Tunnel version of Epiroc SB hydraulic breakers features application-specific modifications to extend lifetime, minimize dust intake

Tunnel versions of Epiroc's SB breakers are suitable for excavators in the weight class from 4.5 to 13 tons (10,000 to 28,500 pounds) and standard underground scalers.
Tunnel versions of Epiroc's SB breakers are suitable for excavators in the weight class from 4.5 to 13 tons (10,000 to 28,500 pounds) and standard underground scalers.

The new SB 302 and SB 452 Tunnel versions of Epiroc's Solid Body breaker range provide application-specific modifications that extend equipment lifetime and reduce overall operating costs in underground applications. 

Piston lifetime in the advanced Tunnel version is extended by a new piston in stainless steel, while bushing seat wear is minimized by a press-fit, one-piece bushing locked by an additional pin. An exchangeable wear plate protects the hammer body and durability is enhanced by heavy-duty retainer bars and a locking pin. 

The special tunneling tool with a collar supporting a robust front shield and dust cover minimizes the dust intake when working on overhead areas. Two restrictors are available which enable the performance of the hydraulic breaker to be adjusted for either traditional scaling operations or for more challenging rock breaking jobs.

Together these new features add up to less wear, extended lifetime and lower overall operating costs in scaling, tunneling and underground mining applications.

The new Tunnel versions are suitable for excavators in the weight class from 4.5 to 13 tons (10,000 to 28,500 pounds) and standard underground scalers. Service weights are 315 kg (690 pounds) for the SB 302 and 450 kg (990 pounds) for the SB 452.
