What Is The Role Of Concrete Pumping in a construction site?
Whether a large or a small project, concrete pumps on a construction site are a common sight. This advanced equipment has made construction activities effective as well as economical. Concrete pumps play a major role in transporting concrete to the most-inaccessible areas of a construction site. Not only does it increase accessibility but also enhances the project speed and efficiency. Concrete pumps are undoubtedly one of the most useful pieces of equipment for accurate concrete placement on any project site.
How does Concrete Pumping Work?
A concrete pump consists of a powerful concrete pumping unit, a hopper, sections of steel and rubber pipeline, and high-strength connection clips, all controlled by a high-tech control panel. Due to their flexibility and versatility, concrete pumps are used to pump concrete for a wide range of applications.
Let’s take a look at the common types of concrete pumps used and their application:
- Line concrete pumps – A line pump is a stationary pump installed on a trailer or truck chassis with steel and rubber pipeline connected to it. Concrete is transported through the pipeline.
- Boom pumps – A concrete boom pump has a pumping unit with a long remote-controlled arm (boom) mounted on a truck. This type of pump uses the boom to transport concrete great distances vertically, or over large cavities (such as open basement works) to exactly where you need it.
Preparing Your Site For Concrete Pumping
For efficient concrete pumping, it is essential to keep your site prepared.
Don’t worry, as setting up the site is relatively easy. Follow these simple steps to keep your job site prepared for concrete delivery:
- Clear the site and the area which pipeline will need to be installed to avoid slips and trips.
- Important: Mark out parking space of around 3 to 4 cars’ worth for the arrival of the concrete pump vehicle and concrete mixer.
- Prepare washout buckets and a large tarpaulin to catch any excess concrete from under the pump’s hopper. This process will ensure no messy wastage of concrete.
