Equipment Type

 Tandem Vibratory Rollers

Tandem vibratory rollers compact freshly placed asphalt mats to specific densities using two, smooth steel drums that vibrate to consolidate the material. Many have sophisticated systems that continually measure density as compaction progresses and adjust compaction effort to avoid over-compaction. Using GPS and proprietary software, some rollers can capture a digital record of compaction results.
