K160: The Most Powerful Pneumatic Knocker in the Worldsingold gerätetechnik gmbh produces and sells the world’s most powerful pneumatic knocker.
While competitor models can at best cover a wall thickness of up to 12 mm, the K160 can knock walls with a thickness of up to 25 mm. This makes it suitable for massive, heavy-duty containers. For example, it is used in the mining industry for discharge chutes, in the building materials industry for gravel bunker outlets, in the chemical industry for mixing plants, in the lime industry for silos with a capacity of over 200 tonnes and in the fertiliser industry.
The powerful model has an impact energy of 423 newton metres. This corresponds to the energy generated when a weight of 42.3 kg is dropped from a height of 1 metre. This high impact energy cannot be achieved with human forces, even if a 20 kg sledgehammer were used. The reason? The acceleration and, consequently, the final velocity of the impact weight in the knocker is far higher than the final velocity that a human being can generate. When the piston, which is designed as a magnet, is
