A VIBCO DC-60 12 Volt Battery Operated Vibrator was mounted to the grate of the concrete pump hopper. The vibrator was activated any time material started to build up. It quickly cleared the build up and material flowed easily through the hopper grate. Activating the vibrator at the end of the pour also helped to clear any residual build up on the grate, reducing clean up time.
VIBCO’s Model DC-500 12 Volt Battery Operated Vibrator was mounted onto the hopper grill. It immediately accelerated the rate at which the low slump concrete moved through the grill into the hopper. The vibration was effective enough to allow loading directly from the mixing truck - keeping a constant flow of concrete through the hopper grill.
VIBCO’s DC-1600 12V Battery Operated Vibrator was installed on the screen structure. Now, when a load of sand is dumped onto the screen, the vibrating action of the VIBCO Vibrator easily moves the pile through the screen. Also, large pieces of sand are broken down and allowed to flow through.
A VIBCO DC-3500 Big Bertha™ 12V DC Dump Body Vibrator was installed and virtually eliminated all tailgate slamming. Body hoists no longer needed to be "stretched beyond their stage stop limits" reducing wear and tear, and reducing the risk of roll-over. An added benefit of the Big Bertha™ vibrator is that spreading can be done while dumping, reducing truck time and man-hours, and increasing the number of loads dumped in any given day.
