Floor planers, which is also called concrete milling machines, concrete scarifier or scarifying machines, are widely used in surface preparation.
It creats a much more aggressive effect than floor grinding machines or floor grinders. There are various choice for it, such as electric concrete scarifier, self-propelled surface planers, walk-behind heavy durty floor scarifiers in size 8"/ 10"/12".
It is one of the most aggressive method in bridge deck pavement, bridge deck shearing, the removal of old road surfaces, asphalt milling, removal for the road pavement markings, road maintainance equipment as well as the ground operations of airport runway, parking lots, squares an some other concrete ground. Construction contractors can use different cutting blades or flails on the drums to achieve different level smoothness.
So how to choose the most suitable tools?
Most commonly used tools on scarifier drums are star flais, carbide flails, milling cutters, full steel beams and stars. Each are designed for different surface prep tasks.
TCT flails with carbide tungsten tips
-Cutter body steel material: 40Cr (China type) which equals to Germany steel 41Cr4
-Tungsten tips: YG7 on stars and milling cutters
-Hardness: Averagely, our hardness is around 50 HRC-55 HRC
- Standand stars:
5 stars carbide cutters suits most 8" concrete planers or concrete scarfiers machines.
6 stars carbide cutters or blades, suit most 10" floor planers or concrete scarifying machines.
8 points carbide TCT cutters/ flails suits most 12" heavy duty concrete scarifiers machines.
