This stabilizer has an operating weight of 49,160 lbs and an engine power of 315 kW / 422 HP. The machine can cut to a depth of 20 inches at a 79 inch cutting width.
The WR 2000 can stabilize with foamed asphalt and emulsion. It is also fitted with a water pump for soil that is dry. The soil stabilizer size allows it to be used on lime and cement projects as well.
Other Information about Soil Stabilizers
Aside from stabilizing out soil, stabilizers are effective in limiting movement. This reduces the need for filling materials or slabs. Various types of soil stabilizers have been used throughout history, with the Romans being among the first.
Today, various methods can be used for soil stabilization. One of the techniques is to fortify the current soil. This will strengthen the load bearing capacity.
There are also stabilizers used for managing dust or destroying them. Waterproofing soil stabilizers aid in conserving the soil’s strength. This is done by shielding the surface from water.
Soil stabilizers come with various additives like calcium chloride, lime and cement. There are also stabilizers that come with a cement-treated base. This can enhance the quality of the soil. These cement stabilizers are constructed from water, cement and pulverized soil.
Usually the stabilizers are inserted in the soil via a pump using 50 to 200 lbs of pressure psi. In some cases, high pressure and pumps are utilized. The injection depth will vary from 3 to 10 feet. In some cases the depth can reach 40 feet.
The soil stabilizer sizes differ so it can be used on different types of soil. Because of this fact, analyzing the project and the unit together is necessary.
