What's New In Plant & Equipment
Small Range EC hydraulic breakers
Atlas Copco has expanded its Essential Case-Mounted (EC) range of hydraulic breaker attachments by adding five Small Range breakers to the lineup that are small enough to fit in limited-access work environments, such as pipe trenches.
The new, Small Range breaker attachments - the EC 40 T, EC 50 T, EC 60 T, EC 70 T and EC 80 T are designed for small-scale construction and demolition using 1- to 12 t carriers.
The EC breaker attachments feature Atlas Copco’s box-style mounting systems, which eliminate the need for removing external fasteners to access components, such as wear bushings and seals, for faster maintenance.
Operators can use the breakers in noise- and vibration-restricted worksites because of Atlas Copco’s exclusive VibroSilenced Plus systems. These systems isolate percussion mechanisms from breaker boxes with polyurethane damping and seal all attachment openings to minimize noise and vibrations.
The breakers have service weights as low as 95 kg (209 lbsand generate impact rates as high as 1,600 bpm to deliver effective impact energy to the breaking surface. With their high power-to-weight
atios, can be used demanding applications such as demolition, earthwork, quarrying and trenching.
EC breakers ensure smooth operation through integrated features such as nitrogen-gas assist. The nitrogen piston accumulator works with the hydraulic oil to accelerate the piston to deliver consistently high-impact energy.
SLD Add NC series Pumps
SLD Pumps and Power, a division of Carrier Rental Systems (UK) Limited , has announced the introduction of new high-efficiency technology introduced to the Godwin NC series pumps.
This new product combines the proven reliability of the familiar Godwin Dri-Prime portable pumps, available for rental through SLD, with high efficiency self-cleaning technology that is being added to the Godwin NC Series.
Wastewater pumping applications can be extremely demanding and clogging can result in increased energy/fuel costs and sometimes unplanned maintenance incidents. Self-cleaning technology, such as this, decreases utilization time and adds to a pump’s reliability.
The NC Series pumps are equipped for standalone operation and do not require a generator. Diesel and electric plug-in versions are both available for hire via SLD. They are suitable for emergency, planned or permanent installation. Reduced labour costs are the consequence of the automatic self-priming venturi priming system of the Dri-Prime pump.
