There is the wide range of handheld construction equipment of hydraulic and pneumatic which is available for use when breaking the rock, drilling, sandblasting, and pavement. These include demolition and pick hammers, light, heavy and medium breakers, cut-off saws, post hole borers, rock drills, core drills, ground rod drivers, water pumps, and post drivers.
Using the air compression for the construction tools is convenient because they can use energy for compressed air contrary to the electricity. Certainly, when using the pneumatic power drilling tool, you can need the air compressor. The air compressor is loud, a big piece of the equipment and when you’re using it you require to wear ear muffs, safety glasses, hard hat, and safety gloves. Many air compressors can run on the diesel, and a basic maintenance check is supposed to be conducted before any operation. The compressed air power can be hazardous, and caution is supposed to be taken when the air compressor is being used.
There are firm safety rules which you are required to abide when using the pneumatic power tools. It’s essential to conduct the inspections before you operate the tool which you are not sure of them. The air hose is supposed to be checked for holes and cracks, and if you are suspicious, the hose is supposed to be replaced instantly. Before you start to connect air hose to air compression outlet, you need to open the valve. Essentially, you will need to make sure the air is smoothly and strongly flowing. After doing the connection with the hose tool to an outlet and then make sure the hose is free from water or the foreign objects before being connected to the hose to a power tool. When carrying out this, don’t point a hose to someone else, because the air force is dangerous. Always remember to turn them off the valve at an outlet first before disconnecting the hose.
The air breakers are actually designed for the general demolition and the well-known pneumatic power drilling tools in the market. The air breaker can be used when breaking medium and the hard materials like asphalt and concrete. Before you operate the air breaker, you are supposed to check all parts to make sure they are fastened well. The connections and hoses will then need to be checked for any leakage or damage. The breakers shank is supposed to be greased to make sure the glides is smooth through the materials you require to break. You also need to check built in lubricator for the air oil. Every time is cautious to make sure air supply is always off before you start to remove an oil plug, because once you don’t do so, you may end up with the oil squirting to your face.
The rock drill is also another well pneumatic power drilling tool you can come across when you’re using the air compressor to generally power the construction work. The rock drill is well designed for the heavier jobs like secondary and bench drilling and can be used when drilling the smooth blasting.
