Atlas Copco launches a range of four rig-mounted bucket crushers for efficient and economic recycling of all types of inert material on site. Asphalt, stone and concrete debris as well as mine and quarry material can be crushed and directly re-used on site or sold to third parties.
Rig-mounted bucket crushers are an answer to the EU directive on waste management that demands a recycling quota of 70% for construction and demolition waste by year 2020. Atlas Copco bucket crushers reduce the mechanical equipment on site, as well as transportation and dumpsite cost. They can be employed at all urban worksites, especially in confined conditions.
Hydraulic bucket crushers from Atlas Copco offer a wide aperture bucket with large capacity. The output size can be easily adjusted from 20-120 mm (BC 1500: 20-100mm).
The range follows the strategy of lower cost of ownership which is common in all hydraulic attachments from Atlas Copco. Bucket crushers require low maintenance: a 30 hour greasing interval and only two grease points are the standard maintenance.
All crucial parts are long-lasting even under extreme stresses. The bucket jaws which take the most stresses, follow a clever wear part concept. They can be inverted, top and bottom jaws can be exchanged or single jaws can be rotated by 180 degrees to also use the rear part.
The bucket crusher range consists of four types of 1500 – 4900 kg service weight which can be used on any excavator larger than 12 tons.
