Delmag Driving Attachments

Delmag manufacture a range of diesel impact hammers and various types of lead systems, that can be used in combination for different applications and requirements.

They are particularly reknowned for the Delmag Diesel Hammer, which are extremely rugged and reliable impact hammers. They are used for driving a variety of different types of pile including tubular piles, H-beams and sheet piles, as well as raking piles. They can also be used for the determination of the pile load capacity. Diesel pile hammers can be used in all displaceable soils.

Delmag hammers are single acting free fall hammers utilizing the principle of impact atomisation. The self-ignition of the compressed fuel/air mixture is used to fire the hammer. The pile helmet is pressed onto the pile before the piston strikes. Due to the compressed air in the cylinder, damage to the pile heads is reduced.

Modern Delmag hammers are equipped with an adjustable fuel pump for regulating the stroke of the piston and therefore the impact energy. This is a particular advantage when soil formations change. Optionally a hydraulically actuated fuel pump with infinite settings is available.
