1. PNEUMATIC JACK HAMMER A jackhammer is a pneumatic tool that combines a hammer directly with a chisel that was invented by Charles Brady King.[1] Hand-held jackhammers are typically powered by compressed air, but some use electric motors. Larger jackhammers, such as rig mounted hammers used on construction machinery, are usually hydraulically powered. They are usually used to break up rock, pavement, and concrete. In modern terminology, a "jackhammer" does not have the capacity to drill rock. A jackhammer operates by driving an internal hammer up and down. The hammer is first driven down to strike the back of the bit and then back up to return the hammer to the original position to repeat the cycle. The bit usually recovers from the stroke by means of a spring. The effectiveness of the jackhammer is dependent on how much force is applied to the tool.

History Pneumatic drills were developed in response to the needs of mining, quarrying, excavating, and tunneling. The first "percussion drill" was made in 1848 and patented in 1849 by Jonathan J. Couch of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

In this drill, the drill bit passed through the piston of a

steam engine. The piston snagged the drill bit and hurled it against the rock face. It was an experimental model. In 1849, Couch's assistant, Joseph W. Fowle, filed a caveat for a percussion drill of his own design. In Fowle’s drill, the drill bit was connected directly to the piston in the steam cylinder; specifically, the drill bit was connected to the piston’s crosshead. The drill

[3] By 1850 or 1851. invented a similar pneumatic rock drill in Freiburg. there was also no way to convey steam over long distances (e. Cavé.g. and after the compressed air had been used to power equipment..[5][6] The need for a mechanical rock drill was obvious and this sparked research on pneumatic rock drills in Europe. to officials of the Mt.also had a mechanism for turning the drill bit around its axis between strokes and for advancing the drill as the hole deepened. By contrast. Fowle was using compressed air to drive his drill. had been contemplating the excavation of a 12-kilometer (7. compressed air could be conveyed over long distances without loss of its energy. mines and tunnels occasionally contained flammable explosive gases such as methane. Carlo Alberto. a rock drill that used compressed air. Thomas Bartlett made and then patented (1855) a rock drill in which the drill bit was connected directly to the piston of a steam engine. however. the king of Sardinia. Schumann. In Europe since the late 1840s.[9]) Bartlett’s drill was refined by the Savoy-born . the air had to be admitted manually to the cylinder during each stroke. which would cross his realm. and in 1851 patented. designed. furthermore. making it the first true pneumatic drill.[4] The demand for pneumatic drills was driven especially by miners and tunnelers because steam engines required fires in order to operate and the ventilation in mines and tunnels was inadequate to vent the fires' fumes. In 1855 Bartlett demonstrated his drill. so it was not successful. in England.[7] In 1854. Germany. from the surface to the bottom of a mine).[8] (In 1855. it could still serve to ventilate a mine or tunnel. A Frenchman. a German.

This unit take all the weight and vibration from the user. called a rivet buster. the term "jackhammer" usually refers to electromechanical version of the tool. Both use their combined weight to push the bit into the workface.[12] In Britain. Positioner Actuator Manipulator. except for a very strong man. and push the tool back against the work after each blow. although strictly speaking a "pneumatic drill" refers to a pneumatically driven jackhammer. A technique developed by experienced workmen is a two-man team to overcome this obstacle of gravity: one man operates the hammer and the second assists by holding the hammer either on his shoulders or cradled in his arms. requiring strength conditioning and endurance to hold a smaller jackhammer. while "pneumatic drill" is used colloquially elsewhere in the English speaking world. by 1861. Another method is overhead jackhammering.A.[10] Thereafter. many inventors refined the pneumatic drill.engineer Germain Sommeiller (1815-1871) and his colleagues. over one's head. To make overhead work even safer a platform can be used.M. Grandis and Grattoni. One such platform is a P. [11] Terminology The word "jackhammer" is used in North American English and Australia. . as the user would have to both support the weight of the tool. This method is commonly referred to as horizontal jackhammering.[citation needed] Use A full-sized portable jackhammer is impractical for use against walls and steep slopes.

[13] is a jackhammer that uses compressed air as the power source. when the clutch was disengaged maximum. by a diesel engine. The unit comprised a reciprocating compressor driven. The air supply usually comes from a portable air compressor driven by a diesel engine. when the clutch was engaged and the compressor was running .Types Pneumatic A compressor for running a pneumatic jackhammer A pneumatic jackhammer. through a centrifugal clutch. also known as a pneumatic drill or pneumatic hammer. The engine's governor provided only two speeds: • • idling. Reciprocating compressors were formerly used.

