IMPACT Piling hammer 500 series
The 500 series represent the smallest hammers in the IMPACT range. With ram weights between 1.5Mt and 3Mt and a drop height of 1.200mm this small hammer is capable of driving concrete, steel and timber piles. With the sheet legs this hammer can also be used for driving sheet piles. All is possible as a free hanging device or leader mounted.
Due to the small diameter and the round shape it is easy to position your small diameter piles under the 500 series.
Within the 500 series the hydraulic system is equal. Therefore up grading to a heavier ramweight is without any problems. Only add a ram weight and extend the frame and increase the hydraulic pressure. That is what we call flexibility!
4 Different models
Ram weights from 1.5 up to 3 tons
Drop height of
E pot = POTENTIAL ENERGY = M * G * H Example: IMPACT 3S40 hammer E pot = 3 (ton) * 9.81 (m/s²) * 1.2 (m) = 35.3 kNm
E kin = KINETIC ENERGY= 1/2 MV² Example: IMPACT 3S40 hammer E kin = 3 (ton) * 4.85 m/s * 4.85 m/s = 35.28 kNm
(V = max drop speed at max stroke ram weight) V is measured by sensors and measures actual speed.
Efficiency IMPACT HAMMERS ACCELARATED: E pot / E kin = 99 % – 4 % absorbtion by cushion pad = 95%
