PILING HAMMERS SELECTION
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 have the sufficient handling capacity for stable operation. Thus the excavator brand & model is needed for the correct selection of model.
The same MOVAX piling hammer can be used on different carriers; mounting options include excavator-, MOVAX multi-tool piling leader-, (third party) piling rig- or crane. For the suitability of mounting onto MOVAX mulit-tool piling leaders refer to the Product Catalogue section in question. The suitability of a MOVAX piling hammer for third party piling rig or crane installation shall always be checked by MOVAX.
Site and soil conditions
Piling hammers are suitable for a wide range of sites and soil conditions (N-values/SPT). In order to make a detailed analysis of the suitability of a MOVAX model for a specific project a soil report is needed.
Type & dimension of piles
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.
