A concrete pump is a heavy machine used for transferring liquid concrete from the source to the place of casting. It is one of the most important parts of any construction project.
Principle of Concrete Pump
A basic concrete pump is designed with a two-cylinder hydraulic pump. It works on the principle of one part drawing the concrete from the hopper or concrete source and the other part pushing it forcefully into the discharge outlet pipe. As a consequence, the liquid concrete starts moving from the source to the casting place. The functionality of which cylinder needs to open to the hopper and which cylinder needs to open to the discharge pipe is fully controlled a valve. The advanced concrete pumps facilitate added functionalities like creating high-pressure to pump liquid concrete at different heights and lengths (according to your needs). It is a must for high-rise buildings.
Different types of concrete pumps
