At its core, the HB 2500 features a hydraulic system that converts hydraulic energy from the carrier machine (e.g., excavator or backhoe loader) into powerful percussive blows.
These blows are delivered to the working tool, also known as the chisel or moil, which is the business end of the breaker responsible for breaking the material.
The HB 2500 hydraulic breaker boasts several key features that contribute to its efficiency and reliability:
Impact Energy: One of the critical specifications of the HB 2500 is its impact energy, measured in joules or foot-pounds. The higher the impact energy, the greater the force delivered to the material, allowing for faster and more effective breaking.
Operating Weight: The operating weight of the hydraulic breaker is a crucial factor in determining its compatibility with different carrier machines. The HB 2500 is designed to work optimally with a range of carriers, providing versatility in construction sites.
Power Booster: Some models of the HB 2500 come equipped with a Power Booster system. This feature optimizes the hydraulic flow and pressure, enhancing the breaker's performance and efficiency during operation.
AutoControl: The AutoControl feature automatically adjusts the impact energy and frequency based on the hardness of the material being broken.
This intelligent system ensures optimal performance while reducing unnecessary wear and tear.
Dust Suppression: Many HB 2500 hammers have an integrated dust suppression system, helping to mitigate dust and debris during operation. This feature not only improves visibility for the operator but also promotes a safer working environment.
VibroSilenced: The VibroSilenced technology in the HB 2500 reduces vibration levels, resulting in less strain on the carrier machine and operator, as well as a quieter working environment.
Serviceability: Atlas Copco has designed the HB 2500 with easy and quick maintenance in mind. Access to essential components and service points is streamlined, minimizing downtime and ensuring maximum productivity.
AutoStart: The AutoStart feature enables the breaker to automatically start when the carrier machine engages its hydraulic system, saving time and effort during setup.
Energy Recovery System (ERS): The ERS in certain models allows the breaker to reuse recoil energy, improving overall efficiency and reducing fuel consumption.
