Resonating and drilling combined.
Without doubt, the PVE RD260 Resonator is the most important innovation in the field of vibro technology since 20 years. Without vibration, a profile is brought to its natural frequency, as a result of which it drives itself into the ground like a spring. A new application is now available for this vibration-free technology: a combination of resonating and drilling. With this leader-guided combination of Resonator and rotary head, we created a powerful tool with new applications such as the placement of tubes (up to 30 metres long), micropiles and anchors that are driven into the ground quickly and without vibration. On the photographs, 37 metre long tie bars were being installed.
This Resonator-Drill combination is now available for rent from the Dieseko Group.
At the end of last year, PVE introduced 2 compact hydraulic power packs. The 200 and 450 are the long awaited successors of a classic compact series from the nineties. With 230 and 465 L/min respectively and equipped with an adjusted manifold that is suitable for driving vibratory hammers, rotary heads, winches, etc.
Mobility is a major benefit of such a compact set: With weights as low as approx. 3 (200) and 5.3 tonnes in an extremely small housing, it is possible to transport a set using a standard box truck. A major advantage if the equipment is to be used on many different locations.
These power packs are provided with a Stage IV / Tier 4F Volvo engine with AdBlue and biodegradable oil, as well as the new iQan MD4 control system with wireless remote control. The compact power packs have a significantly lower energy consumption and are also much more silent, thanks to different filters and the visco drive of the radiator fan, amongst other things. Size matters, they say at PVE.
