Canadian Concrete Expo Blog: 6 Pulverizers That Are Crushing It in the Marketplace


How do you break one of the toughest building materials in construction? Pulverizers.

“Concrete is a material that lasts a long time. The concrete in concrete structures often outlives the original use of the structure. That is why so many attachments have been created to the destruction of concrete,” says Stuart Galloway, President, 20/20 Show Productions, the producer of Canadian Concrete Expo. “Pulverizers use tremendous force and hard, sharp teeth to break concrete into smaller pieces.”


Here are six pulverizers that are crushing the concrete crushing market.

ShearForce Equipment’s SP30 Fixed Demolition Pulverizer

The SP30 is designed to be a reliable and powerful tool for secondary demolition and recycling of concrete. It powerfully crushes reinforced concrete with its wider jaw, exceptional closing force and short cycle times provides excellent productivity in concrete reduction and reinforced steel separation, claims the company. These pulverizers feature a speed boosting system for fast cycle times, a bolt-on replaceable one-piece solid tooth system, steel cutting blades in the throat with four usable sides, and a heavy-duty cylinder cover.

NPK’s Primary/Secondary Concrete Crushers

With the newly improved tooth configuration utilizing a high-profile center tooth and lower profile teeth on both sides of the movable jaw, NPK concrete pulverizers can be used for both primary and secondary crushing operations. Abrasion resistant, high strength, alloy steel teeth provide decreased wear and increased durability. They easily crush through reinforced concrete and cut through light steel structures, which allows material to be separated and recycled, and simultaneously, permits easier handling of material. Competitive cylinder systems need larger cylinders to equal the force developed by the more compact NPK intensifier system, claims the company. In addition, the “R” models come with full 360-degree power rotation for maximum versatility and all “A” models now utilize a bolt-on replaceable tooth plate on both sides of the jaw.
