The types of concrete pumps

April 7, 2017

A concrete pump is a machine composed of pump body and pipeline, it is usually used for transferring liquid concrete by pumping using of pressure,it is mainly used in residence buildings, Bridges and the tunnel construction.There are two types of concrete pumps. Let us learn more about it.types of concrete pumps

The first type of concrete pump is attached to a truck or longer units are on semi-trailers. It is known as a boom concrete pump because it uses a remote-controlled articulating robotic arm to place concrete accurately. Boom pumps are used on most of the larger construction projects as they are capable of pumping at very high volumes and because of the labour saving nature of the placing boom. They are a revolutionary alternative to line-concrete pumps. The second main type of concrete pump is either mounted on a truck or placed on a trailer, and it is commonly referred to as a line pump or trailer-mounted concrete pump. This pump requires steel or flexible concrete placing hoses to be manually attached to the outlet of the machine. Those hoses are linked together and lead to wherever the concrete needs to be placed. Line pumps normally pump concrete at lower volumes than boom pumps and are used for smaller volume concrete placing applications such as swimming pools, sidewalks, and single family home concrete slabs and most ground slabs. There are also skid mounted and rail mounted concrete pumps, but these are uncommon and only used on specialized job sites such as mines and tunnels.
