C-2 Spawned Page

The DARDA C-2 is the smallest DARDA splitting cylinder. The C-2 is suited for smaller projects such as side-walk and step removal, pipe-jacking, and landscape work. The small size of the splitter makes it ideal for close-quarters applications where small amounts of rock need to be removed. The cylinder can also be used for secondary splitting of boulders or ledge rock.

 

IMPORTANT: Splitters must be lubricated with ELCO LUBE-PASTE. Failure to do so will result in premature wear and tool failure.

C-9 Spawned Page

The DARDA C-9 is a medium sized DARDA splitting cylinder. The C-9 splitter is well suited for demolition of concrete, rock, and production work in sandstone formations. The cylinder is exceptionally good at the demolition of nonreinforced concrete, applications in confined spaces, demolition of slabs, and secondary splitting of rock. The cylinder is also best suited for underwater demolition due to its light weight and high power.

 

IMPORTANT: Splitters must be lubricated with ELCO LUBE-PASTE. Failure to do so will result in premature wear and tool failure.

C-12 Spawned Page

The DARDA C-12 is the largest handheld DARDA splitting cylinder. The C-12 is extremely well suited for the demolition of harder materials where high production rates are essential. This splitter is excellent at breaking reinforced concrete, hard bedrock and boulders, and for the production of granite blocks in the natural stone industry. These units can effectively remove blocks of rock that weigh in excess of 50 tons.

 

IMPORTANT: Splitters must be lubricated with ELCO LUBE-PASTE. Failure to do so will result in premature wear and tool failure.

C-20 Spawned Page

The DARDA C-20 is the largest DARDA splitting cylinder and is designed to be used in conjunction with a 5-7 ton excavator. The cylinder is mounted to the carrier using one of four different methods: chain, carrier, and two different types of rigid mounting configurations. The C-20 is extremely well suited for ledge work and larger trenches, and is effective at removing large blocks of rock.

Air-Powered HPU Spawned Page (02)

The Air-Powered Elco Hydraulic Power Unit consists of an air motor and complete power pack consisting of hydraulic pump, base plate, hydraulic reservoir, and Pressurematic valve. The air motor requires 50 to 80 CFM at 100 PSI. The air needs to be clean, dry, and lubricated. The Air-Powered Elco Hydraulic Power Unit is well suited for jobsites where large air compressors are present and readily accessible.

 

Conversion kits are offered for quickly changing between air, gas, and electric power sources.

Units are shipped dry. Oil capacity is 5 gallons. IMPORTANT: Splitters and hydraulic power units MUST use Shell Aero Fluid #4 or ExxonMobil Univis HVI 13.

 

 

 

 

 

Gas-Powered HPU Spawned Page (01)

The Gas-Powered Elco Hydraulic Power Unit consists of a Briggs & Stratton motor and complete power pack consisting of hydraulic pump, base plate, hydraulic reservoir, and Pressurematic valve. The Gas-Powered Elco Hydraulic Power Unit is well suited for remote jobsites where there is infrequent availability of large air compressors or generators.

 

Conversion kits are offered for quickly changing between air, gas, and electric power sources.

Units are shipped dry. Oil capacity is 5 gallons. IMPORTANT: Splitters and hydraulic power units MUST use Shell Aero Fluid #4 or ExxonMobil Univis HVI 13.

 

Electric-Powered HPU Spawned Page (03)

The Electric-Powered Elco Hydraulic Power Unit consists of a Parker Universal Type Motor and complete power pack consisting of hydraulic pump, base plate, hydraulic reservoir, and Pressurematic valve. The Electric-Powered Elco Hydraulic Power Unit is well suited for jobsites where reduced noise impact is required or where a steady power source is located. The electric motor can be run off a 5500-Watt generator. Elco also offers a 3-phase 220/440 volt electric motor on special request.

 

Conversion kits are offered for quickly changing between air, gas, and electric power sources.

Elco Accessories Spawned Page

  • Flowbar Manifold: Run up to five C-12, C-9, or C-2 splitters from one Elco Hydraulic Power Unit. A Flowbar Manifold is outfitted with quick disconnects that are mounted to an aluminum distribution block with up to five sets of 10-foot hoses. Flowbars can be ordered with 2, 3, 4, or 5 sets of lines. Each set of lines ordered will come with quick disconnects on one end so that the manifold can quickly be plumbed in-line with the hydraulic power unit.

 

Use of a Flowbar Manifold will not reduce output pressures or effective force delivered by the splitter units. Flowbar manifolds are used for high-production and high-precision work where all tools are installed along a line and used to create connecting breaks or break loose extremely large blocks of rock. The use of a Flowbar Manifold is recommended over multiple individual power units and splitters.

 

  • Elco Lubricant: Elco Lubricant is required for use of the splitters. Lubricant is packed in ½ and 1-pint cans and shipped in cases of 12.

 

  • Pressure Gauge and Shutoff Valve: The pressure gauge and shutoff valve is used to diagnose pump and complete unit operations. The unit consists of a ball valve, 10,000 PSI pressure gauge, and a set of quick disconnects so that the unit can be easily installed in-line with the splitter.
  • Hoses: Elco supplies special high-pressure supply and return hoses. These hoses are specially rated for use with Elco Hydraulic Power Units and Darda Hydraulic Splitters. Hoses can be ordered in 10-, 30-, and 50-foot lengths.

 

  • Quick Disconnect Sets: Elco supplies high-pressure quick disconnect sets for use in the complete units.

 

  • Basic Pump Rebuild: Elco International offers a pump-rebuild service for the Elco Hydraulic Power Unit so that money can be saved when pumps finally wear. This service allows customers to reduce operating costs.

 

Plugs and Feathers Spawned Page

  • Replacement Feathers
  • Enlarging Feathers: Enlarging feathers are a must when excavating large masses of rock or concrete. Enlarging feathers can quickly be installed in place of the normal feathers and allow a crack to be further opened. This extra distance allows large excavators or other equipment to engage the material. In reinforced concrete, this extra distance will provide enough room so that a cutting torch can be used to sever exposed rebar.
