The type and working of concrete pouring equipment
Posted On: 06/03/2019 | Posted by: Haomei Concrete Pumps
Concrete mixer and pump trucks are vehicles having devices to pump the ready mixed concrete,transported by concrete mixer trucks, to sites through its pipes and hoses at construction sites.
There are multiple types of electric concrete pump. The list includes mobile concrete pumps, stationary concrete pumps, truck mounted concrete pumps, and truck mixer concrete pumps.
The working principle of concrete pouring equipment:
Control panel with built-in high/low pressure selector switch
Installation of operating panel at the eye-friendly and easy-to-operate position. Ensuring reliable pumping work. Changeover from standard pumping to high-pressure pumping can be performed with only one operation.
Piping elbow with wear-detect slit:
A long elbow with a wear detection hole is equipped at the bend part of boom concrete piping.
Flow of fresh concrete was improved and pipe resistance was decreased.
Front outriggers:Two-stage telescopic front outrigger is adopted for easy and safe installation.
The type of concrete pouring equipment:
A mobile concrete pump consists of both a concrete pump and a placing boom which is mounted on a truck chassis. The booms can vary in size and the advantage of this type of concrete pump is it can be deployed quickly and deliver concrete to any area within the range of the boom.
Stationary concrete Pumps
This type of pump is mounted on a trailer and concrete is delivered to the relevant area via a separate pipeline which is attached to the trailer. The pipe is then attached to a placing boom which allows the concrete to be placed with precision.
Truck mounted concrete pump
Fixed concrete pump can be mounted onto a truck chassis without the boom. The benefit of this is that it allows you to reach places out of the boom’s range.
Truck mixer concrete pump
Both mobile and static pumps will source their concrete from large hoppers, but there is also the ability to have the supply of concrete itself be mobile. Mixer trucks exist which also have a concrete pump and boom, allowing for full mobility.
Advantages of concrete pumps
As previously mentioned, concrete pumps offer many benefits over the more traditional method of concrete supply, namely using a bucket and crane system. The two main benefits are that concrete pumps can supply a far greater supply of concrete per hour, and the supply is constant. This means that there are fewer wasted man hours as workers will not have to wait around for the next bucket of concrete to arrive by crane.
Using a separate boom means it’s also possible to place the concrete exactly where it is needed, meaning lower labour costs. Also by having a dedicated concrete pump, the crane which would have otherwise been lifting buckets of concrete can now be used for other jobs.
Finally, mobile pumps mean a far quicker setup time. All that needs to happen is the boom must be placed and the outriggers set up and the pump can be delivering concrete within an hour.
