Chicago Pneumatic “High Back Pressure” Breakers
April 25, 2012

Chicago Pneumatic’s High Back Pressure (HBP) breakers are designed to accept the higher return pressure that is found on skid steers. HBP breakers work perfectly from the auxiliary output of most skid steers when used in conjunction with an oil flow divider. The oil flow divider is necessary to ensure that the correct oil flow and pressure is sent to the breaker at all times. This combination maximizes flexibility and optimal equipment utilization. The HBP Breakers will also work on a standard power pack providing the user with additional location flexibility. Able to accept up to 515 psi (35 bar) of back pressure — standard breakers accept 147-220 psi (10-15 bar)— their high pressure tolerance also permits the use of much longer hoses on job sites where space and access can be an issue.
