A. Road Construction and Maintenance
Roads are subjected to heavy traffic loads and extreme weather conditions. For durability, deep compaction of the base and subbase layers is necessary. Grid rollers can attain in-depth compaction of materials ensuring air pockets are eliminated and the material particles are densely packed together. Elimination of air pockets prevents surface cracking and rutting when the road is exposed to hot weather. Dense material particles packing prevents settling of the base and sub base when the road is subjected to traffic loads.
B. Landfill Construction and Compaction
Grid rollers play a crucial role in landfill construction and compaction. They are used to compact and stabilize the waste material in landfills, reducing voids and increasing density. By applying pressure, grid rollers ensure proper compaction, which minimizes settlement and improves the structural integrity of the landfill. This compaction helps prevent the release of harmful gases, enhances waste containment, and promotes overall landfill stability and longevity.
C. Airport Runway and Taxiway Construction
Runway and taxiway construction process is similar to road construction. To prevent cracking of the asphalt surface, the base and subbase layers need to be well compacted. This helps sustain impact and traction loads generated by landing planes on the runway.
D. Sports Field and Racetrack Construction
Grid rollers are employed in the construction of sports fields and racing tracks to achieve proper compaction of the base and sub-base materials. By compacting the soil or aggregate layers, grid rollers create a stable and uniform surface that enhances the performance, safety, and longevity of sports fields and racing tracks.
E. Other Potential Applications
In addition to road construction, landfill compaction, and sports field construction, grid rollers have potential applications in various areas. These include the construction of airfields, dams, embankments, and railway tracks. They can also be used for compaction in industrial sites, residential developments, and any project requiring soil, asphalt, or material compaction for improved stability and load-bearing capacity.
