ITALVIBRAS Electric External Vibrator (Made in Italy)

The ITALVIBRAS Electric External Vibrator is a type of concrete vibrator used in construction to consolidate freshly poured concrete and remove air pockets. It operates using electric power, which drives a vibrating head attached to the outside of the concrete formwork. This creates vibration in the wet concrete mixture, helping to settle the mixture and distribute the aggregates evenly, resulting in a dense and homogeneous final product. External electric vibrators are typically used for large concrete pours and are known for their versatility and ease of use.

Applications of External Vibrator

External vibrators are attached directly to the formwork at certain points. The location of these points will consider the thickness of the concrete and where the points are located concerning the concrete mass. This type of vibrator will have a direct vibration effect on the formwork and the concrete, and by doing this, they will normally consume more power than other vibrators.

 

External vibrators will normally consolidate concrete in a radius of 18 inches away from the formwork. These vibrators can be found at casting yards and precasting facilities where immersion vibrators cannot be used and should be strong enough or located at specific locations so they can move all the formwork at once. External vibration is preferred in situations where columns or heavy concentrations of rebar could result in the tangling of an internal head. These tools have specific applications, such as small pours that require a minimal amount of vibration.

What is an external concrete vibrator?

External concrete vibrators attach, via a bracket or clamp system, to the concrete forms. There are a wide variety of external concrete vibrators available and some vibrator manufacturers have bracket or clamp systems designed to fit the major brands of concrete forms. External concrete vibrators are available in hydraulic, pneumatic or electric power.
