Tamping rammer is a lightweight and portable compaction machine that uses the phenomenon of vibration to compact the soil. It's sleek body and easy operation enable it to reach out to small nooks, thus, making it perfect equipment to use in hard to access places. These machines use power from either petrol or diesel.
Tamping rammers compact the soil mechanically using high impact force. So, they are ideal during the construction of roads and pavements where they need strong soil compaction.
Where to use a Tamping rammer?
Cohesive soil refers to clay or the type of soil with high clay content. The ideal soil for Tamping rammer must contain around 13% moisture. Clayey soils need a certain amount of water content to hold the soil particles together in a firm manner.
Tamping rammers are ideal for cohesive soil types because the smaller plate size offers focused and direct compaction. Avoid using soil compactors in gravel or asphalt as it may cause damages to the machine.
The compact shape of rammers allows them to reach smaller areas, tight spots, and trenches where compactors are not easy to manoeuvre.
The sleek structure of rammers enables them to compact the soil deeply and in a concentrated manner. Therefore, filling the trenches becomes easier by filling more soil in each layer.
