As much as there is sensitivity to the choice and purchase of a mechanical device, there is also sensitivity to expectations about its maintenance, repair, and protection.
Many buyers, due to the nature of the contract space and the rapidly rising prices of goods in today's market, usually expect the purchased device to have a long life, but sometimes against the wishes of buyers, the device is quickly exposed to breakdowns and technical defects.
One of the most important issues in predicting the life of a device is having enough information about its performance and technical structure.
This led us to the compactor and look at how it works, the amount of depreciation and its causes. So if you also own a compactor or even intend to buy it, stay tuned until the end to understand the generalities of this issue.
Perspective of the compactor
By examining the operation and nature of the compactor, this is not in the scope of this discussion, but we will routinely examine the nature of the compactor as a prerequisite for creating a proper attitude about the compactor itself.
The main purpose of using this device is to compact the soil and level it; as you may have heard, the first step in paving the way is to pound the soft soil below and create a strong layer of it. This is done with the help of a compactor.
This device provides the necessary force to compact the soil and tighten its surface layer by vibration (in plate compactor) and impact (in damping rammer). The power needed to do this is provided by a motor. Despite the prospect of the nature of this device, its depreciation can be better investigated.
Depreciation in plate compactor? Vibrations are costly.
In a plate compactor, the motor vibrates by rotating an output shaft connected to an asymmetric shaft. In this method, the unbalanced weight imposed on the engine output centrifuge will cause vibration.
The vibration created is depleting in itself. Basically, a vibration from a mechanical point of view means the constant oscillation of an object around a certain point; this particular point is the equilibrium point.
Note that the vibration of the compactor is not a damping plate, ie it is constantly repeated and supplied by a power source. In each period of vibration, a set of device parts collide with each other, because without the collision, the vibration itself will not occur.
This constant collision of parts and particles of material will cause your device to depreciate over time. This is the same amount of wear that can be seen, for example, in a car shock absorber, but with the difference that it is faster because in the vibration of the plate compactor, it is as if the same shock absorber experiences thousands of ups and downs at the moment.
Imagine what would happen to the shock absorbers and the car room if your car were constantly running for hours at a fast speed; Do not doubt that it breaks down quickly and breaks in some places and breaks in other places.
This is precisely why the design of mechanical devices tries to reduce the vibration to zero, although not only is this not possible in practice, but in a device such as a plate compactor, this vibration forms the basis of the device's operation.
Depreciation on the damping rammer? Refer to Newton's third law.
The basis of work in a damping rammer is multiple shocks instead of small vibrations (of course, it should not be forgotten that this is also a kind of vibration mechanically, but not in the general term).
In this device, the output force of the engine piston will be spent on the continuous ups and downs of a rod in the vertical direction. The reciprocating motion of the rod causes the damping rammer to strike multiple blows to the soil surface by the shoe.
Refer to Newton's third law:
Every action has an equal reaction in the opposite direction.
This means that every strong blow that the damping rammer strikes the ground, a force with the same force and in the opposite direction will enter the damping rammer itself.
Thus, it is not only the ground that is compressed and crushed under the high power of the damping rammer, but also the damping rammer itself that experiences heavy blows.
Constantly inflicting heavy blows on the device will obviously cause its high depreciation. So if we're talking about damping rammer wear, we're actually talking about a lot of force that the earth exerts in reverse.
This is only part of the problem, on the other hand, the function of the device itself is accompanied by the constant movement of various parts that create friction; Maternal friction is depreciation in mechanical devices.
A device engaged in constant vibration and tension
Finally, what causes severe ground friction is the constant tension, constant pressure, and constant friction that the device struggles with while working with them.
Careful consideration of this issue leads us to realize that this inherent stress in the compactor components, which is so high, is somewhat unavoidable, but we as users of this device can reduce the wear of the device by observing some points.
The exact description of how to work with this device may not be in the text, but it is necessary to state that following the tips and practical rules of working with this device is necessary to maintain health and reduce the severity of its depreciation.
This is necessary in all moving mechanical devices, but in a device with such a level of stress and pressure, it is more important than others and is effective in increasing the service life.
Material and construction quality
Apart from the correct use, the material involved in the construction of the compactor, its technical structure and mechanical design are not ineffective.
This is why some brands in equal conditions always consider higher prices for their products because high quality materials and engineered design will increase the price of the device.
This is not a slogan; you also have to pay more to have a more durable device with a longer lifespan.
