Updated pedestal boom system offers more productivity in fractured rock applications


Montabert, a subsidiary of Komatsu Mining, and pedestal boom manufacturer Tramac have collaborated on a series of boom designs to improve productivity in the crushing circuit. 

If your quarrying business is looking for a pedestal boom systemwhether that be for a new crushing plant installation application or replacing an older boom system – then you need to look no further than the latest in boom system design, technology, and cost effective installation benefits from Montabert, in partnership with global pedestal boom manufacturer Tramac. 

When selecting boom systems, it is important to consider: 

  • Rock hardness and size, the expected duty cycle (number of rocks per hour) and physical size of chute or crusher.  
  • The type of applications, eg fixed crushing installation, grizzly, underground mine treatment or mobile crushing. 
  • If it meets horizontal and vertical reach and breaker size requirements. 
  • Control systems, such as advanced safety processors to be implemented, remote operation options and readiness to spare parts access.   

Montabert’s boom systems consist of quality robust designs that include a low profile base incorporating a shaped plate steel that provides an extremely strong foundation to fit any platform mounting requirement.  Heavyduty cylinders with high strength steel, welded construction and aligned bushing ensure a long product life, and therefore maintenance costs savings with ongoing wear and tear. 

Modern technology is essential in pedestal boom systems to enable safe operating practices. This can be achieved through utilisation of line of site remote control, collision avoidance systems, full automation, and teleremote operation with the goal in mind to eliminate exposure to site personnel.  

Montabert has long specialised in the design, production and marketing of hydraulic demolition and drilling equipment for civil works, mining and quarrying applications. The company has an impressive history in the field of breakers and drills and its commitment to technical excellence has placed it consistently in the top three manufacturing firms globally in the hydraulic business.   

Montabert’s success is driven by the success of its customers. The organisation has long been involved in constant innovation and product development in breakers, including its worldrenowned, patented variable speed technology. The adoption of this type of knowhow, along with the breaker’s lower input power requirement and industryrecognised energy recovery and regulation system, results in better percussion efficiency and greater hydraulic effectiveness.  Overall, higher output power results in greater productivity in fractured and semifractured rock
