Volvo Eight-amplitude, High Frequency Compactors
July 14, 2008

These Volvo high frequency compactors can keep pace with pavers moving at faster speeds, assist in reaching target densities in higher temperature zones and allow fine-tuning of drum energy for differing materials and changing conditions through eight-amplitude technology exclusive to Volvo. With the eight amplitudes, operators can adjust to the right setting for the material to achieve the required density without worrying about fracturing aggregate particles in the mix. Both compactors employ the SMART start system, available only on Volvo compactors. A consistent mat quality and density is achieved through this system. The lead drum vibrates first and the trailing drum begins to vibrate at the same place as the lead drum.
