PVE (Piling & Vibro Equipment), based in the Netherlands, manufactures High Frequency and Variable Moment hydraulic vibratory hammers from 8kg.m (weighing 1.5-tonnes) through to 70kg.m (weighing 12.0-tonnes), as well as special application Normal Frequency vibratory hammers up to 500kg.m (weighing in excess of 120.0-tonnes).
PVE Vibratory Hammers & Extractors
Vibration is an environmentally friendly and fast method for placing and removing foundation profiles and sheet piles. A vibratory hammer brings a profile into vertical motion. The amplitude here varies from a few millimetres to a few centimetres. This results in soil liquefaction that reduces resistance. Due to the combination of vibration and weight, the profile drops to the desired depth. In addition, a vibro hammer is also suitable for soil compaction and we even have applications to install drains.
Different types of vibratory hammers
Normal Frequency refers to the rotational speed, up to max 1,700rpm. The range varies from 23 up to 500 kgm eccentric moment. A normal frequency vibratory hammer can be used widely, and has the power and amplitude to perform well even in strongly adhesive soil. Suitable for all types of profiles. Dieseko Group supplies ICE NF type and PVE M type vibratory hammers. No excessive vibrations: Vibratory Hammers with a Variable Moment (Resonance Free).
Our Variable Moment vibratory hammers / ICE Resonance Free vibratory hammers provide powerful solutions for projects where excessive ground vibrations during start-up and shut-down must be limited. This proven VM-technology results in a continuous variable centrifugal force from 0 – 100%. Suitable for all types of profiles. The range varies from 5 up to 90 kgm eccentric moment.
Pilequip supplies vibratory hammers in the traditional, free-hanging version, in a leader-guided version and EMV vibratory hammers that can be attached to excavators. Special models include ring vibrators and the Side Gripper. .
