REDUCTION OF EXHAUST SMOKE EMISSION FROM DIESEL PILE HAMMER

Whenever a great number of piles must be driven, a free-piston type diesel pile hammer is more economical than other machines because it achieves faster driving, lower operating costs, greater profits, etc. However, the diesel pile hammer creates some problems associated with noise, vibration and air pollution. In this study, experts of Japan's Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. experimentally analyzed the cause of smoke formation in the diesel hammer, and developed some effective and inexpensive devices for smoke abatement. As a result, the company's new and improved diesel hammer has successfully met the California smoke emission standards in the United States.
