Explaining about its feature, Sandvik's Vice President for Business Development Andres Kjellberg informed, "these breakers have been designed to provide simplest and cost-effective solutions to our customers. These products are easy to maintain, utilize fewer working parts for reduced maintenance, fixed-blow energy concept, which maintains high-blow energy regardless of carrier size or oil flow etc. which translates in to lower owning and operating cost."
To the query raised why the products are being highlighted as simplicity range, Raghavan Ramaswamy, Customer Segment Manager, West Asia said "when we say 'simplicity' it does not mean lack of sophistication; the Basic Range contains such advance features as sealed nitrogen accumulator, which protects the carriers hydraulic pump during operation. It incorporates a long and heavy piston designed to align perfectly with a genuine Sandvik tool, this ensures optimum impact energy transfer, with less recoil for reduced carrier wear."
Elaborating the main technological difference between Basic and Premium line he informed that the Basic range of breakers feature a piston type accumulator whereas Premium models have membrane accumulators and advanced automation. But there is no big difference in the productivity.
