Gain even 15 % better compaction rate by using TANA E520 Compactor

One of the easiest ways to extend productive lifetime of a landfill is to choose a landfill compactor that offers the best compaction rate on the market. And as a sole plus, this can be done with smaller fuel consumption.

- Our guarantee to deliver a minimum of 10 % better compaction is a guarantee of producing better airspace management that every landfill operator should consider when searching possibilities on extending the life expectancy of a landfill. For example one of our customers in Belvedere Landfill, Italy, can now expect even three more years of operation compared to the time before purchasing TANA E520, says Christian Constantini, Regional Manager of Tana.

TANA E520 produced a better compaction and saved total of 210m3 in valuable airspace. For optimizing the volume reduction even further, TANA landfill compactors can be equipped with the intelligent TANA ProLoc®

Tana’s minimum of 10 % better compaction guarantee – secret is not the weight of the compactor itself

One could imagine that the main issue in compaction is the weight of the compactor. However, this is not the case. - In Belvedere landfill TANA E520 was tested against 3 tonne heavier Bomag BC 1172, and TANA gained 15 % better compactivity, Constantini says.

- The higher crushing power is achieved by the full-width twin drum design and crushing teeth, with a rigid frame, which are the unique characteristics of the TANA landfill compactors. While four wheels can provide more weight per square meter, the overall compaction rate stays low when waste extrudes around the wheels. This is one of the reasons why TANA compactors can achieve a better compaction with less driving. Test was ran by an independent surveyor Sauro Salvadori from STUDIO TECHNICO NESTI e SALVADORI.

Large drum offers a faster and better compaction with the crushing teeth, saving both time and fuel by minimizing the excessive driving over the waste.

Providing a higher compaction per cubic meter was not the only area where TANA outperformed the competitor. Both the driving time and fuel efficiency were better as well. During the tests TANA E520 used an average of 0.09 litres per compacted ton of less fuel than the competition. When compacting a total of 300,000 tonnes annually, the savings in fuel can reach to 42,000 euros (1.5 €/litre) per year.

TANA compactor works especially well in slope condititions and in mud or sludge, where any four-wheeler can have troubles operating. See this comparison video of the pushing power:
