What Is A Concrete Vibrator?

Concrete vibrators are used to compact concrete on the construction site and are available in a wide range of shapes and sizes. The smaller concrete vibrators are more efficient and run on battery power. Other concrete vibrators are much larger and rely on electric power. The Total Tools Concrete Vibrator is petrol operated. It can use a 38mm or 45mm Vibrator Poker Claw.

When the concrete vibrator vibrates, compacting is caused by a reduction in internal friction between various concrete particles due to particle oscillation. This results in a dense and compact concrete mass.

Concrete vibrators are primarily used in the construction of roads, trains, and buildings for concrete compaction. By removing trapped air and excess moisture, it compacts newly poured concrete. Its purpose is to secure the concrete in the framework.

This is done to ensure concrete consolidation and prevent product faults. The vibration frequencies of these concrete vibrators can range from 2800 to 15000 rpm.
