VIBCO SVRL-6500 High Frequency Pneumatic Vibrators vibrate precast bridge form sections to produce superior concrete strength and quality
An equipment dealer for a large precast concrete company contacted VIBCO. The precaster was preparing to pour very large bridge form sections and needed assistance with the selection and placement of external concrete form vibrators. The strength and finish of the concrete needed to be perfect - with absolutely no defects requiring parging, patching or cutting.
A VIBCO Vibrators concrete vibration expert visited the precaster's location to examine the forms. He determined that VIBCO SVRL-6500 High Frequency Vibrators were best for the job. He also instructed the precaster on the proper locations and vibration durations to get the best finish.
The result was perfectly formed concrete bridge sections that required no hand finishing. The general contractor for the bridge project was completely satisfied with the product and indicated that he would contact the precaster for future work.
The VIBCO SVRL-6500 produces a hefty 7,200 lbs of force and 10,000 vibrations per minute (VPM). It consumes 58 CFM at 100 PSI and produces 98 dB on A-Scale at 1 meter. If noise is a concern, an alternate model, the VIBCO SVRLS-6500, is available and produces just 80 dB on A-Scale at 1 meter.
