BOMAG Economizer System

Staff | September 28, 2010

BOMAG's Economizer system helps contractors complete compaction jobs more quickly and effectively. The system is standard on the BPR100/80D reversible vibratory plate compactor and an option on the BPR45/55D series, the BPR55/65D and the BPR65/70D.

The Economizer consists of a vibration sensor together with a computing and display unit and provides continuous, real-time feedback of soil stiffness by means of an LED display on the engine hood. The display indicates the level of compaction achieved and also highlights any soft spots in the material, allowing contractors to identify any problems in the sub-grade and make sure the job is done correctly. This allows avoidance of unnecessary passes, reducing passes by as much as 25 percent. It also helps avoid over-compaction.
