A rule of thumb is that a compactor will compact 1 inch of material for every 1,000 pounds of compaction force it exerts.
How Deep Does a Plate Compactor Compact?
A plate compactor is a powerful tool used to compact soil, asphalt, and other materials in order to create a solid and even surface.
It is commonly used in the construction industry for projects such as driveways, patios, and other landscaping projects.
Plate compactors are designed to apply a certain amount of pressure to the material being compacted in order to create a solid surface.
But how deep does a plate compactor compact? The depth of compaction achieved by a plate compactor will depend on the type of material being compacted, the size of the plate compactor, and the amount of pressure applied by the compactor.
Generally, plate compactors are able to compact soil to a depth of up to 12 inches. However, some plate compactors are capable of compacting to a depth of up to 24 inches.
Asphalt can generally be compacted to a depth of up to 6 inches. The size of the plate compactor is also an important factor in determining the depth of compaction.
Smaller plate compactors are designed to compact soil to a depth of up to 6 inches, while larger plate compactors can compact soil to a depth of up to 12 inches. The amount of pressure applied by the plate compactor will
