BRUCE Vibro SGV-200 working at river bank rehabilitation


The high efficient BRUCE vibro hammers SGV-200 generates perfectly targeted vibrations by  transmitting the torque from motors to the eccentric shafts in the gear box, which is known as the most elaborately machining processed in the Vibro manufacturers, working optimally with vibrating equipment that is freely suspended under the 60 tons capacity of crane. 

A compact design and bearing techniques making long bearing life that make the BRUCE Vibro Hammer SGV-200 an maintenance friendly Vibro which is reliable and stable.

The BRUCE Vibro SGV-200 with a 84 tons of centrifugal force and a 360 lpm of maximum oil flow has utilized for application on the river bank rehabilitation project involved linking long line of sheet piles along the water used for river wall or cofferdam to obtain a space restriction. 

Because of many advantages of using steel sheet piles, the sheet pile sections are well proven in both permanent and temporary works like this time of job throughout the work, the work comprised of vibrating and extraction of the river wall and installing a new sequence of sheet piles.

The BRUCE SGV-200 Vibros ease of operation, low maintenance requirements and long service life makes it an economic and optimum dependable choice from the customers. 

Installation of SGV-200 Vibro hammer

Installation of BRUCE SGV-200 Vibro hammer was commenced attachment a 100U clamp In a first stage to connect to the Vibro body in opposition direction of hydraulic Hose bundles where connected.

The standard length of 45m hydraulic Hoses were connected between Vibro and Power Pack making sure of obtaining enough length for driving and extracting the piles.

In order to run the SGV-200 Vibro, a five line of hydraulic hoses were connected with a BRUCE

power pack PQ-350V with a 400hp of engine power, a 360lpm of oil flow and especially a separate cooling system to perform a multi environment features to meet different project needs. 

BRUCE Vibro SGV-200 better for your job 

The requirements for the BRUCE Vibro SGV-200 was to drive 10~20m of steel sheet piles to make a sequence of sheet pile wall or cofferdam to obtain a space restriction alone the river.

The universal clamp, so called, sheet pile clamp  with single jaws 100U Clamp (Clamping force 100 tons / 981 Kn) was used to grip a sheet piles and later on, the caisson clamp 80D will also be made for a casing pile work within next 4 weeks

The BRUCE Vibro Hammer is well known its elaborated and fine machined components consisting  of core parts inside the Gear Box such as eccentric weights, shafts and gears .

The finely processed core components in the gear box with precision cast high density components Provides the maximum possible pile amplitude from gripping point to the end of the pile.

And another high techniques known to the client about gear processing system is that an alloy steel and super tough gears provide an industry uncalculated more than 20 year useful life. 


The SGV-200 matched the Centrifugal force and maximum required Amplitude optimally to the  soil condition with a Volume Dial Button on Remote Control Pendant to adjust Engine rpm in the power pack PQ-350V that adds a monitoring warns of engine trouble, adjusting engine rpm and etc

Recommendable Pile weight and Driving depth

The Centrifugal force in tons should be 15 times higher than Pile weights in tons and 6~10mm of minimum required Amplitude is typically necessary for a Pile weight less than 10 tons

Accordingly, Pile weight to 3 tons and a 20m of Driving depth is recommended

and it can be covered by BRUCE SGV-200 Vibro Hammer for the job.

A Handhold Remote Control Pendant

A portable and a handhold BRUCE Remote Control Pendant will help you get the Vibro

working job done in a set of operating to be more comfortable and accurate ways.

The vibrating speed can be adjusted depends on driving condition by the Volume switch on it. 

Functions of BRUCE Remote Control Pendant  

Small and light weighing nearly 1 kg

Its getting more comfortable and accurate driving can be done.

A hand grabbing size with easy to handle

Emergency stop button that shut the Engine off.

Dial Speed Volume to increase or lower the vibrating speed.

Clamp Lamp can be lit to make sure pressure for vibrating ready.

Clamp Lamp always remain in holding position to pile until it retract.

Selector Switch can be turned into forward, backward and stop vibrating.

No failure of electrical downtime during operating the Vibro Hammer
