Fuel-efficient drive systems are an important lever for ecologically and economically sustainable machine operation. After all, fuel costs are one of the biggest items in the operating cost calculation. In the course of a machine's life, they usually even exceed the purchasing price. At the same time, low fuel consumption automatically leads to less pollution from engine emissions. With ECOMODE and ECOSTOP, BOMAG's developers have created two technology packages that can save several thousand litres of fuel per machine per year.
The higher the efficiency of a motor, the more economical it is. The engine speed plays an important role here. It should not be higher than required for the respective performance. ECOMODE is an intelligent control system that always operates motors in the optimum range — without any loss of performance. It reduces fuel consumption by up to 30%. At the same time, lower engine speeds reduce wear on the drive components.
Conventional rollers work continuously at maximum speed in order to reach the vibration frequency. ECOMODE continuously regulates the engine in relation to the current load at precisely the speed required for the current performance. The vibration frequency is kept constant by continuously adjusting the hydraulic components. This keeps the entire system in the optimum performance range and reduces consumption and noise.
Even when idling, an engine consumes significant amounts of fuel. ECOSTOP shuts the engine down after a defined period of time in idle speed. Of course, taking into account parameters such as temperature, battery, etc. This prevents unnecessary consumption. At the same time the service life of the machine's drive components is extended.
Noise also counts among the emissions that are detrimental to health. This is particularly the case for residents during construction work in urban areas, but even more so for drivers and machine operators. BOMAG machines are designed to work with an extremely low noise level. ECOMODE speed control and ECOSTOP automatic shutdown systematically reduce noise levels even further.
