With this vast experience, you can be sure our PHB design is based on our knowledge, experience, reputation and great customer feedback from around the globe.

Why do all hydraulic hammer manufacturers’ ratings have specific impact energy numbers that are in the same range, but in many cases, the tools are different diameters? It is quite important to understand that “energy in” is proportional to “energy out” based on the principle that both hammers are working at the maximum oil flow and are equally efficient. The “through oil” flow is proportional to power, as it is the oil that initially powers the hammer.

Tools cannot be too small in diameter or they will break. The diameter of hydraulic breakers may also be too big and then it will not penetrate. With a heavy hammer and small tool, you can be sure this is just a smaller power cell installed in a larger case. This would compare to a small engine in a large automobile. Therefore, the tool diameter MUST be in proportion to the hammer weight, piston diameter, GPM and PSI of the hammer. If the “through oil” flow rate is also low, this will confirm these other factors. Keep this in mind when browsing through various hydraulic hammers for sale.

How to Purchase a Hydraulic Hammer

Understanding your new hydraulic hammer purchase should always be your first step, prior to speaking with any hydraulic hammer dealer. There are many manufactures and importers of hydraulic hammers. All hydraulic hammer manufacturers have specifications on their hammer product line. Some hydraulic hammer dealers may tell you that their published specifications are calculated and honest. Mathematical calculations are used in every hydraulic hammer design whether, good or bad.

All manufacturers should agree that simple physics will be the final factor for all hydraulic hammers true impact energy, oil flow, pressure and blows per minute. This rule will apply to the piston size, hydraulic pressure, blows per minute, hammers actual weight and the carrier weight.

It is quite important to understand that “energy in”, is proportional to “energy out” based on the principle that both hammers are working at the maximum oil flow and that both are equally efficient.

Make an educated comparison. The “through oil” flow is proportional to power as it’s the oil that powers the hammer initially. Tools cannot be too small in diameter or they will break. The diameter of the tool may also be too big, than it will not penetrate. With a heavy hammer and small tool, you can be sure this is just a smaller power cell installed in a larger case. This would compare to a small engine in a large automobile. Therefore, the tool diameter MUST be in proportion to the hammer weight, piston, GPM and PSI of the hammer. If the “through oil” flow rate is also low than this will confirm these factors.

The oil ratio is calculated by multiplying the bar against GPM/ LPM to give the true through oil input. The tool oil ratio is the diameter in millimeters of the tool, times the through oil input. The higher the number will produce a greater final force (impact energy) at the point of the hammer. This is assuming that the piston size is the same as a comparable hammer.

Through oil input to weight ratio, shows how much potential power the hammer has against its physical weight providing the piston is the correct piston for that hammer. The lower the number will mean the better power to weight ratio. Tool per weight ratio is calculated as kilograms/ tool diameter in millimeters. A lower number means more penetration. A higher number will mean a heavier hammer weight again, possibly pointing toward a big hammer with a small tool. This is what is termed a dead weight hammer.

It is imperative that your local sales person for any brand of hydraulic hammer understands exactly what he is offering. In most cases, the dealer will not have had the training required to understand exactly what he is offering to the buyer. He would need to understand physics first. He would then need to have training in steel properties and heat treat methods.

Normally, the dealer can only look at a standard carrier comparison chart and offers you a new hydraulic hammer based on what a chart may say without any understanding of what he is looking at. However, in all fairness, he will tell you “it’s a good hammer”

It is at that point, the headaches, challenges; downtime and company losses may possibly begin.

FEL-TECH PHB Series Hydraulic Hammers are not just another hydraulic hammer that has been “rushed” into the market as a quality hammer. The FEL-TECH PHB Series is designed as a high production hammer with true calculations that are very hard to dispute.

Compare the FEL-TECH PHB Series hammer and it will be instantly noticed that the PHB Series has ratings that actually make sense to the contractor.

It also may be noticed that a different manufactures hammer that is offered as a specific size, may not be correctly rated as advertised. This is unless; the general rules of physics have been partially altered to satisfy salespersons wish to sell you the hammer.

