Breaking of the crust can be done by the hydraulic hammer breaker. The hammer can reach positions that the wheel crust breaker can’t reach. It is ideal to create a hole in order to tap the liquid aluminium.
Hencon’s Hammer Crust Breakers are based on well proven designs and components. For decades these Vehicles are successfully in operation in Söderberg potrooms.
The hammer breaker is connected to a robust arm and can be controlled from within the ergonomic cabin. Once in position the force of the hammer will break the crust. Heat resisting bearings are used, to withstand the heat of the pot.
