Heads (also see "RubberHead"
Oztec 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 benefits?? Lower cost…Higher earnings…Superior quality concrete!!
Steel Heads - Standard of the industry for use in most applications.
Pencil Head "For Fill Cell Block"
Mild Vibration Pencil Head - High frequency, low amplitude. (For fill-cell block use; to prevent blowouts). Call 1-800-533-9055 for technical information.
¾" x 12" (pencil head-mild vibration)
Available for all Steel Heads. Rubber tips are factory installed on steel heads. To order, add RT to the head part number.

Oztec's "High Efficiency RubberHead" Outperforms any other type of vibrator
Epoxy coated rebar presents a particularly troublesome problem. Steel heads act like an electric hammer, striking any rebar or forms they contact, over 10,000 times per minute, with a force from hundreds to over 2,000 pounds per blow. Contact with a steel vibrator head of as little as one second can chip enough coating to subject the steel to deep rust. Oztec's patented High Efficiency "RubberHead" vibrator head not only meets DOT non-metal head specifications for protecting coated rebar and expensive forms, but exhibit some very special and unique properties. The High Efficiency "RubberHead" urethane dimpled construction sends strong shock waves off the entire length of the head, with a larger radius of action, producing denser concrete with less voids to patch.
Oztec's patented "High Efficiency RubberHead":
Why the Oztec
"RubberHead" outperforms any other type of Vibrator.
(b.) Oztec's patented "RubberHead" has a large number of openings which allow wet concrete to cool the inner shell. These openings act like "suction cups", which keeps concrete in contact with the entire length of the vibrator head, sending strong shock waves into the mass.
