How to Choose the Trailer Concrete Pump?—Questions to Ask before you Buy

For some concrete construction, the work site is limited, and then the small concrete trailer pump is the ideal solution of these situations. The Trailer concrete pump has the characteristics of compact structure, which is suitable for the small house concrete pouring, and can be the replacement of large volume moveable arm pump. Daswell provide the different models trailer concrete pump can pump reach different distance vertically and horizontally.

This article will introduce from three aspects: 1. Can this pump handle the concrete mixture? 2. how far do you want to pump? And output rate? 3. How to Maintain the concrete pump?

Can this pump handle the concrete mixture?

If you have your own gold-standard mix designs, you’ll need a pump built to handle them.

Some pumps are multipurpose machines that can accommodate a variety of mixes while others are engineered for specific mix types. Generally, the maximum aggregate size the pump can accept will govern the type of material it can churn out efficiently. Pea-rock pumps, for example, are designed to pump cement-based mixtures containing a 1/2-inch top aggregate size, such as repair grouts, shotcrete, and self-leveling overlays. Other line pumps can handle higher-slump concretes containing larger coarse aggregate (3/4- to  1/2-inch rock). These models are better suited for placing concrete slabs and other structural elements.

In order to choose the suitable concrete pump, you need know your concrete material, and the max material aggregate size, which can decide the material type produced. Concrete mixes with larger aggregates may be too coarse for some pumps to handle. Proper mixture consistencies are essential. For example, for the high slump concrete containing large coarse aggregate(3/4 to 1/2 inch rock),these models are better suitable for placing concrete slabs and other structural elements.

How Far do you Want to Pump? What’s the Output Rate?

Before you buy the concrete pump, you need know the pump specification table, know the output rate( the unit is m³/h) and the max pumping horizontal distance and vertical distance. Some models can pump the concrete 125m³/h, the horizontal distance can reach 1500 feet, horizontal distance can reach 400 feet.

So, don’t waste money buying high-capacity pump than you need or can handle. If you just lay the thin cement-based layer, this situation you don’t need high-capacity pump.

And you need use pump with high pumping speed.

What’s more, remember that that the max output volume and delivery distance is just theoretical, these capacities will vary depending on factors such as hybrid design, operating conditions and diameter and length of the pipe used.

How to Maintain the Concrete Pump? Is it Easy to Maintain?

To keep the stationary concrete pump in the best operation condition, which depend on many factors, including the simplicity of the piston/valve design, the number of worn parts, and the accessibility of components that require regular maintenance or cleaning.

Some manufactures equip the one-shot lubricating system to simplify the maintenance, so that the operator can have a rapid maintenance. For the convenient cleaning, please choose the Please the hinged or removable hopper and hinged discharge manifold, which don’t need special tools to disassembly. To ensure the equipment can have a long service life, you need choose the pump that the spares are made of excellent wear-resistant material, such as hard chrome plated pump cylinders and forged steel pistons.
