What Is A Rock Breaker?

A rock breaker, or “hammer”, is heavy machinery where a piston hammer pummels the surface of hard materials like concrete, asphalt, or stone. They are designed for the primary stage of the crushing of hard, brittle materials such as rock, ore, slag, and refractories. It is a common tool for mining and construction projects needing a fine aggregate mixture.

Hydraulic rock breakers are typically used as the first step in the reduction process because they can handle larger rocks than most other types of machines and break down tough to work with materials effortlessly. They have a compact design making them ideal for busy project sites and tight urban areas. The piston is aimed at the center of a massive rock and a series of changing oil pressures moves the hammer upward and downward to break materials.

Rock breakers have been used in mining and are most commonly used to break large pieces of concrete or settled rock materials for building.

How To Choose The Right Rock Breaker

When selecting a hydraulic rock breaker, it is important to consider the type of material to be crushed, the size of the feed and product, and the type of crusher.

It is important to choose a rock breaker that is large enough to handle the amount of material you will be processing. There are two main categories for the hammer – chisel hammer and blunt hammer – with further specializations to get a job done efficiently. Some rock breakers will also have a spade attachment to move crushed materials off the work site.
