Controlled Power Chipping Hammers

Category: Dismantlement > Non-Cutting Methods > Chipping Hammer
Reference # : Model No : W1

The chipping hammer is a pneumatic chisel used to remove lead sheeting from the external surfaces of the glove box and tank.


Technology is mobile, easy to operate, and relatively simple to set up and tear down. ú Production rate was high. Cutting activity was conducted under safe conditions for operators, evaluators, and the environment. Cutting tool is useful to cut external pipes or protrusions on glove boxes and tanks. Rigging equipment was not required since FRAMATOME's operators size reduced each surrogates in manageable small pieces facilitating manual removal.


Chipping hammer continues to impact briefly after throttle is released that may become a hazard for operator if not operated properly. Lead chips are generated during lead shielding removal. Hearing protection is required while operating this tool. This tool vibrates during use, which may be harmful for operator hands and arms
