Atlas Copco expands bucket crusher rangePublished 2/3 at 13:33
Atlas Copco has added two bucket crushers BC 2100 and BC 5300 weighing 2t and 5.3t for use on carriers weighing 18t to 54t. They can be used as an alternative to a mobile jaw crusher for small demolition, recycling and road construction applications, offering flexibility of operating reach, depending on the mobility of the carrier.
A circular crushing cycle gives BC bucket crushers up to 30% higher output than previous models. Full loading capacity can be used without blockages and the absence of slippage during start-up ensures constant power transmission and no extra load on the bearings.
The automatic anti-lock mechanism 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 remove the blockage.
