New, long stroke pneumatic breakers from Atlas Copco - TEX 20PS/TEX 21PE


Today Atlas Copco has one of the world's most comprehensive ranges of pneumatic breakers, and is now extending the range with two more models - TEX 20PS and TEX 21PE. These are medium sized general purpose breakers. They have a longer piston stroke than other Atlas Copco models in the neighbouring weight classes, making them well suited for working in hard materials.

Weight and air consumption has been kept very low in these breakers. So has the noise level, which is even below the requirements stated in the European Noise Emission Directive (NED).” When developing the silencers for these breakers, we reached noise values that are even below the levels set out for the next phase of the Directive in 2006.” says Jan Ohlson, product line manager at Atlas Copco Construction Tools AB in Sweden.

Since their basic design concept has already been tested and proven under the Krupp brand during several years, the reliability and simple service of these breakers is ensured. “We are now introducing these breakers to a broader market. We have upgraded the design to be in line with the other breakers in the range. They will contribute positively to the wide product offering Atlas Copco has in this product area.” says Jan Ohlson.

The TEX 20/TEX 21 is available in four different versions. The TEX 20 has standard handles and the TEX 21 has vibration-dampening handles. Both models are available with a standard hexagonal shank or with a special round shank with a square collar, common in some European markets.
