Atlas Copco Announces Addition Of Bulk Pulverizers To Silent Demolition Line

Atlas Copco BP 2050 R, bulk pulverizer with hydraulic rotation option.

Atlas Copco has announced the addition of two models of bulk pulverizers, the BP 2050 and BP 3050, to their 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 for 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.

Atlas Copco updates ROC Manager surface drilling software

Atlas Copco announces availability of ROC Manager 3.0 planning and administration software, replacing ROC Manager 2.0 for SmartROC drill rigs. In addition to creating drill plans, the new software will also produce production and fleet management reports, including the ability to create reports to compare all SmartROC drill rigs in a fleet.

Data provided by ROC Manager 3.0 includes

  • Drilled versus planned holes
  • Accumulated hours for engine, percussion and drilled meters, among other data
  • Average penetration rate
  • Meters per engine hour
  • Percussion time by engine time
  • Operator access to the latest production planning

The software is composed of four primary integrated functions: (1) Creating work orders and drill plans; (2) presentation and analysis of log files; (3) monitoring of work performed by rigs; (4) a report generator.

The drill plan created in the office by ROC Manager 3.0 may be transferred to the rig by USB device or wirelessly via Rig Remote Access (RRA). Log files may be transmitted from the rig to the office in the same manner.
