During pile driving, running of piles can cause damage to the operating jacket, crane and hammer. Therefore, the Pile Anti Running Clamp (PARC) is a tool specifically designed to stop pile running within milliseconds to prevent any potential fatigue. Initially, PARC applies low clamping pressure in order to create a firm pile-clamp contact. The tool then operates in combination with a standard power pack and high-pressure accumulator set; once pile running occurs, energy from the accumulator package will be released, resulting in the immediate stop of pile running. PARC offers flexible operational methods, which is suitable for either manual or automated control.
