Our Principles: What Makes Us the Best in the Rock & Concrete Breaking Business

by | Apr 2, 2024 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

What do we break?

We break rock, boulder, and concrete – and we love doing it! Rock and concrete are hard, solid substances that respond with the same characteristics when breaking, crushing, or cutting them.

They both have a variance in the hardness of the material. Rock type and hardness can be measured by the MOHS scale. Concrete can be measured by the MPA compressive strength factoring in any amount of rebar.

How do we break things?

Breaking either material requires a force greater than the hardness of the material you are breaking.

Compressive strength is used with mechanical means like jackhammers or hydraulic hammers.

Tensile strength is used with drilling and splitting or blasting. Both rock and concrete break much easier using its tensile strength since they do not have as much resistance.
