The Krupp HM 1000 Eco hydraulic breaker hammer consists of several essential components, including a hydraulic cylinder, piston, accumulator, valve system, and tool (moil or chisel).
The hydraulic cylinder provides the necessary force to drive the piston, which, in turn, transfers the impact energy to the tool. The accumulator stores hydraulic energy, allowing the breaker to deliver high impact blows consistently.
The hydraulic breaker hammer operates based on the principle of hydraulic power. It attaches to the carrier machine, such as an excavator or skid-steer loader, through the hydraulic system. When the hydraulic oil is pumped into the breaker's cylinder, it forces the piston to move rapidly, compressing the gas in the accumulator. As the gas pressure reaches its maximum, it releases, driving the piston forward, and causing the tool to strike the target material with a high impact force.
Weight: The HM 1000 Eco typically weighs around 1000 kg (2200 lbs), making it suitable for medium to large-scale construction projects.
Operating Pressure: It operates at a hydraulic pressure of approximately 160-180 bar (2300-2600 psi), depending on the carrier machine's capabilities.
Impact Energy Class: The breaker falls into the medium-sized impact energy class, offering a suitable balance of power and versatility.
Blows per Minute (BPM): The HM 1000 Eco delivers around 400-850 blows per minute, depending on the hydraulic flow rate.
