Types of Concrete pumps

Concrete pumps are an important part of any construction project. It is used to transport liquid concrete by pumping it to the construction site. 

There are three main types of concrete pumps:

  • Boom or truck mounted pump
  • Trailer, production line or stationary pump
  • Special pump

Boom or truck mounted pump

This type of pump is attached to the truck and USES a remotely controlled articulated mechanical arm (also known as  boom) to precisely position the concrete at the construction site. It is also known as a truck type cantilever pump. Boom pumps are commonly used in large construction projects because they can pump large amounts of concrete in less time. It also saves a lot of labor because of its versatile arm.

Trailer, line or stationary pump

This type of pump is mounted on a trailer and requires steel or rubber hose connection to the outlet of the machine. The hose is usually manually connected or can be connected to another extension hose to reach the proper place where the concrete needs to be placed. The trailer pump pumps concrete at a lower rate than the boom pump and is therefore used in applications requiring smaller volumes of pumping, such as swimming pools, sidewalks and small home concrete slabs.

Special pump

These pumps are specially designed for professional sites such as mines and tunnels. They are also skid-mounted and rail-mounted concrete pumps, but are not commonly used due to their high cost and additional specialized mechanisms.

Advantages of concrete pumps.

Here are the advantages of using a concrete pump:
  1. Concrete pump is the best choice to pour concrete at a faster speed on the construction site.
  2. In inaccessible locations, concrete can be placed easily and more quickly.
  3. The use of specialized concrete pumps reduces labor because less processing is required because the concrete can be placed directly where it is needed.
  4. Saves labor, energy and overhead costs.
  5. Concrete placement is not affected by weather conditions
  6. Reliable and ensures high quality work.
