All Types of Road Rollers You Should Know For Compaction

Classification of compaction machinery

Many friends and co-workers are currently using road rollers. I don’t know how many types of road rollers are divided into, and what projects each type of road roller is suitable for. Let’s talk about the detailed classification of road rollers for your reference and learning!

According to the working principle, structural characteristics, transmission mode, operation method and purpose of compaction machinery, there are different classification methods. Traditionally, compaction machinery is divided into two types: road rollers and compactors.
At present, the machinery industry is customarily divided into net weight and working weight: small rollers, medium rollers, and large rollers. At home or abroad, small rollers are the most used!
So let’s take a closer look at the classification of compaction machinery:
1. Road roller
There are three types of rollers: static rollers, vibratory rollers, and combined rollers.

Static rollers are divided into two types: tire rollers and smooth rollers. The tire rollers include: self-propelled tire rollers and towed rollers. Smooth rollers include: two-wheel two-axle rollers, three-wheel two-axle rollers.

Vibratory rollers are divided into (the most widely used type in the industry, called: small rollers): walk-behind vibratory rollers, ride-on vibratory rollers, tire-driven vibratory rollers (bumps, smooth wheels), two-wheel tandem vibratory rollers There are five types of articulated integral type) and drag type vibratory roller.
Among them, walk-behind rollers include: single-wheel walk-behind vibratory rollers, two-wheel walk-behind vibratory rollers (also divided into heavy machinery and conventional machinery and full hydraulic).
Vehicle-mounted vibratory rollers include: small vehicle rollers (0.8 ton type, featuring large front wheels and small rear wheels), 1 ton vehicle vibration road rollers, 1.5 ton vehicle vibration road rollers, 2 ton vehicle vibration road rollers, 3 ton vehicle vibration road rollers, 3.5 tons Vehicle vibratory rollers, etc. (single-wheel vibration and double-wheel vibration and full hydraulic pressure are involved here).
Tire-driven vibratory rollers (bumps, smooth wheels) include: rear-wheel-drive vibratory rollers and all-wheel-drive vibratory rollers.
Two-wheel tandem vibratory rollers include: rear-wheel-drive rear-wheel vibratory rollers, two-wheel-drive rear-wheel vibratory rollers, and two-wheel-drive two-wheel vibratory rollers.
Towed vibratory rollers include: bump-towed vibratory rollers and light wheel towed vibratory rollers.
There are few types of combined rollers, and they are collectively referred to as combined rollers and small rollers.

Two, compaction machine

The compactor is divided into four types: vibratory plate compactor, vibratory impact compactor, frog compactor, and explosive compactor.

Vibrating plate compactors include: forward vibrating plate compactors and reversible vibrating plate compactors.
Vibratory rammers include: electric vibratory rammers and internal fuel-fueled vibratory plate rammers.
Compared with the single type of frog rammer and explosive machine, except for new products, they are collectively referred to as frog rammer and explosive machine.

According to the transmission mode, it can be divided into: mechanical transmission roller, hydraulic transmission roller, and hydraulic mechanical transmission roller.
According to the operation mode, it is divided into: walk-behind roller, car-mounted roller, towed roller, and self-propelled roller.
According to the purpose, it can be divided into: basic compaction roller, asphalt pavement compaction practical roller, groove compaction roller, slope compaction roller, etc.
