Breaker Technology (BTI) has serviced the mining, construction, demolition and aggregate industries for over fifty years. Founded in 1958, BTI is proud of their reputation for performance, experience and product support. BTI found 2010 to be one of the most challenging years in its fifty-two year history. The US demand for construction, demolition and aggregate equipment was weak overall.

The slower times were used to develop new products. BTI now offers two series of Hydraulic Breakers ranging from 400 to 16,000 ft/lb in the BX and BXR Series. These hammers represent BTI's years of expertise in innovative, robust and cost-effective design.

BTI, the world leader in Rockbreaker Systems, added an additional system to its extensive product offering. The new MRHT Pedestal Rockbreaker System is a heavy system incorporating a strong turntable bearing for 330 degrees of swing rotation. MRHT incorporates the superior strength to weight ratio that exists in the four plate, excavator quality construction of our MRH Series with slightly greater lifting capacity, ideal for large jaw plants and smaller gyratory crushers.

BTI has developed a new mobile Rockbreaker, for the mobile market. The QB 400 incorporates a QS Scaler chassis with a TT Series boom, the result is a rugged, mobile vehicle capable of handling a 10,000 ft/lb. Hydraulic Breaker, with tram speeds two to three times that of a conventional tracked excavator. The QB 400 offers superior mobile rock breaking productivity.

The last few months of 2010 experienced a high demand for BTI mining equipment in the International Market. Rockbreakers, scalers, anfo loaders and multi-purpose vehicle cassettes are a few of the high demand products.

BTI's BioEnergy Division is developing a wood pelletizer capable of producing 4-5 tons per hour. The PP5Pelletizer will marry well with other Astec products and meet the demands of the renewable fuel industry.
