Internal vibration pokers for compacting concrete come in a wide range of types and power sources.

These vibrations travel through the adjacent concrete and cause its constituent particles to move. That movement then releases air bubbles and excess water that travels to the surface. This process of removing voids is critical to ensuring quality concrete. Failure to do so means that the concrete will not adhere to reinforcing structures, may be honeycombed with voids, and have reduced compressive strength - all of which diminishes its integrity.
