Tramac Releases Heavy-Range V2500 Hydraulic Breaker

Sun August 24, 2008 - National Edition

Tramac has released the V2500 into its line of heavy-range hydraulic breakers.

The V2500 is designed for demolition, excavation, rock breaking and trenching.

The V2500 is for carriers from 59,500 to 88,200 lbs. (27 to 40 t) and has an operating weight of 5,555 lbs. (2,520 kg). With an operating pressure of 2,248 psi (155 bar), the V2500 has a flow range of 46 to 66 gpm (175 to 250 Lpm). This hydraulic breaker is rated at an impact energy class of 8,000 ft.-lbs. and has an impact frequency range of 300 to 500 blows per minute.

Several new features have been incorporated into the V2500 design, including a one-piece bushing and a large tool diameter of 6.3 in. (160 mm). The principal wear parts, including the bushing, are field-replaceable without dismounting the breaker from the carrier or removing any tie rods. Up to 2.5 gpm (9.5 Lpm) can be diverted through the integrated flow control to protect the breaker from carrier overflow. A high back-pressure tolerance of 363 psi (25 bar) allows the V2500 to be installed on a wide range of carriers.

As with all Tramac heavy-range breakers, the V2500 reduces the transfer of potentially damaging energy back to the carrier with variable-speed breaker technology. This technology senses changes in material hardness and automatically adjusts the breaker to the optimal combination of impact energy and striking rate. Additionally, an energy recovery system recycles recoil energy and adds it to the next blow.

Tramac said maintenance for the heavy-range breaker line is minimal due to a blank fire protection feature that prevents metal-to-metal contact that can damage a hammer. The heavy-duty, abrasion-resistant cradle also protects the hammer and its internal components from damage and excessive wear. The cradle is silenced to reduce noise on the job site.
