Caterpillar?s new generation of primary and secondary Pulverisers added six new Pulverisers to deliver high performance concrete demolition
It feature industry-leading technology to deliver up to 52% faster cycle times, producing more tons-per-litre of fuel burned. The new design is built around the same reliable industry-leading SpeedBooster technology found in Cat Multi-Processors. This feature quickly closes the jaw when there is no load. When the jaw comes into contact with material, the SpeedBooster hydraulic valve automatically switches to power mode for maximum power, quickly shattering concrete. The new Cat Pulveriser line includes three new rotatable primary models: P318, P324 and P332, which feature 360-degree rotation, and three new fixed secondary models: P218, P224 and P232. Both pulveriser series are designed to fit 18- to 50-tonne machines.
New Cat Primary Pulverisers balance speed and power by offering up to 52% faster cycle times and 21% higher force than the previous models. Bidirectional 360-degree rotation for the P300 series models positions the jaw to grab material from any angle for producing material properly sized for further processing. Integral rebar knives quickly shear through pipes, rebar and other embedded materials to improve demolition efficiency.
Cat Secondary Pulverisers deliver up to 44% faster cycle times and up to 20% better force in concrete demolition, resulting in up to 15% greater performance in secondary material processing applications. Wide jaw openings allow operators to grab more material from any angle, increasing processing speed and improving overall material throughput.
Delivering the production, reliability, durability and value expected from Cat products, both new pulveriser series feature bolt-on wear components that can be quickly replaced in the field with no hard-face welding required for maintenance, so the pulverisers spend more time working. Increasing reliability and longevity, all hydraulic components are protected inside a housing with a bolt-on removable panel that provides complete access for servicing.
Capable of working on a range of excavators, these new pulverisers are designed to increase efficiency when powered by Cat hydraulic excavators.
