Atlas Copco RTex

We have used scientific methods to improve efficiency and ergonomics in breaking equipment for 60 years. The RTEX is the nexus of our efforts.

First of all, the RTEX is 25% lighter, yet it has more breaking power. Secondly, it uses 50% less air than a conventional breaker. And thirdly, RTEX has stiff handles with vibration values comparable to machines with flexible anti-vibration handles. These advantages mean you can save big chunks of both money and time.

Thanks to its unique piston design, the RTEX doubles the interaction time compared to ordinary breakers. That means you can use an RTEX breaker and still match the breaking power of a much heavier breaker. The efficient stroke mechanism radically lowers energy consumption. A comparable TEX uses 34 litres of air per second.

A TEX 220 uses 29 litres. The RTEX only use 18 litres per second! That saves you money on fuel by allowing you to downsize on the compressor or run several breakers on the existing equipment.

Precision breaking

The improved SOFSTART™ system helps you slowly release the energy of the breaker as it’s needed. It gives you perfect control when making crucial first cuts.

Double up!

RTEX is so clever it can cut your air consumption by half. Get a smaller compressor or run two on one. Either way you save money.

Less vibration at the source

The counter force when the piston moves downwards is constant due to the Constant Pressure Chamber. This minimises the vibration the operator is exposed to. In an ordinary breaker the pressure above and below the piston is constantly shifting in both places. This adds to machine vibrations.

Piston design and interaction time

The long piston design gives more interaction time than a shorter, conventional piston. And with more interaction time for each blow, the power produced with the RTEX is more effective for breaking concrete.

Air cushions protect you

Air cushions, above and below the piston, protect both you and the RTEX during operation. As the piston reaches its end position air cushions are gradually activated.

Less weight and vibration

The RHEX-chisel is specially designed for the RTEX. It maximises the power from the piston to the ground and it’s also lighter than a conventional chisel, which makes handling easier. The concave design facilitates transport of broken material in order to increase effectiveness, since broken material acts as a dampener. The design also reduces the risk of jamming.
