When to use vibratory hammers
Vibratory hammers are used for a wide variety of projects. Apart from driving and extracting elements such as sheet piles and pipes, vibratory hammers are also used for soil densifying. With vibration technology it is possible to drive offshore at a depth of 100m under water, e.g. for the driving of casings for gas and oil pipe lines.
A vibratory hammer drives elements into the soil through the centrifugal force of its eccentric weights.
Vibratory technology is easier than most conventional technologies and it also cuts down operating time and costs!
What type of hammer?
What hydraulic vibratory hammer to use on site is depending on:
form, dimensions and weight of the elements to be driven
soil conditions at the site
presence of constructions close to the site
