Volvo & ROMCO Equipment Co. introduced Density Direct to Texas paving contractors at the 41st Annual Texas Asphalt Pavement Association Conference held at the La Cantera Resort, in San Antonio, Texas, Sept. 22 to 25.

Density Direct provides pass mapping, temperature sensing and real-time density mapping over 100 percent of the map, according to the manufacturer.

According to Pat Slattery, paving equipment sales, of ROMCO, the product has been well-received by contractors.

“Whether it’s coming from the manufacturer, the distributor or the salesman, any time you can provide a tool to help make the contractor’s job easier is a bonus,” he said.

Jeff Greene, vice president of Durwood Greene Construction Co., Stafford, Texas, said, “As a contractor, any time someone offers you a tool that will help increase productivity or improve your job performance, you have to consider it. If the Volvo Intelligent Compaction System with Density Direct can show any asphalt paving contractor when he has hit his target density, it would be considered an asset to the roller operator, the job superintendent and the DOT overseeing the job.”

ROMCO Equipment Co., a family-owned business founded in 1961, sells, rents and services equipment for the construction, paving, mining and aggregate industries. They have locations throughout Texas, including Dallas, Ft. Worth, Houston, Austin, San Antonio, Longview, Buffalo, Mercedes and Carmine.
