Power Trowel Blades - Float Pan
Float pans have clip angles for the purposes of attaching it to the blades. For the attachment, lay the pan flat to a surface, turn on the power trowel and use a slow rotation for the blades to engage with the float pans. Once the pan is clipped to the blades, it can be use for floating.
Always start the floating perpendicular to the screeding direction and maneuver the trowel perpendicular to the previous direction. Floating in both directions creates a more flat and leveled finish compared to focusing on one direction.
Consider the speed and the number of passes during the floating process. Technically, the number of passes depends on the concrete slump, the admixtures, the weather as well as the desired finish of the slab. Usually, it takes 4 or more passes to get the desired finish. Always consider using the minimum speed during the start so you can control the direction and movement of the power trowel.
The float pan sizes varies and are sized to fit the power trowel. The diameter can range from 24 to 48 inches and have a gauge from 10 to 12.
Float pans are important because it lessens the bumps and voids on the finished concrete slab, compacts the concrete and aggregates and adjusts the imperfections of the finished slab.
