Using a unique BSP double-acting cylinder the ram is accelerated on its downward path to achieve higher impact energy.The energy is developed from a short stroke leading to a high blow rate and greater pile productivity compared to an equivalent single-acting hammer.The hammers are adjusted using a single variable flow control.
They can be supplied with a power pack, however, if the carrier has a hydraulic base with suitable open-circuit power-take-off the hammer can be easily plumbed in to this.
Drives all single and double sheet piles
High impact to weight ratio
Can be suspended from small capacity cranes
Can pass between upstanding piles
Drives single and double sheet piles
The control box can be remote from the power pack or mounted on board

Available to hire, hydraulic piling hammers are an economical solution for the installation of all types of steel, timber or concrete piles in either land or marine environments. The versatile design allows operation by crane suspension, from piling rigs or leaders and can be via an existing power source, or by separate power pack. Energy outputs range from 20kNm to 520kNm making them ideal for cohesive soils, very dense granular soils and soft rock.
