Sheepsfoot rollers are used for compacting fine grained soils such as heavy clays and silty clays. Sheepsfoot rollers are used for compaction of soils in dams, embankments, subgrade layers in pavements and rail road construction projects.
These are of static and vibratory types. Vibratory types rollers are used for compaction of all fine grained soils and also soil with sand-gravel mixes. Generally this roller is used for compaction of subgrade layers in road and rail projects.
Sheepsfoot rollers are used primarily for compaction of cohesive, dense soils such as heavy or silty clays. They are not effective on loose or sandy soils due to the protrusions simply tilling the soil rather than compacting it. In road construction works the sheep foot roller is very good for compacting soil and silty clay.
The resulting compaction of such soils by sheepsfoot roller is probably well for other types of machinery at low moisture content soil. A sheepsfoot blade has a straight cutting edge and a dull spine that runs parallel with the cutting edge and then sharply curves down towards the point.
For the “compaction” of soils in depth the use of so-called sheep foot rollers is known, this name being due to the fact that, instead of a smooth rim, they have a roiling surface provided with radially projecting spikes which have roughly the shape of a sheep foot.
The Global Sheepsfoot roller Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2023 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2024 to 2030.
Case launches new soil compaction rollers – Case launches its new compactor duo in the E Series line-up, the SV215E, and SV217E single-drum vibratory rollers. The two new models are designed for fast, consistent soil compaction on different lift depths and material types.
High centrifugal forces and standard dual amplitude and dual-frequency capabilities allow operators to dial-in compaction performance on each lift. Both rollers run at 154 horsepower and weigh 33,420 and 36,500 pounds, respectively, with centrifugal forces up to 73,063 and 74,861 pounds.
Each model is compatible with ACE force intelligent compaction technology to further guarantee documentation, productivity, and compaction quality.
Compatible speed and compaction across the job site are improved with an electronic self-adjusting torque control system providing constant power to the drum and wheels.
It is further aided by automatic traction control with an HX drive propulsion system – optional on smooth drums and standard on Padfoot models. The drive system enables E-series compactors to keep stability and performance on grades up to 67 percent.
