crane with a pile driver .

Equipment consist of: Pile driving hammer Pile driver Accessory Tools .

usually by means of pulleys.  Modern pile driving equipment uses various methods to raise the weight and guide the pile . to drop the weight onto the end of the pile.Types Ancient pile driving equipment used manual or animal labor to lift heavy weights.

5)Draws fresh air through the exhaust ports. . impact and explosion energy to the pile 1) Raise the piston to start 2) Injection of diesel fuel and compression 3)Impact and explosion 4)Exhaust ports exposed and gases escape.Types Diesel hammer A Diesel hammers impact compression.

Vertical Travel Leads .oVertical Travel Leads come in two main forms: Spud and Box Lead types.

Pile driving hammers are designated by type and size  The hammer types commonly used include the following: o Single-acting stream or compressed air o Drop o Double-acting stream or compressed air o Differential-acting stream or compressed air o Diesel o Hydraulic o Vibratory drivers .Pile Hammer  To furnish the energy required to drive a pile.

o More environmentally acceptable than the older. and timber piles. precast concrete. less efficient hammers as they generate less noise and pollutants. o Dominant noise is caused by the impact of the hammer on the pile .Hydraulic hammer o Modern type of piling hammer o Used in place of diesel and air hammers for driving steel pipe.

Hydraulic press-in o Specialty equipment which installs piles using hydraulic rams to press piles into the ground. o The reaction based machines operate at only 69dB at 23 ft allowing for installation and extraction of piles. o Allows for greater press-in and extraction force to be used since more reaction force is developed. o Preferred where vibration is a concern. o There are press attachments that can adapt to conventional pile driving rigs to press 2 pairs of sheet piles at a time. o Additional types of press equipment sit on top of existing sheet piles and grip onto previously driven piles. .

Vibratory pile driver/extractor o Designed in such a way that horizontal vibrations cancel out. o The pile driving machine is lifted and positioned over the pile by means of an excavator or crane o Vibratory hammers can either drive in or extract a pile o Hydraulic fluid is typically supplied to the driver by a diesel engine powered pump mounted in a trailer or van and connected to the driver head through a set of long hoses. ranging from about 1200 vibrations per minute to about 2400 VPM . while vertical vibrations are transmitted into the pile. o Hammers are available with several different vibration rates.
