Balanced three-wheel static roller

The R2H is a balanced three-wheel static roller that develops 365 pounds of force per linear inch across its 83-inch rolling width. Precise tracking, combined with a built-in drum overlap, means even coverage and compaction effort no matter where the machine goes. Adding water ballast enables the machine to work on thicker lifts or even soil compaction jobs. Traction and gradability are improved and the torque helps pull the mix under all three drums for blemish-free compaction.

It is useful for paving bridge decks, city streets and large parking areas, and can pinch a longitudinal joint.

Atlas Copco Celebrates 30th Anniversary of Atlascopcosaurus

It’s not clear how the unnamed dinosaur died 100-120 million years ago, but it’s been only 30 since he finally encountered a predator he couldn’t outrun: Atlas Copco equipment.

“Not every company has a dinosaur species named after it,” said Sofie Gielen, Atlas Copco’s marketing communications director, in commemorating the 30th anniversary of the discovery of Atlascopcosaurus. “Three decades later, we’re still extremely proud of the fact that our equipment helped unearth the fossilized skeleton of Atlascopcosaurus so it could be shared with the entire world.”

Preventing utility damage through non-destructive technologies

Despite growing awareness around safe excavation processes, hundreds of thousands of damaged utilities are reported each year across Canada and the U.S. During the design phase of a construction project, it can be difficult to achieve an accurate picture of subsurface utilities, which creates unnecessary risk for all stakeholders involved. Utility records are often a composite of accurate records, outdated records and at times, incomplete records. In fact, a study conducted in the mid-90’s revealed that existing records and visible feature surveys are typically 15 to 30 percent off the mark, and in some cases, considerably worse (Stevens and Anspach 1993).

Adding to the challenge is the fact that over the past 50 years there’s been a shift towards building subsurface utilities out of durable PVC materials rather than the more traditional cast iron piping and ductile iron. These non-conductive, “nontoneable” assets are not always traceable through commonly used utility detection methods.

Bergkamp’s M210 Truck-Mounted Slurry Seal & Micro Surfacing Paver Lengthens Pavement Life

Bergkamp Inc., based in Salina, KS, offers the M210 truck-mounted slurry seal and micro surfacing paver to deliver one of the most efficient methods of preventive maintenance for highways, roads and parking lots—which can extend the life of pavement by up to seven or more years. Slurry seal and micro surfacing is a mixture of aggregate, asphalt emulsion, water and additives that is applied over existing pavement as one smooth layer. The truck-mounted M210 can carry 10.5 yd3 (8.0 m3) of aggregate in a level struck load, 600 gallons (2,271 liters) of asphalt emulsion and 600 gallons (2,271 liters) of water. It features a 65-gallon (246-liter) stainless steel additive tank. The pugmill, conveyor and all liquid material tanks are removable for easy cleaning. All tanks are bolted in rather than welded, adding extra durability and improving ease of maintenance. The asphalt emulsion and water tanks are separate components, eliminating possible rust-through and contamination of products.

The M210 has a proven design with convenient control locations and good operator visibility. The unit is powered by an onboard 99-horsepower Cummins diesel engine located at the front of the unit in an enclosed engine compartment that reduces noise for the driver and crew. It provides flexibility to better manage legal load weight restrictions by adding up to three tag axles, including one behind the drive axle—which increases the wheelbase and helps meet the Federal bridge law.
