The new Atlas Copco  XD-series claims to be the only one of its kind to be specifically designed for grizzly stations in underground mines and gyratory crushers in open pits.Mining & Quarrying

‘Unique’ pedestal booms from Atlas Copco

Atlas Copco has introduced what it claims is “a unique series of extreme duty pedestal boom systems for secondary rock breaking in mines and open pits”.

The new extreme duty series of pedestal boom systems from Atlas Copco claims to be the only system of its kind specifically designed for secondary rock breaking applications in mines and open pits.

Secondary rock breaking is a tough and sometimes hazardous task but the latest addition to the Atlas Copco range of extreme duty pedestal boom systems makes the job easier, safer and more efficient.

The new XD-series claims to be the only one of its kind to be specifically designed for grizzly stations in underground mines and gyratory crushers in open pits.

“Most other pedestal boom systems are developed for lighter duty applications and this often causes frequent breakdowns, low efficiency and unreliable access to spare parts when used on extreme duty applications like grizzlies underground”, says Thomas Müller, Business Line Manager at Atlas Copco’s Underground Rock Excavation division. “In contrast, the XD-series is the only system on the market that is specifically designed and manufactured for these applications.”

Müller explains that the XD-series has been entirely developed by Atlas Copco. Each component is carefully selected and tested, enabling each system to be adapted to the application for optimum performance and reliability.

Key components include the pedestal boom’s flexi-base, slew mechanism, cylinders and pin-locking system which are all sufficiently robust to withstand the rigours of the harsh rock breaking environment.

There are five systems in the series offering a horizontal reach from 2.7 m to 7 m and a breaker weight of 200 up to 2,200 kg.

Developed in response to strong demand for a more reliable extreme duty system, the XD-series is now available worldwide through the Atlas Copco organization alongside the company’s wide range of pedestal boom systems for light, medium and heavy duty applications.
