Ergo-Tamp removes approximately 70 percent of the vibration at the hand-held end of a tool resulting in less wear and tear on personnel. By rendering the tool tolerable from an operational point-of-view, MBW contends that users will be far less prone to terminate compaction activity before achieving adequate soil compaction.
The company also offers a Vibration Suppression Kit that can be affixed to any brand of pneumatic tamper already in the field.
Air Tampers produce hand/arm vibration levels that are said to rank among the highest in the construction industry. Periodic exposure to excessive vibration is known to be a contributing factor in the development of white finger, carpel tunnel syndrome, arthritis and other chronic ailments.