Remember! A hammer uses oil which it converts into breaking force which is transmitted to the tool point.  Power is generally proportional to oil throughput as you will get out what you put in, after which the tool penetrates the rock. A very heavy automobile with a small engine will never win you that race.

Many problems with Hydraulic Hammers, in general, are all related to product quality, initial cost, proper use and efficiency.

The FEL-TECH team has the hydraulic hammer for the contractors in the Continental United States, Canada and throughout the world that has a sound factory commitment, structural reliability, design innovations, unmatched severe duty use and good old fashion dependability time after time with a low cost per use hour and the correct oil flow / pressure ratio.

Severe Duty Hardox* Case

Toughness is the material’s resistance to crack propagation. In general terms, a tough material can absorb more energy during elongation before the crack leads to failure. When plates with high toughness such as Hardox* encounter hard impacts, the result can be denting. Plates with similar hardness but lower toughness develop denting with micro cracks, resulting in increased wear and larger cracks. Hardox* can sustain sliding wear of hot abrasive materials. The reason is that the heat flow (conductivity) in the steel is much higher and thus conductivity transfers heat. FEL-TECH’S Hardox plate’s hardness properties remain basically unaffected in spite of the heat and abrasive exposure.

Efficient Design

The FEL-TECH design and build process begins the series of precision steps adhered to by our designers, the use of quality raw materials, and continues right through to the FEL-TECH Shipping Centers, and ultimately, out into the field. Depending on other hydraulic hammers and manufacturers, some or all of these stages may be ignored in real-world situations in order to save time or reduce cost. At FEL-TECH Hammer Division no product design, quality control method, or customer need is ever overlooked. FEL-TECH Hammers and The FEL-TECH Customer Service Process are designed to exceed our customer’s expectations each and every time. At FEL-TECH Hammer Division, our customer’s experiences have, and continue, to build and verify our strong reputation.

True Maximum Force

The unique FEL-TECH Hammer Division design incorporates the internal energy inside the cylinder walls with its patented superior internal design method and extra-large oil ports. FEL-TECH Hammers are nitrogen fired to exert extreme force with each blow. The micro-precise engineered piston efficiently transforms potential into kinetic energy with complete impact force as your concrete, rock, granite and other tough materials break reliably and as expected, hour by hour and ton by ton. The patented seal system will not allow potentially harmful dust particles to enter the firing chamber with each blow to ensure reliable, uninterrupted service.

Heavy Duty Construction

Whether it’s construction or mining, limestone or granite, your new FEL-TECH PHB Series Hydraulic Hammer can handle your project. FEL-TECH has an internal system quality feature and is specifically designed and built to withstand extreme shocks, vibrations, and internal torque. FEL-TECH will exceed your expectations over and above your past experiences with any other hydraulic hammer. It’s no wonder that our hydraulic hammers are now used in the removal of Nuclear sites were the hammer must enter the site and work with no issues. A hammer in a nuclear demolition site cannot be removed for repair due to a now, contaminated hammer. FEL-TECH Hammers have been used on the demolition of “The Brookhaven” site on Long Island and were problem free.

FEL-TECH Hammer Division offers chisel paste that is very unique. We fill our grease paste tubes at FEL-TECH Hammer Division “In House” with a 16% graphite and copper flake along with other high-quality ingredients. Each case has 16 tubes per case. We also offer 35-pound pails in stock for auto greasers.

FEL-TECH Bracket Design

When FEL-TECH set out to design and manufacture their high-quality severe duty hydraulic hammers, we realized that the hydraulic hammer brackets were always a problem in the industry. When a contractor sold their old machine and purchased a replacement machine, Many times the new replacement carrier was from a different manufacturer. This meant a new bracket was needed for their hydraulic hammer in many cases. FEL-TECH Hammer Division has solved this problem. At FEL-TECH Hammer Division you can simply change your side bracket bushings (and sometimes the pins) and you can still use your FEL-TECH hammer bracket. This means a savings of up to $4000.00 on the larger carrier hydraulic hammer. With innovation through design, FEL-TECH Hydraulic Hammers are manufactured for use by all contractors, all carriers, and all applications.
