Utilicor ProCor Coring Drums
Available in diameters 12", 18" and 24", Utilicor's custom made professional grade ProCor coring drums are designed to mount to Utilicor's "A" Flange Drive Adaptor, allowing for the use of an integrated pilot shaft and center cutter bit assembly.
Segments on these core drums have been custom designed to achieve extended drum life, and are designed to cut through both asphalt and concrete sub straights.
User should expect between 60 - 100 core cuts per coring drum.
All drums are manufactured to Utilicor's standard 22" depth, and come equipped with top mounted push holes to aid in removal of stuck cores.
Custom sizes and segment configuration available on request.
Part #’s CD-12, CD-18, CD-24
Designed by Utilicor, the Utilicor Core Puller (CP-PULLER) allows for quick, safe and efficient removal and reinstatement of cores that utilize a 2 3/8" center pilot hole through the cut core.
A specially designed 2 3/8" rubber stopper is used to expand inside the pilot hole in the core, and creates a super strong connection to the core - allowing for a safe ergonomically correct lift of the core.
A top mounted eye hook allows for the insertion of a lifting bar to spread the weight of the core between two workers. For heavier cores, the eye hook can be attached to a hoist or crane device.
Don’t even think of trying to reinstate a core properly without this core puller tool. An essential tool for every keyhole tool box.
A-Flange Drive Adaptor
Utilicor’s A-Flange Drive Adaptor allows for the center pilot shaft to connect to the core drum as well as the pillow block/water swivel assembly. Internally ported with two water access holes, the drive adaptor is required to allow both the core and the center pilot hole to be cut simultaneously. Both top and bottom treading are 1 ¼" x 7 and fit standard water swivels commonly available on most coring equipment.
Part # CP-AFLANGE
Pilot Shaft with Bi-Cone Bit
Utilicor’s unique keyhole cutting process utilizes a center pilot bit with either a 2 3/8 " steel toothed bi cone rock bit (seen here) or 2 3/8" carbide toothed center bit to cut an access hole through the entire depth of the cut core. This allows Utilicor’s core puller to be inserted and the core to be safely removed from the hole. Most importantly the center pilot hole aids in the process of properly reinstating the core back into the roadway.
Part # CP-SHAFT
2 3/8" Bi-Cone Roller Bit
Designed for rock drilling industry, the Bi Cone bit attaches to the bottom of the center pilot shaft and allows for a quick simultaneous pilot hole to be cut while the core is cut.
Steel toothed roller cones essentially pulverize both asphalt and harder concrete sub straights.
Part # CP-BC
2 3/8" Carbide Center Bit:
The 2 3/8" diameter carbide toothed center pilot bit is a great alternative to the bi-cone roller bit seen above. Carbide teeth smoothly and efficiently cut through both asphalt and concrete roadways and concrete sidewalks.
Part # CP-TT
Utilicor's road plates, which have been specifically designed to precisely fit 12", 18" and 24" cored holes, are a proven way to increase productivity, and ease scheduling concerns.
Utilicor’s road plates are made from 1/4" checker plated steel (painted safety yellow), with a 4" deep collar that fits snugly down into the roadway, securing the road plate and eliminating the need to bring heavy and awkward construction road plates onto the job site for temporary road openings.
Lockable versions are available by special order.
Part #'s AC-RP12, AC-RP18, AC-RP24
In colder climates it is necessary to introduce heat to the process of core reinstatement, and the Utilicor Core Heater is designed to do just this. The Utilicor Core Heater consists of three parts: (1) a surface mounted core hole heat baffle; (2) a core heater drum or hood; and (3) a 35,000 BTU, portable, forced air propane heater.
The core heater is fabricated from 11-22 gauge-galvanized steel. The octagonal surface mounted core hole baffle, by which the heated air is directed down into the hole, is 23" in diameter and stands approximately 7" above the surface. It has a 4" square perforated internal baffle that projects 3" below the surface and directs the hot air down into the hole. Once this surface unit is positioned over the hole, the core is lifted on to the top of the unit, where it is supported by four steel cross members.
The cylindrical (12 sided) dome or heater hood, approximately 18" high and 21" in diameter with handles and a mechanical vent in the top, is then placed on top of the base, completely enclosing the core. The output port of the forced air heater is then connected to the intake collar of the core-hole baffle and switched on. This allows super-heated air to be blown directly downward into the hole through the 4" square aperture or baffle. (Note: if desired, the propane-heater can be removed up to 10 - 12 feet away and connected remotely to the core heater by means of a high-temperature hose.)
he super-heated air circulates in the hole and reflects off the bottom traveling up the sides of the hole and into the upper chamber formed by the dome, where it circulates around the core and through the pilot hole, heating the bottom and sides of the extracted core. Temperature and air flow in the upper chamber are regulated by opening or closing the mechanical vent at the top. Temperature readings are taken from time to time using a hand held infra-red temperature sensor, and when the appropriate reinstatement temperature is achieved, the core heater is removed and the core reinstated, following normal procedures.
