Right Tool is a key to productivity

Choosing the right tool for the job will have a major impact upon the power and productivity of your rockbreaker. First, it is vital to determine if the job is an “impact” or “penetrative” breaking application. Rammer has several tool models designed with “job specific” work requirements, providing excellent value, long life and maximum performance.

Impact Applications

In “impact” applications, it is important to identify the level of abrasive characteristics in the material. Rammer Super Blunt tools provide excellent wear characteristic and long life in applications involving highly abrasive oversize materials, for example high silica content boulders.

Penetrative Applications

Primary breaking of hard rock will require Hard rock chisel tool. This tool is geometrically designed for the highest production possible and a long service life.

Penetrative applications such as breaking of limestone and non-reinforced concrete require Limestone chisel tool which is designed specifically for faster penetration while reducing the idle blow effects found in soft material applications.

Higher Production and Lower Operating Costs

Correctly matching the right tool to the job application is critical to achieving the highest level of production with lowest possible operating costs.

Right Tool - Right Job

Genuine Rammer parts and tools have superior durability due to correct raw materials and specialized in-house heat treatment. The dimensions are always correct and there is right tool for every application as the tools are designed together with the rockbreakers.

Sandvik/Rammer's investments in a research program, innovative tool designs and world wide test programs have resulted in tools with improved wear characteristics and greater durability and therefore offering longer service life and better value for our customers. Several of the new tools have been designed with job specific requirements in mind. 

 
Standard Chisel Tool

The Standard Chisel Tool is design to suply the breaking means to tackle hard rock and re-enforced concrete.

  • For nonabrasive but tough rock or concrete
  • For material which has low or medium penetration rate

Hard Rock Chisel Tool

When the task at hand is harder than most tools are designed to handle, the Hard Rock Chisel is the #1 choice to make short work of abrasive rocks.

  • Hard and abrasive rock with fractures
  • For application where drilling and blasting cannot be used
  • Materials with low penetration rate

Pyramid Point Tool

The Pyramid Tool makes light work out of breaking nonabrasive materials of all strengths. Nonabrasive materials which allow a high penetration rate, especially concrete, are short work for the Pyramid tool.

  • Soft, nonabrasive and tough rock and especially concrete
  • Materials requiring high penetration rate
  • Where chisels have excessive retaining
    pin groove wear

Tool Maintenance

Rockbreaker tool is a wear part and tool consumption is one of the key contributors to wear part costs. But with thorough and regular tool maintenance, you can reduce those costs. Download the Parts and Tools brochure for tool analysis on page 17.

When operator is carrying out the tool maintenance, ensure proper safety clothes are worn and the tool is not touched immediately after the rockbreaker has been working as it is extremely hot.  

Tool Lubrication and correct greasing practice

Rockbreaker tool is subject to extreme wear that requires proper lubrication and care to achieve a long, trouble free life. Tool lubricant must have properties to withstand high temperature and extreme pressure. We supply special tool lubricants and automatic tool lubrication systems which have been especially designed to work with Rammer products.

The greasing practice depends on application and operating method. Tool grease consumption is higher in applications where the tool is penetrating and movements are longer than in impact breaking applications where the tool is steadily against thrust ring. Greasing should be increased in dusty applications.

You can find instructions for correct greasing practices from the operator’s manual, although the operator should adjust suitable practice for the application on a daily basis. The proper procedure is reached when wet grease is visible about the length equal to tool diameter on the tool just beneath the housing bottom plate.

Tool sharpening

Genuine Rammer tools can be reconditioned by milling or turning machine and plaining. When sharpening the tool it is important that the working temperature does not exceed 200°. Never use gas cutting tools as they soften the tool and causes micro-cracks that may lead to breakages. Ask us about the same day chisel sharpening service.

Automatic lubrication systems - RamLube I, RamLube II and RamLube III 

Automatic lubrication system designed to ensures a long, trouble-free life specifically for hydraulic rockbreakers.

Ramlube I kit can be used for lubricating all the rockbreaker tools. Small rockbreakers might need an electronic timer to limit the amount of grease. Big rockbreakers and breakers with two greasing points need, in some cases, another pump element.

The pump unit is electrically operated. The high operation pressure, 300 bar max. makes it possible to use greases up to NLGI 2-class.

Ramlube II greasing device can be installed on all Rammer Large Range rockbreakers. The kit consists of a greasing device, hoses and a mounting plate tailored for different rockbreaker models.

The greasing device is operated by the hydraulic pressure from the rockbreakers's pressure fitting. The unit is installed to the rockbreaker's housing with a mounting plate and no external electric cables or hydraulic hoses are needed. Ramlube II contains a replaceable 500-gram grease cartridge.

Ramlube III is an integrated lubrication device mounted inside the rockbreaker’s housing on the power cell, it provides maximum lubrication whilst only using minimum grease amount, prolonging the tool and bushing life. The location of Ramlube III also provides full protection of moisture and dust.

Ramona

The Ramona monitoring analyzer is used to analyze rockbreaker operation and performance. It utilises advanced electronics within the rockbreaker hydraulic system to deliver up-to-the-minute condition and performance data to the operator, identifying abnormalities in operating conditions and pre-empting potential failures before they occur.The system also stores statistical information for further analysis and warns and guides the operator for better operating habits.

By monitoring hydraulic oil temperature, rockbreaker operating pressure and blow frequency, Ramona can also be connected to our systems to inform us of rockbreaker malfunctions and impending problems.

Ramona instrumentation consists of the analysis unit, transmitter and Ramcom software and can be accessed by modem via SMS text messaging, computer or direct cable connection.

Ramair

The Ramair air flush system is designed to prevent dirt from entering the rockbreaker housing and keep the tool grease flowing towards the lower tool bushing.

It's most beneficial in applications where the material is highly abrasive and dusty. Ramair is also recommended for applications where the rockbreaker working position is horizontal or above, such as tunneling and scaling applications.
