Benefits of Buying a Concrete Pressure Pump

concrete pump trailerNowadays, the concrete pump market is on the rise throughout the world. The main reason is that after the epidemic, many countries need to maintain the stable operation of national economic order, ensure people’s living standards, speed up infrastructure construction and improve the productivity, safety and quality of some projects, including real estate projects. In addition, the increasing labor cost and the growing emphasis on the shortest construction time have also increased the demand and market share of concrete pumps.

What is a Concrete Pressure Pump?

Concrete pump is a kind of machinery that uses pressure to continuously transport concrete along the pipeline, which is composed of pump body and delivery pipe. And the concrete pump is mainly used for the concrete transportation in large-scale construction projects such as high-rise buildings, highways and overpasses, which can be divided into piston type, extrusion type and hydraulic diaphragm type according to the structural form. At present, the use of the piston type concrete pump is the major trend in the construction field.

Working Process of a Concrete Pressure Pump

The high-pressure oil output by the main oil pump is distributed to the main oil cylinder through the sequence valves, which pushes the piston rod of the main oil cylinder back and forth. Because the piston rod of the main oil cylinder is linked with the piston rod of the concrete cylinder, the piston rod of the concrete cylinder will move backwards and forwards under the push of the high-pressure oil. The suction and extrusion of concrete will be carried out. Meanwhile, two swing oil cylinders drive the swing arm, which will result in switching of S-shaped valve back and forth between the two concrete cylinder outlets under the influence of the swing arm.
Through the continuous reciprocating motion of the concrete cylinders and switching of S-shaped valve backwards and forwards, the continuous suction and extrusion pressure of concrete can be realized, so as to realize the whole pumping process.

Advantages of a Concrete Pressure Pump

As a widely used, popularized and well received concrete transportation tool in the construction site, concrete pressure pump naturally has some prominent advantages:

  • High degree of mechanization, saving construction cost
  • Strong transportation capacity to speed up the construction progress
  • Long distance transportation, not affected by road conditions
  • Strong mobility
  • Low noise and pollution

To Buy or to Rent a Concrete Pump?

For individuals who want to enter the manufacturing industry, the purchase of a concrete pump will benefit them a lot in the long run. Most manufacturers are considering to buy or to rent a boom pump ( Click here  to get more details about concrete boom pump). Before making this decision, some factors should be considered such as sites location, work scope, available employees and time to complete the project. Generally a concrete pump make individuals get the upper hand in any projects. They’d better invest in one instead of renting a concrete mixer pump. At the beginning of buying a concrete boom pump, the investment or cost is probably a little high, however the machine enterprises or individuals bought can avoid spending on hiring the labors in the future. The amount of saving will be more and more tremendous over time, and the money can be used elsewhere. …Read more.
