FAQs About Concrete Vibrators for Sale
What does vibrating concrete do?
- When concrete is initially poured, thousands of small air pockets and bubbles are formed beneath the surface. Concrete vibrators vigorously shake the concrete, removing the trapped air and packing aggregate particles together to increase the density and strength of the concrete.
When do you vibrate concrete?
- Concrete consolidation should occur as soon as possible after the concrete is placed. This is to prevent honeycombing, the forming of air pockets, which weakens the structural integrity of your concrete.
Can you over-vibrate concrete?
- Concrete can be over-vibrated, although under-vibration can pose more serious structural issues. The recommended time for concrete vibration is 5 to 15 seconds per section or until air bubbles stop rising to the surface.
