During the National Demolition Association's Demolition Live event in Aurora, Colorado in March 2019, demolition contractors and operators had the opportunity to test out a variety of demolition attachments for excavators including BTI's MCP-IT1000. BTI's hydraulic pulverizer shined and operator's were impressed with its wide jaw, power and fast cycle times that power productivity for large-scale jobs.
Processing demolition debris is hard on equipment, so it’s important to have attachments that stand up to the challenge. BTI Senior Regional Manager Tom Witt said the MCP1000-IT pulverizer for large materials is the perfect tool to ensure maximum production and little downtime.
“The MCP1000 reduces oversize material down to about 10-inch minus,” said Witt. “It’s ideal for handling debris from big demolition projects, such as taking down a building or removing a bridge.”
BTI builds the MCP1000, and other pulverizers in its MCP-IT line, with a tough and compact structure made of high-quality, wear-resistant materials. The mouth’s profile is reinforced for high resistance to wear as well as maximum material production.
Strategically placed teeth provide fast fragmentation and separation of rebar from concrete. A speed valve alternates power and speed, depending on load. The opening of the fixed body is designed to make unloading materials easier, while maintaining the performance of the attachment.
“The MCP1000-IT is designed for 35- to 45-ton excavators, so it’s a fairly large unit that delivers more than 434,000 pounds of cylinder output force,” said Northwest Regional Manager Dean Hubble. “Like all of our MCP models, it offers fast cycle times and ease of maintenance for maximum uptime and production.”
EASY TEETH SWAP OUTS
Each MCP-IT model has a blade for cutting rebar that can be turned for greater usage. Jaws were designed with long-lasting, easily replaceable teeth. Hubble noted that competitive pulverizers generally need to have teeth rebuilt every 40 to 50 hours, while BTI’s typically last twice that long, and depending on material and operation, can go up to 250 hours.
“Most competitive models have fixed teeth that need to be re-built on the machines when they wear,” said Hubble. “Ours can be swapped out by simply unbolting and removing the top plate and putting on a new plate with a set of teeth. The worn teeth can then be built back up in the weld shop, while the operator continues processing material.”
