MOVAX Piling Hammers are hydraulic, double acting impact-type, piling hammers utilised for driving load-bearing piles or assisting in sheet pile driving in even the most difficult soil conditions.
MOVAX piling hammers can be utilised to complete a pile installation after reaching refusal with a side grip pile driver or when load testing is required. MOVAX piling hammers can further be utilised independently for driving a wide range of piles including sheet piles, H-beams, tubular steel piles, timber piles or pre-cast concrete piles.
The suitable MOVAX piling hammer-model is selected based on the soil & site conditions, the excavator and the main dimensions (weight & length) of the piles to be driven.
The configuration is then defined by the type of piles.
The excavator must be suitable – and match – the specific piling hammer in question in regards to hydraulic power (oil flow @ pressure) and it must also have the sufficient handling capacity for stable operation. Therefore the excavator brand & model is needed for the correct selection of the MOVAX piling hammer model.
The same MOVAX piling hammer can be used on different type of carriers. The mounting options include excavator-, MOVAX multi-tool piling leader-, (third party) piling rig- or crane. Due to the modular design only minimum modifications are needed to use the same unit on different carriers.
MOVAX piling hammers are suitable for a wide range of site and soil conditions (N-values/SPT). Movax Oy’s engineering department provides support in determining the suitability of a MOVAX piling hammer for a specific project. In order to prepare a detailed analysis a project specific soil report is needed.
In order to select the correct MOVAX model, the type of piles (sheet pile, H-beam, tubular steel pile, precast concrete and/or timber pile) and their dimensions (length, width/depth, OD) are needed. Due to the modular design the same MOVAX piling hammer can used to drive different type of piles.
MOVAX piling hammers are designed for medium to large size crawler or wheeled excavators and utilised for a wide range of piling and foundation applications ranging from civil, road and rail to utilities, environmental & energy and piers & waterways.
MOVAX Piling hammers can be either excavator, MOVAX Multi-tool piling leader, (third party) piling rigor crane mounted. The same unit can be used for multiple piling tasks due to the modular design.
