New machine for demolition of concrete
MEP Steel has developed a drop-hammer type breaker for demolition of concrete and other heavy materials and structures. It is a powerful machine also to break large stones, slag and even reinforced concrete. This application separates the steel bars and makes the pulverizing process so much faster and more efficient.
In particular, the machine is suitable for use in spaces where blasting is not possible. The breaker can be mounted on 45t excavators.
The machine is fitted with a bullet that is lifted hydraulically inside a tube and then dropped down for breaking the object. Lifting the bullet takes only a few seconds. There are different sizes of breakers, from 9t to 19.5t but they can all be mounted on the same 45t size excavator.
The MEP Breaker offers many advantages over the conventional breaking tools. It is a cost-efficient piece of machinery, because there is no need to invest in heavy equipment. It also decreases the stress to the boom and to the hydraulic system, since there are no beating elements. This way the carrier lasts longer and offers a higher resale value.
Furthermore, the system is constructed so that there are no hoses inside the tube, which results in no leaks of hydraulic oil. Also the working environment of the operator is optimal due to very low vibration and noise effects. This way the complaints from the outside audience are minimized.
By the customer for the customer
Originally, the breaker system was designed by a Finnish contractor to get a piece of machinery that would make certain demolition work more efficient. The contractor manufactured one breaker but because he was not interested in the manufacturing business, he contacted MEP Steel, who took it over and started to develop the system further.
The cooperation continues for the benefit of other contractors who are interested in investing in a cost-efficient and long-lasting demolition machine.
