Concrete vibrators – types and applications

Concrete vibrators are specialized tools found on many construction sites. Their use allows for better compaction of concrete and more homogeneous consistency. In today's article, we will describe the operation of various types of vibrating head and present products recommended by us in this category.

Concrete vibrators – types and application

As we mentioned before, vibrating heads are used to compact the concrete mix. However, how does it work? Using intense vibrations, the excess water and air bubbles are released. Thanks to this, the concrete is more consistent, free of delamination and resistant to damage. Internal vibrators are mainly used in the construction industry and investments where the quality of concrete elements is very important. In terms of a drive, concrete vibrators can be divided into those with pneumatic, mechanical and high frequency (HF) drive. Let's take a look at the most popular solutions.

Mechanical concrete vibrators

This type of internal vibrator is perfect when we need more mobility. It is lighter and more comfortable compared to electric internal vibrators. Mechanical vibrators are a good choice for the construction of single-family houses and smaller investments. Their design is based on a flexible shaft, in which vibrations are generated through a flexible spindle and transferred to an asymmetrical eccentric shaft. It is also very important not to turn off the immersion concrete vibrator when it is immersed in concrete. This often causes the internal vibrator to be sucked in, and consequently even its loss.
