In some situations, conventional methods of transporting concrete are not practical or indeed, just not possible. Concrete pumps can overcome these challenges and help to streamline projects. There are three main types of concrete pumps available for hire through iSeekPlant across Australia, designed to suit a wide variety of concrete transportation requirements, and provide unique application methods.
Boom Pumps are commonly used for large scale projects, and involve a crane arm that holds a length of rubber tube attached to an engine on the ground. This long-reaching machine is especially useful for multi-storey projects, where a high volume of concrete is required above ground level.
More suited to smaller scale projects, the Line Pump provides better mobility and is mounted to a truck. Using a worm gear attached to a channel on the truck bed, concrete is efficiently pumped along a length of tubing, but cannot reach the height requirements or the volumes of the boom pump.
Sometimes it’s simply not possible to transport concrete using conventional methods. Concrete pumps are one way to overcome this problem and streamline projects.
iSeekplant has three types of concrete pumping boom pumps available for hire, along with concrete pumping boom pump suppliers in Sydney and throughout Australia.
Boom pumps are often used for large projects, and involve the use of a crane arm holding a length of rubber tube that’s attached to an engine located on the ground. This machine is ideal for projects that are multi-storey, since it can transfer a lot of concrete above ground level.
Concrete pumping boom pumps are hugely popular due to their long reach and ability to stay in one place for the entire pour. This ensures a high level of efficiency, which is why there are so many Adelaide concrete pumping boom pump suppliers available to choose from.
The line pump is better suited for smaller sized projects, and you’ll find that Melbourne line pump suppliers have their pumps mounted to a truck. Line pumps are perfect for when jobs require a large amount of mobility, and concrete can be pumped along the tubing efficiently, although it can’t get as high as when a boom pump is used.
Line pumps are basically pipes on the ground that attach to project sites. They can be used for a variety of jobs from entire foundations or slabs to form filling cavities. This is an excellent option for sites with restricted access, and can be set up at almost any angle.
If you’re browsing line pump suppliers in Perth, you’ll be looking for a pump that can be used on a site where there’s not enough room to set up a boom pump.
