Road construction asphalt base course

New bypass road construction near Kastellaun, Germany

Project data:

  • Single-layer bearing course installation with AC 32 TS
  • Bitumen: 50/70
  • Mat height: 14 cm
  • Length of construction: . 400 m
  • Output per day: 500 t


Compaction requirements:

  • Half side paving approx. 3.60 m
  • 1 x BW 161 ADO-5 AM (9.6 t)
  • 1 x BW 174 AP (10 t-class)
  • Number of passes:
    4 x vibration
    2 - 4 x static (ironing)
  • Rolling speed: 4-6 km/h


The typical application of a roller with tangential oscillation is not only limited to thin layers or low vibration compaction work on bridges or in the vicinity of housings.

In connection with its powerful vibration (front drum) the roller is suitable for a wide range of applications. The deep reaching vibration (possibly with high amplitude) and the oscillation near the surface result in positive synergies.

Result: Much quicker homogeneous compaction progress right from the beginning - even more important if unfavourable weather conditions cause the mix to cool down much quicker.
 
No matter whether thick bearing courses or thin surface layers: BW 161 ADO-5 with wide range of applications. No matter whether thick bearing courses or thin surface layers:
