Bomag Economizer: Seeing Compaction in a New Light
Soil and asphalt compaction measurements are usually finished by manual methods. For example, to measure asphalt density, Marshall and nuclear gauge tests are usually used to determine the density and material filler conditions of compacted asphalt. Meanwhile, measuring soil density can be conducted by sandcone and CBR (California Bearing Ratio) test to decide the level of hardness and density of compacted soil. This manual measurement method certainly very time-consuming and costly.
In response to that needs, Bomag as the world’s leading brand for compaction equipment developed “Bomag Economizer” technology to measure the results of compaction in real time.
Bomag Economizer shows the increasing of material compaction results on a display that can be directly seen by the operator. This technology is very easy to use and unnecessary to make any adjustments or calibrations.
Bomag Economizer will automatically read the progress of the compaction results. The indicator lights indicate the level of density of the material being compacted so that the operator can know when to stop and avoid over compaction. In addition, operators can save the number of passing on a dense material area.
Bomag Economizer can be installed on almost all Bomag product lines such as Bomag Single Drum Rollers (Vibro), Bomag Tandem Roller and Bomag Light equipment. Further information regarding Bomag products, do not hesitate to contact PT United Tractors Tbk as the sole distributor of Bomag in Indonesia.
