The reason why vibration technology dominates the market is that modern vibration can consolidate almost any kind of concrete. Vibration can be adapted to a wide range of changing parameters.
The compaction of the concrete using vibration is largely unaffected by the concrete consistency, temperature or timing of the processes. The compaction process can also be adjusted by controlling the vibration frequency, intensity and time.
With a well designed vibration equipment the concrete mixture can be chosen freely in order to ease the upstream processes like mixing, transport and pouring.
Even the noise issue has been significantly reduced since about 1990 by numerous innovations. The biggest step forward was achieved by using frequency inverters and evidently through the BRECON innovation of synchronous high-frequency vibrators.
Compacting ICF from the outside
The revolutionary solution for the compaction of concrete in insulated concrete forms (ICF).
The BRECON ICF COMPACTOR allows you to compact the concrete in insulated concrete forms from the outside.
Concrete compaction, even when building with ICF, is obligatory in the building industry. The problem of building with ICF is to induce the vibration energy into the concrete without damaging the styrofoam form by a too high concrete pressure or by cracks.
The ICF COMPACTOR consolidates the concrete through the outside surface of the ICF wall. The large board transmits the compaction energy in a wide area. That avoids both above mentioned risks. In addition areas like the space underneath a window opening or corners can be compacted without any problems
Overall the BRECON Surface Compactor speeds up the production time, making it the best choice for compacting ICF.
