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.
Wet Cast Concrete Compaction
The core competence of BRECON high frequency vibrators.
The wet cast concrete industry worldwide knows BRECON for their smart vibration products and solutions for wet cast compaction. We combine cost efficiency and technology that offers our customers to achieve their goals in product quality and production flexibility.
This results in high concrete strength and high-quality concrete surfaces. Molds and formwork designed to be suitable for vibration are precondition for optimum and uniform introduction of the vibrations into the concrete. Form breakage and welded seam cracks are avoided owing to the small oscillation displacements of the high frequency vibrators. The vibrators mutually influence each other only slightly even if they are only small distances apart. Resonance phenomena and amplitude magnification are kept to a minimum the vibrations can easily penetrate insulating layers.
Thanks to many years of experience in external vibration applications, BRECON has the necessary know-how to equip any production installation with the right vibrators. Advice about correct vibrator location and about accessory such as frequency inverters and radio controlled distribution boxes for rational plant operation are naturally also part of the service. This does not just apply to large size formwork, but to all forms in which concrete is to be rationally compacted, to pipes, manhole rings, and stairs or in vibration stations of carousel production.
