrow box housing design is well suited to tight trenching conditions.

The BXR150 has a working weight of 12,000 lbs. (5,443 kg), which may vary depending on bracket. Tool diameter is 8 in. (20 cm), flow range is 85 to 120 gpm (321 to 454 L) and operating pressure is 2,030 to 2,755 psi.

The frequency range is 260 to 425 bpm in long stroke mode (high impact), 340 to 530 in short stroke mode (high frequency) — manually controlled via hydraulic piloted stroke control.
