Test results confirm the consistently high compaction quality
The construction company made use of different rollers when paving both the ballast base course and the hydraulically bound base course. However, the high compaction quality was primarily achieved thanks to the outstanding compaction performance of the HC 228 D. The evenness of the carriageway was significantly improved. This meant that, even on the day of the first measurement and three days later for the subsequent measurement, ≥96% of the required compaction values were met. What's more, for the hydraulically bound base course, this figure was as high as ≥97%. After the total compaction was completed, the degree of compaction of both layers, which were 36 cm thick in total, only showed a deviation of 0.3%.
Vögele SUPER 3000-3i: Maximum paving width, high paving capacity
The Vögele SUPER 3000-3i is the largest paver in the range and designed for paving very large widths of up to 18 m. The entire width of the road can be paved in a single working gear. This high continuous operation is made possible by the high-performance Cummins engine with a maximum power of 354 kW and a paving capacity of 1800 t/h.
The innovative material conveying concept enables a high conveying capacity, an ideal material flow and an optimal distribution of mixed material for different layers. A special feature is that the height of the rear part of the chassis, including the conveyor belt and spreading auger, can be continuously adjusted at the touch of a button. This means that the material is always transferred onto the spreading auger from above, in other words from the ideal discharge point.