The unit is usually mounted on a trailer and sometimes includes an electrical generator to supply lights or electric power tools. This tool is useful where the work is light and access to a compressor is limited or impractical. some users of pneumatic jackhammers may use a pneumatic lubricator which is placed in series with the air hose powering the air hammer. Hydraulic . It requires a heavy duty extension cord to power the motor instead. Electromechanical A single phase demolition breaker. Additionally. Furthermore. air compressors typically incorporate moisture into the compressed air leading to freeze-ups of the jackhammer or air hammer in cold weather. This section requires expansion.Modern versions use rotary compressors and have more sophisticated variable governors. This increases the life and performance of the jackhammer. Specific lubricant in filled in the pneumatic lubricator.

These larger machine mounted breakers are known as Rig Mounted. may be fitted to mechanical excavators or backhoes and is widely used for roadwork. quarrying and general demolition or construction groundwork. since the vehicles involved are massive enough and powerful enough to exert the forces involved without needing the help of gravity in operating the tool. Health A jackhammer with black silencer attached .An excavator-mounted hydraulic jackhammer being used to break up concrete. since they lack any high-power electrical circuitry that might cause a triggering spark. Pneumatic or hydraulic tools are particularly likely to be used in mines where there is an explosion risk (such as underground coal mines). as a hydraulic hammer would develop a low strike speed and transfer unacceptable shock loads to the pump system. or Machine Mounted Breakers. Such tools can also be used against vertical walls (or ceilings for that matter). Hydraulic breakers usually use a hydraulic motor driving a sealed pneumatic hammer system.

a condition known as white finger. Many factories and plants already have a compressed air system. Sound-blocking earmuffs must be worn by the operator to prevent a form of hearing damage of which tinnitus is the main symptom. Pneumatic drill usage can also lead to a predisposition for development of carpal tunnel syndrome. SELECTION OF PNEUMATICS: Mechanization is broadly defined as the replacement of manual effort by mechanical power. which is capable of providing both the power or energy requirements and the control system (although equally . Most pneumatic jackhammers now have a silencer around the barrel of the tool. Prolonged exposure to the pronounced vibration set up by the tool can lead to blood-circulation failures in the fingers. Applying athletic tape is not effective in preventing white finger but seems to help alleviate some of its discomfort. makes pneumatic jackhammers dangerously loud.The sound of the hammer blows. Pneumatics is an attractive medium for low cost mechanization particularly for sequential or repetitive operations. emitting 100 decibels at two meters. combined with the explosive air exhaust.

the latter reducing maintenance to a low level. It can also have out standing advantages in terms of safety. The main advantages of an all-pneumatic system are usually economy and simplicity. 2. CLASSIFICATION OF AIR COMPRESSOR .pneumatic control systems may be economic and can be advantageously applied to other forms of power).

Compressors are similar to pumps.1 INTRODUCTION OF THE COMPRESSOR A gas compressor is a mechanical device that increases the pressure of a gas by reducing its volume. the compressor also reduces the volume of a gas. Liquids are relatively incompressible. so the main action of a pump is to pressurize and transport 2. As gases are compressible. both increase the pressure on a fluid and both can transport the fluid through a pipe.2 Types of compressors Centrifugal compressors Diagonal or mixed-flow compressors Axial-flow compressors Reciprocating compressors .2.

MIXED FLOW COMPRESSOR Diagonal or mixed-flow compressors are similar to centrifugal compressors.000 psi (69 MPa). chemical and petrochemical plants and natural gas processing plants. With multiple staging. increasing the velocity of the gas. Many large snow-making operations (like ski resorts) use this type of compressor. they can achieve extremely high output pressures greater than 10. Their application can be from 100 horsepower (75 kW) to thousands of horsepower.Rotary screw compressors Rotary vane compressors Scroll compressors The main types of gas compressors are CENTRIFUGAL COMPRESSOR Centrifugal compressors use a rotating disk or impeller in a shaped housing to force the gas to the rim of the impeller. but have a radial and axial velocity component at the exit from the rotor. A diffuser (divergent duct) section converts the velocity energy to pressure energy. They are primarily used for continuous. They are also used in internal combustion engines as superchargers and turbochargers. Centrifugal compressors are used in small gas turbine engines or as the final compression stage of medium sized gas turbines. The . stationary service in industries such as oil refineries.

