New bucket crushers improve performance

Atlas Copco’s new generation of BC bucket crushers offers up to 80% more output than previous models. High resistance to wear and fatigue, improved reliability and much lower maintenance requirements make the new BC bucket crusher one of the best pieces of equipment in its class.

Designed for carriers from 22-38 tonnes, the crushers are available in two versions. The robust BC 2500 and BC 3700 bucket crushers are a smart choice for “small” demolition, recycling and road construction applications where they are often an efficient alternative to a mobile jaw crusher. Capable of crushing up to 110 tons/hour, they also offer a high level of flexibility in terms of operating reach, depending on the mobility of the carrier.

The unique circular crushing cycle gives the new BC bucket crushers unmatched performance with up to 80% more output than previous models!

The advanced twin-drive system comprises two powerful hydraulic motors. The sturdy timing belt is designed for long service life and the system provides huge torque right from the start. Full loading capacity can be used without risk of blockages and the absence of slippage during start-up ensures constant power transmission and no extra load on the bearings. The internally mounted drive system allows a narrower shape without compromising loading capacity making the BC range more versatile and reliable.

Two key features on the new BC bucket crusher improve productivity. The automatic anti-lock mechanism gives continuous repositioning of the material, ensuring that even larger pieces of debris 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 thus easily remove the blockage.

When adjusting the crushing size (granulometry) on the new BC bucket crushers, intuitive functionality eliminates the need for previous experience or knowledge. The user can quickly and easily adjust the required jaw outlet correctly without any special tools.

All types of inert material, including asphalt, stone and concrete debris, mine and quarry material, can be crushed and re-used on-site using a rig-mounted BC bucket crusher. Crushed material can be re-used directly or sold to third parties. This requires less mechanical equipment, lower transportation and dumpsite costs and only one operator who handles both the demolition attachment and the bucket crusher.
