Hydraulic Driving Frame
ESC offers a selection of resuable steel mandrels which can be utilized to improve the driveability of the PVC Sheet Piles. These mandrels can be customized or standard ones can also be provided.
A special hydraulic press frame may be suitable for vinyl sheet pile installation due to the fact that they do not require an excavator or vibrohammer, thus saving project costs.
The frame consists of a hydraulic cylinder which can be connected to a pile head sleeve. The cylinder has a stroke of typically 1 metre or less, so the frame must be progressively lowered in stages as the pile is pressed down. The height adjuster is used to lower the hydraulic press frame. A counterweight is also used to prop the frame down to react against the downward pressing force.