Beyond about 5 stages or a 4:1 design pressure ratio. Axial compressors can have high efficiencies. requiring a large number of components. decelerate and redirect the flow direction of the fluid. The rotating airfoils. However. The arrays of airfoils are set in rows. The stationary airfoils. variable geometry is normally used to improve operation. tight tolerances and high quality materials. They are used where there is a requirement for a high flow rate or a compact design. [edit] Axial-flow compressors Main article: Axial-flow compressor AXIAL FLOW COMPRESSOR Axial-flow compressors are dynamic rotating compressors that use arrays of fan-like airfoils to progressively compress the working fluid. The diagonal compressor has a lower diameter diffuser than the equivalent centrifugal compressor. accelerate the fluid. . with the cross-sectional area of the gas passage diminishing along the compressor to maintain an optimum axial Mach number. preparing it for the rotor blades of the next stage.[1] Axial compressors are almost always multi-staged.

can be single or multi-staged. and are typically larger.4 MPa). ROTARY SCREW COMPRESSOR Rotary screw compressors use two meshed rotating positive-displacement helical screws to force the gas into a smaller space. multi-stage double-acting compressors are said to be the most efficient compressors available. noisier. and within certain chemical plants. Small reciprocating compressors from 5 to 30 horsepower (hp) are commonly seen in automotive applications and are typically for intermittent duty.[6] Another type of reciprocating compressor is the swash plate compressor. four or six cylinders.Axial-flow compressors can be found in medium to large gas turbine engines. and can be driven by electric motors or internal combustion engines. and more costly than comparable rotary units. Larger reciprocating compressors well over 1. such as air compression. These are usually used . RECIPROCATING COMPRSSOR A motor-driven six-cylinder reciprocating compressor that can operate with two. which uses pistons which are moved by a swash plate mounted on a shaft.000 hp (750 kW) are still commonly found in large industrial and petroleum applications. In certain applications. They can be either stationary or portable. in natural gas pumping stations. Discharge pressures can range from low pressure to very high pressure (>6000 psi or 41. Reciprocating compressors use pistons driven by a crankshaft.

Their application can be from 3 horsepower (2. with piston compressors one of the oldest of compressor technologies.200 horsepower (890 kW) and from low pressure to very high pressure (>1200 psi or 8. a series of decreasing volumes is created by the rotating blades. They can be either stationary or portable. Rotary Vane compressors are. 2 bar) for bulk material movement whilst oil-injected machines have the necessary volumetric efficiency to achieve pressures up to about 13 bar in a single stage. can be single or multi-staged. Dry vane machines are used at relatively low pressures (e. blades slide in and out of the slots keeping contact with the outer wall of the housing. SCROLL COMPRESSOR Mechanism of a scroll pump . A rotary vane compressor is well suited to electric motor drive and is significantly quieter in operation than the equivalent piston compressor. The rotor is mounted offset in a larger housing which can be circular or a more complex shape. As the rotor turns. With suitable port connections.[1] Thus. the devices may be either a compressor or a vacuum pump.g.3 MPa).2 kW) to over 1.for continuous operation in commercial and industrial applications and may be either stationary or portable. ROTARY VANE COMPRESSOR Rotary vane compressors consist of a rotor with a number of blades inserted in radial slots in the rotor. and can be driven by electric motors or internal combustion engines..

A scroll compressor. They operate more smoothly. or hybrid curves. while the other orbits eccentrically without rotating. also known as scroll pump and scroll vacuum pump. uses two interleaved spiral-like vanes to pump or compress fluids such as liquids and gases. thereby trapping and pumping or compressing pockets of fluid or gas between the scrolls. quietly. one of the scrolls is fixed. and reliably than other types of compressors in the lower volume range Often. This type of compressor was used as the supercharger on Volkswagen G60 and G40 engines in the early 1990's. The vane geometry may be involutes. . Archimedean spiral.

Piston It is the main component which is placed inside the cylinder. Then the compressed air is passed though the directional control valve for supplying the air alternatively to either sides of the cylinder. which means that the air pressure operates alternatively (forward and backward). A pressure gauge is attached to the regulator for showing the line pressure. The air from the compressor is passed through the regulator which control the pressure to required amount by adjusting its knob. Here stud and nut are used to connect the plates Spring Open coil spring is used in this system.Stud and nut It is used to connect two plates or some members of the setup. Two hoses take the output of the directional control valve and they are attached to two ends of the cylinder by means of connectors. . CYLINDER: The cylinder is a single acting cylinder one. One of the output from the directional control valve is taken to the flow control valve from taken to the cylinder. It is used to force the ram in and out by the action of compressed air.
