Dynapac combines SD2500CS paver with high-compaction screed to reduce need for rollers

Dynapac says it can achieve 94 percent pre-compaction with its new screeds on its highway-class pavers, including the 20-ton SD2500CS paver it rolled out at ConExpo.

The company added a hydraulic pressure plate to the back of its new tamper, high-compaction electric (TH E) screeds. “That pressure plate is what gets us between 90 and 96 percent compaction off the back of the screed,” says Marco Paris, technical specialist. “That’s huge, because you literally can almost just run one roller behind this paver, and you’ll get your compaction numbers.” He notes that typically three rollers are required for compaction behind similar-sized pavers, primarily used for new roads and airport projects or any conditions in which higher compaction is needed before roller compaction.
