Swiss-based, Fractum GmbH’s new gravity-impact breaker is a cost-effective solution to secondary breaking. The breaker needs to be mounted on a conventional excavator of at least 40 tons deadweight. This allows the breaker to be rapidly deployed to various areas of a quarry to carry out a range of breaking work. The breaker uses the hydraulic power that would normally activate the excavator bucket or other tools. While this tool is being used, the excavator engine needs to operate at the maximum of a fast idle. Operating under low load greatly reduces noise, making it suitable for use in urban environments.
