Bomag Technology: Improving Soil Compaction Quality to be More Effective and Efficient
United Tractors, Jakarta: The quality of asphalt and concrete roads significantly determined by the soil compaction process. Ineffective compaction will result in unstable soil. An inspection in the laboratory and field are needed to see the optimum soil density.
Dynamic Cone Penetrometer (DCP) is a common field measurement test used in Indonesia. The sample of asphalt road is taken by core drill tools which tested in the laboratory using Marshall Hammer test to get the densitiy of pavement quality. The methods certainly required a lot of time and energy.
Bomag Measurement Technology
To answer this challenges, United Tractors as Bomag distributor presents superior products for compaction and asphalt equipment, such as Bomag Single Drum Rollers and Bomag Tandem Rollers which could do both soil compaction and asphalt very well.
As a solution-based company, UT also offers options of Bomag’s technologies to measure and control soil and asphalt compaction more effectively and efficiently. It could be done by installing sensors on the drum then sending the information to the screen or operator cabin’s dashboard. Operator will get the information for the density of the soil or asphalt that being compacted.
This Bomag’s technology options are Economizer, Bomag Evib Meter (BEM), Terrameter, Bomag Compaction Management (BCM 05), Asphalt Manager, and BOMAP.
Bomag’s technology could help customer to determine the road density faster than conventional measurement methods, reduce the number of passes or unnecessary compaction processes, as well as reduce fuel consumptions. It also improves the quality of compaction results so that customers could experience the various advantages.
