To achieve this Ambuja Cement planned using both - Rotary drum Cutter from Erkat
and Rock-Breaker from Atlas Copco on the same machine - Komatsu PC1250. The task
was very challenging as the Cutters and Breaker work on different flow and pressure
ratings and had to fulfill requirement of - Komatsu, Erkat and Atlas Copco.
Ambuja Cement handed over this time bound job to Hydrotek Engineers to liaison with
the agencies, do the necessary modification in hydraulics, install and commission
the attachments. Hydrotek Engineers with inputs from all the agencies and support
from Mr.Vivekananda of Ambuja Cement finalized on the hydraulic circuit wherein
it was possible to operate the Cutter @ 1000lpm and 320 bar and the Rock-breaker
@ 450lpm and 200 bar on the same Excavator.
Hydrotek Engineers then managed all the hydraulic components to match the designed
circuit and installed the kit at Ambuja Cements, Darlaghat. Successful load trials
were taken and the Equipment was commissioned within the stipulated time frame.
This was the first time in the world that different attachments were installed on
This is a great achievement and Hydrotek Engineers thanks all the people involved
in making the project a grand success.
Hydrotek Engineers has designed and installed circuits for adaptation of various
attachments on the same machine. The adaptation is made simple and the operator
can select the attachment from the cabin. By operating the switch, automatically
the pressure and flow is set as per requirement of the attachment.
Hydrotek Engineers is the OEM supplier to many Rock-Breaker manufacturers which
includes design, supply and installation of kits. The hydraulics is designed for
setting flow and pressure on all the Excavators to meet specification of the Rock-Breaker.
