Depending on the model, our impact breakers are developed to efficiently crush oversized boulders weighing over 150 tons. Fractum’s breaking solutions are able to fragment hard material such as Bauxite, Granite, and Basalt rocks in a mere few strokes. The harder the rock, the easier it is for our breakers to do their job. This significantly improves productivity levels at opencast mines and quarries.
Our free-fall breaking technology allows for efficient, safe, and cost-effective processing of materials: our impact breakers can be taken directly to where they are needed. This eradicate the need for secondary blasting equipment. Other advantages of our mining and quarrying breakers include low wear and tear, increased user friendliness, and precise flexibility.
Low Wear and Tear
The wear and tear of traditional mining and quarrying equipment tends to be high, particularly when chisel operated hammers are being used. The chisel, which penetrates hard rock materials, causes excessive vibration which is transferred back to the excavator. This makes the excavator vulnerable to damage and shortens the life time.
Due to the traditional chisel-based system’s technique of penetrating the material, the wear on the chisel is considerable as well. This is particularly the case when the rock contains a high amount of abrasive substance. Further, the chisel-based systems produces a high amount of fly rock that not only results in material damage, but is also a serious safety risk.
Fractum’s impact breakers work with gravity, a principle that minimises the excavator’s vibration to an absolute minimum. This dramatically extends the service life of our breakers, which do not penetrate the material, and saves you money on maintenance and repairs. Eliminating the penetration of material provides a long service life of the hammer tip as well. Due to the design of the Fractum Breaker, the amount of fly rock is minimized, which enhances safety.
Save on primary blasting
Mining and quarrying companies are often confined to closely spaced blasting patterns to break the bed rock into pieces small enough to fit the crushers.
Fractum has developed breakers that make it possible to deal with oversized rocks straight away. Due to the design and use of technology, machines equipped with Fractum breakers won’t clog up with large boulders during primary crushing. Our solutions have the capability to quickly and efficiently break massive boulders of over 150 tons. This means that quarrying and mining companies which are using our breakers are no longer tasked with secondary breaking processes during primary crushing. This saves time and money and increases productivity and safety on site.
Quarries usually pile up and store large boulders, to break them at a later stage using secondary blasting or traditional chisel based equipment.
A Fractum breaker combined with a quick coupler enables a single operator to handle any stockpile of large boulders straight away. As a result of our technology, just one operator can easily switch from the breaking function to the grapple. This improves cost effectiveness and productivity.
No Secondary Blasting
Fractum’s rock breakers have the reputation of being effective, efficient, and precise. Our high capacity solutions have an impact power ranging from 80,000 J to 300,000 J. This allows for the fragmentation of the hardest rock material in just a few strokes, eliminating the need for secondary blasting.
Fractum impact breakers are designed in such a way that they allow the operator to work very precisely to avoid fly rock. This helps quarry and mine managers to significantly increase the breaking capacity on site while operating the hammer alongside other machines.
Avoiding the danger of fly rock makes the Fractum breaker much safer to use than the chisel operated system or the drop ball. This increases safety in the work environment for the workers, while using the breaker will also decrease material damages to windows etc.
