THE ALL NEW IMPACT COMPACTORS.
ICON just introduced it’s new fleet of exclusive machinery to the South African construction industry, “The All New Impact Compactors”, the superior compaction capability of our 3 sided & 5 sided impact compactors will cut your compaction costs and contract program time. Our state of the art impact compactors are newly built to the highest specifications and quality ensuring maximum availability on your site.
The 5-sided impact compactor is a more general purpose compactor and is mainly used on the earthworks where use of this impact compactor makes it possible to place material in thick layers.
Depending on the material type, fill can be placed in layers of 500mm to 700mm thick and more. This gives the 5-sided compactor an output of about 2000m3 per hour compared to the output of a vibro roller of about 300m3 per hour. The 5-sided compactor is also used on in situ material on sites where only moderately deep compaction is required.
The 3-sided compact compactor is generally used for the compaction of situ material on sites where deep compaction is required. Because the depth of influence of an impact compactor is significantly greater than that of conventional equipment, use of the 3-sided compactor usually makes it possible to satisfactorily compact soil from the surface instead of having to remove the soil and replace it in layers as would be the case with vibro rollers.
Depending on the material type, in situ material can be improved to depths of 3 meters and more. On many construction sites the impact compactor has been the only compactor that could achieve the required densities by compacting the site surface without having to remove and replace the material in layers, resulting in a large cost saving. The 3-sided compactor is also used on fill where there is an advantage inlacing very thick layers.
