OZTEC

Concrete Vibrators and Rebar Shakers

Oztec Steel Vibrator Heads produce the highest amplitude and centrifugal force, generating the largest radius of influence of any heads available. Energy is efficiently transferred from the motor, via the shaft, to the head, which is all eccentric (vibrating the entire head). Whether combined with one of Oztec's electric or gasoline powered motors and choice of flexible shafts. The results are exceptional, superior consolidation, increased productivity and a process more forgiving of less than perfect vibrating techniques. The Rebar Shaker is another efficient way to consolidate concrete into an ICF wall. The "Shaker" turns your rebar (up to 7/8 inch diameter) into a vibrator. It eliminates the time and mess of lowering a vibrator down into the ICF wall. The Rebar ShakerTM simply slipped over the top of the rebar vibrates and consolidates the wall in 5 to 7 seconds. It reduces the chances of poor consolidation. Oztec Quick Disconnect power units are available in electric and gas powered backpacks.
