BTI’ breakers are well known for underground and mining applications, but also have growing applications in civil construction and demolition.
The BTI breaker can be fitted, as an attachment onto a suitable hydraulic carrier – from excavators and mini-excavators to TLBs, skid steers and loaders. There are two ranges of BTI breakers – each offering different energy ratings and designed for use on different size carriers. The CX/BX Hydraulic Breaker series includes eight models ranging from an energy rating of 550 Joules for the CX4 to 5 400 Joules for the BX40. They can be fitted onto smaller equipment – carriers up to 20 tons.
The larger BXR Series includes 7 models ranging from an energy class for the BXR50 of 6 800 Joules to the mighty BXR185 with an energy class of 25 100 Joules. This series is suitable for 20 – 120-ton carriers.
Benefits & Features
The machines boast a host of features that enhance speed and efficiency for construction site applications like foundations, trenching and demolition.
A BTI unique feature on the hydraulic breakers is the narrow nose design which enhances visibility as well as minimal over-breaking in trenching applications. The oversized, full length, oval retainer pins on the BX10 through BXR160 have excellent resistance to blank fires and expansive load transfer area to front head. The large tool diameters deliver longer life and superior transmission of impact energy.
All BTI hydraulic breakers feature a high strength alloy plate steel construction with abrasion resistant plating which allows for continuous duty in harsh environments. The noise dampening material used throughout the breaker eliminates metal-to-metal contact, reducing wear and noise.
Every BTI breaker is fitted with top and bottom isolators to absorb recoil energy. The cryogenically enhanced, heat treated alloy pistons and precise tolerances deliver high breaker efficiencies. The short length, large diameter tie rods with integral vibration dampeners provide an exceptionally strong structure.
The remote air breather is positioned above the main control valve on the BX10 through BXR160 models, which provides easy access and clean air intake and a connection for underwater operation when required.
On the BX10 through BXR160 there are remote grease line connection and hydraulic porting on the power cells that allow for easy accessibility for use with carrier or breaker mounted greasing systems.
