Quiet Rock Splitter
Brokk introduced the C20 Rock Splitter.
Manufactured by Darda, it is a safe and
quiet alternative to explosives and hydraulic
breakers, the company reported.
The C20 Rock Splitter quickly breaks large boulders and solid rock in mining
and shaft sinking applications as well as
cross passage work in tunneling. Users
drill a 3-in.-diameter hole into the rock
with a separate attachment before inserting
the splitter. The attachment expands
with as much as 1,800 tons of force,
splitting the rock.
The C20 Rock Splitter comes in four
models: two vertical options ranging from
64 in. to 72 in. long; as well as two horizontal
options, from 70 in. to 83 in. long.