Coring Truck Options
Slidemaster Heavy Duty Slide-out Storage Tray for MD-200
For convenient on deck storage and easy access to heavy materials, most of our MD-200 purchasers choose the optional, heavy-duty (2000 lb distributed load) deck-mounted, Slidemaster slide-out tray.
The slide-out tray is 72-in long by 30-in wide and made of powder-coated steel. It rolls easily on sealed, steel bearings and can hold spare drums, road plates, Utilibond and other tools or materials.
Ergonomically designed, it can extend over 4-feet beyond the curbside of the deck to give the crew safe and easy access to all stored items. It comes equipped with a spring lock device that automatically locks in the open and closed positions, and a removable end-gate to keep the contents on-board.
Optional 500-lb. Core Hoist for MD-200
To avoid workplace injury of crews working with heavy or larger cores many purchasers also choose this optional Core Hoist. This powerful, rear deck-mounted (12 V), core hoist is available as an option on the MD- 200 to safely hoist and manipulate cores weighing up to 500-pounds. A typical 18-inch diameter core, 8-inches deep, weighs about 170-pounds and one 12-inches deep, more than 250 pounds, making the core hoist an option most MD-200 purchasers select.
Optional 500-lb. Core Hoist for Series 500
To avoid workplace injury of crews working with heavy or larger cores many purchasers also choose this optional Core Hoist. This powerful, boom-mounted, adjustable (12 V), core hoist is available as an option on the Series 500 coring unit to safely hoist and manipulate cores weighing up to 500-pounds A typical 18-inch diameter core, 8-inches deep, weighs about 170-pounds and one 12-inches deep, more than 250 pounds, making the core hoist an option most Series 500 purchasers select.
Optional DC/AC 2000 watt Inverter for MD-200 or Series 500 Coring Units
Rather than employing a bulky (and sometimes balky) gas generator we believe that an on-board inverter is a better solution to provide 12-volt power on-site to drive tools. The unit that we recommend is a 2000 watt True Sine-Wave AC unit with high-surge capability that can provide the necessary current to startup demanding electrical loads. The unit also includes an innovative USB connection for providing power to mostUSB chargeable devices and has a built in warning alarm (to restart the vehicle) and an automatic shut down if battery voltage reaches 11.0 Vdc or 10.5 Vdc, respectively.
Its compact size (3.9" x 11.8" x 13.7") allows it to be conveniently installed in the cab behind the seat where it is protected from the weather. In addition to dual GFCI AC receptacles on the unit itself, heavy duty cabling carries the source of AC to an all weather receptacle at the rear deck area to provide power for all types of electricalloads including, variable speed power tools for mixing Utilibond and electrical appliances, such as the core heater for cold weather reinstatement work.
DC/AC Inverter: 2000 watts maximum, with 3000 watt surge capability (installed).
Cold Weather Winterizing System for MD-200 or Series 500 Coring Units
During cold or freezing temperatures, to prevent frozen water lines and valves, Utilicor offers a self contained, easy access, glycol based Winterizing System consisting of an 8 gallon auxiliary glycol tank and connections to the unit’s pressurized water system that allows the operator, with a turn of a valve, to completely winterize all of the water lines and valves on the coring unit when the vehicle is in transit or shut down between jobs.
Deck Mounted Access Steps for MD-200 or Series 500 Coring Units
Best Safety Practices and some Government Regulations recommend or require all commercial or industrial vehicles that require personnel to climb up to and down from the deck area to have access steps and handholds, that allow the user to have at least 3 limbs in contact with the vehicle while doing so. This necessitates a fourpoint support system throughout the access route to allow for one hand or one foot to be in movement to the next handhold or foothold during the deck access process. Utilicor offers a 2-step pullout, galvanized steel ladder and handholds or supports, installed on the curbside of the vehicle forward on the deck or at the rear corner of the deck, that generally comply with the essential elements of SAE J-185 "Access Systems for Construction and Industrial Equipment". When not in use, the ladder stows neatly, under the deck in its storage frame
Optional Under-Deck Mounted, Checker-Plate Aluminum Storage Boxes on Series 500 Coring Units
Instead of the two standard 48" Long x18" High x18" Deep (9 cu. ft) painted steel, under-deck storage boxes, these optional aluminum storage boxes more than double the available under-deck storage capacity. Constructed from heavy duty, aluminum checker-plate, these double compartment storage boxes are 96" Long x 20" High x 20" Deep (22 cu. ft.), with a border all around, and two bottom-hinged, fold-down (90°-150°) compartment doors supported by aircraft-style lanyards. Each box has an internal fixed vertical divider and a full-length adjustable shelf.
These units come in two configurations: General Storage and Long Handled Tools. Access to the General Storage unit is divided in half, with two 46" wide doors and the Long Handled Tool unit has one door 82" wide (to accommodate long handled keyhole tools) and one door 10" wide to accommodate the control pendant and other small items. All doors are equipped with lockable, heavy duty Stainless Steel "T" Lock Handles. All locks are keyed alike. Specify street side or curbside mounting.
