LIEBHERR LRB 16 AND LRB 18 PIL­ING AND DRILLING RIGS

PMV Middle East - - TECHNICAL REVIEW -

Liebherr’s LRB 16 and LRB 18 are all-round pil­ing and drilling rigs for di­verse ap­pli­ca­tions within the deep foun­da­tion sec­tor.

The LRB 16 gets its name from the sledge’s travel dis­tance, which is ap­prox­i­mately 16m.

With a longer leader, the pil­ing and drilling rig is also avail­able as a LRB 18, which cor­re­sponds to the sledge’s travel dis­tance of 18m.

Both the rigs have com­pact de­signs and low op­er­at­ing weights, which re­sults in low ground pres­sure and en­ables quick set-up on sites as well as flex­i­bil­ity in trans­fer­ring the ma­chine be­tween dif­fer­ent job­sites. The LRB 16 and LRB 18 have op­er­at­ing weights of 47.9 t and 50.9 t, re­spec­tively.

Fre­quent ap­pli­ca­tions of the LRB pil­ing and drilling rigs are the in­stal­la­tion of slurry walls. Ad­di­tion­ally, the ma­chines is suit­able for other com­mon foun­da­tion work in­clud­ing drilling with con­tin­u­ous flight auger or dou­ble ro­tary head, soil mix­ing and pil­ing work with a hy­draulic ham­mer.
