For concrete to be strong after it dries, it should not have any air or bubbles when it settles. To remove the air from the concrete, you need a concrete vibrator. You could try doing it by hand but of course it is more tiresome and the results are not guaranteed. For the best results it is recommended that you invest in a concrete vibrator.

Besides ensuring a strong concrete mixture, the other benefits of concrete vibration include; improved bond with reinforcement steel, greater durability of the concrete slabs, and improved product finish. You could be wondering how simple air bubbles can cause damage to strong concrete?

If trapped air is left inside the concrete, the air can expand and contract. As this happens cracks may appear on the concrete which in turn can affect the integrity of the structure. Shaking or vibrating the concrete mixture forces the bubbles to move up the mixture and escape at the top.

There are different types of concrete vibrators available in the market. The choice really depends on how big your project is. The other factors affecting which kind of concrete vibrator to use include the amount of reinforcing steel used, and the type of pour among others.

The most common types of concrete vibrators you will find on sites are handheld concrete vibrators and walk-behind ones that are pushed like a lawnmower. The choice here depends on how big your projects is. Handheld vibrators are also called submerged since they go inside the concrete to cause the vibrations. The plate or walk-behind compactors work on the surface of the concrete.
