Driving steel tube

A S90 IHC hydraulic hammer is driving a steel tube by the wharf.



A S70 IHC hydraulic hammer is driving steel tubes to the requested height.


Steel tubes with big dimensions

The considerable energy supplied by the blow of the S500 IHC hydraulic hammer gives the possibility to drive steel tubes with big dimensions.


Wide scope projects ...

The high performance of the IHC hydraulic hammers suits to wide scope driving projects requirements.
Thus, a S500 IHC hammer is driving tubes with a large section and a long length.

Tubes with long length

A S200 IHC hydraulic hammer is driving steel tubes with long length.
It is fitted out with a sleeve which caps the head of the tube on 2 to 2,50 m.

Tube meshwork for deep foundations

A S70 IHC hydraulic hammer is driving in steel tubes, intended to make up a meskwork of constitutive piles of the deep foundations of the civil engineering work to carry out.


Hammer with double sling

A S90 IHC hydraulic hammer is driving a steel tube.
The hammer has a sling in the lower part (at the level of the sleeve ) and one in the upper part (head).

Raked tubes

A S70 IHC hydraulic hammer is driving a tube at an about 20° angle compared to the vertical line.



A IHC S90 hydraulic hammer is driving a steel tube at an about 25° angle compared to the vertical line.


... double sling

The steel tube is getting driven by the means of a S70 IHC hydraulic hammer which is supported at the top and at the base by the sling.


Free hanging

Here's a free hanging S70 IHC hydraulic hammer.
Its guiding legs keep the metallic sections stable when they get driven.


A S70 IHC hydraulic hammer is free hanging from a cable shovel to drive steel tubes.



A S70 IHC hydraulic hammer is free hanging to drive a steel tube to the requested height.

Driving open piles

A SC40 IHC hydraulic hammer, powered by its IHC hydraulic power pack, is driving an open pile.

Sleeve adapted to the diameter of the tubes

A S70 IHC hydraulic hammer is fitted out with a sleeve whose diameter is adapted to the one of the driven tube.


Large diameter tubes

Big hydraulic hammers, such as the S150 IHC hammer, are thoroughly suitable to drive large diameter tubes.

Driving steel tubes underwater

All the ICE hydraulic vibratory equipments are suitable for underwater works.

Vibration driving underwater can be achieved whatever the driven sections.

Here, a 815C ICE vibrator is driving steel tubes.

Vibration driving on the beach

This environment is very favourable to vibration driving.

Indeed, this kind of beach easily allows vibrating works with metallic sheet piles by a hydraulic vibratory device such as this 416 ICE model.

Completing a sheet pile wall

Completing a sheet pile wall by the means of a 416 ICE hydraulic vibratory device does not disturb the nearby harbour activities.

Use in harbour environment, in salt waters

Salt waters have no effect on the mechanism of the 815 ICE hydraulic vibrator.
ICE hydraulic vibratory devices are commonly used in harbour environments.

Extracting metallic sections

This hydraulic vibrator 416 ICE Model is used to extract several metallic sections.

The ICE vibratory device withdraws the section from the soil and the mast supplies the requested static traction to the lifting of the vibrator which grasps and vibrates the section.

Waterlogged soils

ICE hydraulic vibratory devices, such as the 815 ICE model, are very efficient, especially when the soil layers are waterlogged.

Simplicity in the use


ICE hydraulic vibratory devices, such as this 416 ICE model, are very simple to use and are accessible to every jobsite staff.

In-depth works

The depth the ICE hydraulic vibratory devices work has no effect on their capacities.
The sturdiness of a vibrator like the 815C ICE model guarantees a perfect working.

Numerous means to use ICE vibratory devices

The possibilities as for the requested material means in the scope of an ICE hydraulic vibrator use, are numerous.

The crane support of the 815C ICE vibrator on a floating platform is a common configuration.

Driving steel tubes

ICE standard frequency hydraulic vibratory devices are very sturdy and powerful.
Their use is really suitable to harbour sites.

Here, a 1412 ICE vibrator is driving steel tubes.

Free hanging

The 815 ICE hydraulic vibrator is implementing a sheet pile wall.
It is powered by its corresponding ICE hydraulic power pack and is free hanging from a roadster self-propelling crane.

The 815C ICE hydraulic vibrator is fitted out with a caisson clamp.
It is free hanging from a cable shovel.

Implementation of a sheet pile wall

A 223 ICE hydraulic vibrator is carrying out a sheet pile wall.

Driving metallic sections

A 815C ICE hydraulic vibrator is driving steel tubes and metallic sections.

Sturdiness allowing large transversal section works

The 416 ICE hydraulic vibrator is sturdy.
It is suitable to drive sheet piles allowing a large transversal section.

Carrying out large section elements

The 1412 ICE hydraulic vibrator perfectly suits to carry out large section elements in harbour environments.
