SAVE ON AIRSPACE, FUEL & REWORK WITH COMPACTION TECHNOLOGY
What if you could compact more trash in the same amount of space, adding years of life to your landfill and a big boost to your bottom line? It’s not a pipe dream. Landfill managers using GPS technology—like Cat® Compaction Control for Landfill Compactors—report efficiency gains of 10-25%, thanks to more accurate pass counting and better compaction density. Here’s how it works—and six ways you can benefit.
HOW IT WORKS
Cat Compaction Control for Landfill Compactors combines advanced compaction measurement, in-cab guidance for operators and reporting capabilities for managers. The system includes a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receiver on the roof of the machine and a mapping display inside the cab.
You can select a Satellite-Based Augmentation System (SBAS) to track pass counts or a Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) system to monitor both pass counts and elevation. Either option is ready to go on Cat K Series compactors straight from the factory, which means you can add it any time. You can also choose to start with SBAS and upgrade to RTK when the time is right.
6 WAYS YOU CAN BENEFIT
1.GET MORE ACCURATE PASSES.
Even the best operators can lose track of pass counts over the course of a long shift or in the rush of peak times. When that happens, you run the risk of over- or under-working the waste. With Cat Compaction Control, operators don’t have to keep track—the system delivers real-time 3D pass mapping right in the cab, indicating exactly where to work. Just by glancing at the display, your operators can maintain a consistent, proper four-pass pattern, all shift long.
2. ACHIEVE BETTER DENSITY.
With the RTK version of Cat Compaction Control, the system does more than map pass counts. It also uses an elevation-based algorithm to measure when layers are compacted to optimum density. No more relying on operators to judge compaction by feel or stopping work for manual measurement. Now, your operators will know exactly when their compaction work is done—saving time and fuel in addition to maximizing density.
