Concrete pumping involves machinery that transfers liquid concrete through pumping. The concrete pump revolutionised the construction of large high rise buildings as it can reach great heights effortlessly. The concrete pump operates by drawing liquid concrete into a cylinder while the other cylinder simultaneously pushes its concrete out into the discharge pipes. Geelong Concrete Pumping focuses on small and large jobs for residential and domestic projects as well as civil, commercial and multi-level buildings. Dry hire of concrete pumps is available along with wet hire if experienced and skilled operators are required to successfully complete your project.
Some concrete pumping projects conducted by Geelong Concrete Pumping include binding layers, blockfill, civil construction concrete pumping, commercial concrete pumping, driveways, earthwork projects, floors, footings, form filling cavities, foundations, grouting, high rise construction, laying slabs, multi-storey projects, pier holes, pool concreting, residential concrete pumping, restricted access work, shotcrete, slabs, stairs, subdivisions and walls.
The concrete pump has multiple versions including the line, mobile boom and high rise concrete pumps. Line (or stationary) concrete pumps use different length pipelines that mount onto a trailer reaching wherever the concrete requires to be placed. Line concrete pumps are useful for small residential projects like pools along with pouring concrete for high rise buildings.
Mobile boom concrete pumps are mounted onto a truck with access to tight and high locations as the boom reaches heights of 40 to 50 metres. Mobile boom concrete pumps are useful as they can arrive at a project and pump concrete quickly to the desired area within the range of the boom and minimal labour requirements. Concrete boom pumps are used when line concrete pumps cannot reach the tightest and highest spots.
High rise concrete pumps, as described by their name, are useful for large commercial or industrial projects that are high rise construction, restricted access work or multi-story projects.
Prior to concrete pumping, cranes were originally used to lift large buckets and skips of concrete to the desired area. One crane could only lift one bucket of two cubic yards of concrete at a time. Now there are many advantages to pumping concrete instead of this crane and bucket method.
Pumping concrete is a quicker process than lifting buckets of concrete via cranes one by one. Pumping concrete also creates a constant flow of concrete to the desired area and the pipelines can be positioned wherever they are needed. This ensures that liquid concrete is easily and well distributed rather than having to distribute a two cubic yard mound of concrete over the desired area. Pumping concrete consequently lowers labour costs and time.
