No soot, less CO₂ and hardly any measurable CO values or nitrogen oxides: Liquified petroleum gas (LPG) - or simply liquid gas - offers many advantages. In 2015, BOMAG introduced the BT 60 G and BT 65 G tampers, the world's first tampers with an environmentally friendly gas drive. The low-emission technology also makes it possible to work in deep and narrow trenches or enclosed spaces. Two small safety bottles provide 2 hours of full compaction power and can be refilled in a few simple steps.
BOMAG gas-powered tampers are universally applicable. Wherever rollers or vibratory plates cannot reach. The low pollutant emissions with practically 0% carbon monoxide (CO) protect construction site workers’ health. They even make it possible to carry out compaction work in trenches more than 3 m deep in confined spaces for more than 1 hour a day. The clean gas tampers can, of course, also be used in enclosed spaces.
Both 1-litre liquid gas craftsman-size cartridges can be changed easily thank to the tool-free coupling system. The small red cartridges are refilled via a standard 11 kg propane gas bottle. Refilling takes just a few seconds. The tampers are ready for use again in no time at all. The runtime is up to 2 hours. The remaining operating time of the gas tamper can easily be determined thanks to the integrated operating and daily hour meter.
With the exception of the gas drive, the BT 60 G and BT 65 G gas tampers from BOMAG are based on the proven concept of the corresponding petrol models. The powerful 4-stroke gas engine can also be started conveniently with a cable pull. The intelligent motor protection system features a rev counter and an hour meter for maximum safety and efficiency. Thanks to green engine technology, BOMAG gas tampers provide compaction power right where it is needed, e.g. in trench compaction.
