Showcased in the CASE booth (1446) at World of Asphalt 2015 will be the new CASE DV209C, which gives road builders more control and versatility to dial in compaction performance to match each lift. The DV209C features a frequency range of 42 to 55 hertz standard and 46 to 67 hertz high frequency. This higher frequency range gives operators control over compaction performance based on the thickness and density requirements of the lift. When combined with variable amplitude settings (.22 to .6 millimeters), these machines can be dialed in to better handle thinner lifts (low amplitude/high frequency) and thicker lifts (high amplitude/low frequency). Centrifugal force can also be dialed in (15,736 to 21,582 pounds) to best match the thickness of the lift and the desired depth of compaction.
HAZEMAG Wobbler Feeders are proving their worth around the world. These units are engineered and designed to ensure application success, flexibility and field proven reliability.
