How can Tana achieve 10% higher compaction rate than anyone else?
The most simple way to calculate the landfill compaction density is to measure the landfill area, airspace used and tons applied to this area. Typically it is between 700 kg /m3 and 1300 kg /m3. This density is affected by the waste type and its varying characteristics as well as equipment used for compacting. TANA E-series landfill compactor reaches a minimum of 10% higher compaction rate than any four-wheeled machine in any country.
Let us look through an example what this means in money. The example is based on reality of an Australian customer some years back. The diagram below illustrates the compaction rates on a Australian landfill where the customer went from a four wheeler to Tana. After having used Tana for a year they made a comparative calculation of the compaction rate. Results: Tana 1,25 tons/m3, four-wheeler 0,9 tons/m3.
Tana compaction methodology explains in further detail how this is being done. Read more here.
Landfill compaction test conducted in March 2015, showed that 3 tons lighter TANA E520 landfill compactor achieved 15% better results in compacting by 12% less fuel than the Bomag BC 1172 RB (55 ton) machine.
