Features

Form Sets

Horizontal flare form sets are fabricated from heavy-gauge steel for durability and a long service life. Ease of operation is engineered into the equipment. The open top simplifies pouring and vibration results are readily visible. In addition to making standard tongue and groove joint flares, the form sets can be used to produce bell and spigot joint flares with the use of optional, easy-to- attach bell ends. A channel is provided for external vibration, and vibrator mounts are available upon request to meet individual customer requirements.

Besser also offers a complete line of vertical flared end form equipment featuring support legs on the smaller diameters.

Jackets

One-piece horizontal flare jackets (or outer forms) utilize heavy–gauge steel reinforcement for years of dependable service. Tapered sides facilitate product stripping. Jackets are equipped with easy- to-operate adjustable locks to simplify the use of the jacket and ensure production of the highest-quality end product. 

Cores

Solid tapered cores (or inner forms) incorporate machined skirt sections for proper stripping from the end product. With the release of two locks, the core is ready to strip using a hydraulically activated stripping mechanism to free the core from the cured concrete. Guides inside the core facilitate its removal by fork truck.
