Brokk introduces Pedestal Boom based on demolition robot technology
By Steve Ducker15 September 2021
Remote-controlled demolition robot specialist Brokk has introduced the Brokk Pedestal Boom, a compact, stationary breaker boom system for the aggregates industry.
Brokk said the new machine range allows producers to apply the power and precision of Brokk’s demolition robots to primary breaking tasks that feed mobile crushers, jaw crushers, gyratory crushers and grizzlies.
The unit can be operated with either the tethered remote or from a control room. Depending on network configuration, the machine can be manoeuvred from 2,000 m (6,500 ft) away or longer, using video monitoring and operation to increase safety and efficiency.
“Brokk saw an opportunity to give our customers a better solution for breaking oversize rock in crushing and grizzly applications,” said Martin Krupicka, president and CEO of Brokk Group.
“We have developed technology that is powerful, compact, flexible and easy to install.”
The Brokk Pedestal Boom is based on the proven arm system and power pack of Brokk’s demolition robots. The machine body is then mounted on a pedestal, rather than tracks. This allows the machine to be installed in a stationary position next to a crusher or any area where primary breaking is needed.
Model sizes for the range include the Brokk 200, Brokk 300, Brokk 500 and the Brokk 900 Pedestal Boom, which can produce 3050 J/Nm at a rate of 330 to680 blows per minute with the BHB 1500 breaker to power through even the toughest rock formations.
All systems feature Brokk’s SmartRemote technology.
