UNDERNEATH IT ALL
If you are measuring compaction with a soil compactor, your
accelerometer-based system might be missing the mark.
Machine Drive Power (MDP) is a new, innovative soil
compaction measurement technology available only from
MDP measures closer to the depth of the lift with less
variability than accelerometer-based systems, even on
cohesive soils. That gives you confidence that the soil you
are compacting will support the load.
Machine Drive Power
Can be correlated with plate load test
Usable with smooth drum, padfoot, or padfoot shell kit
Usable on granular or cohesive material
