What pumps do I need for my job?

The pumping equipment required to service your project will be dependent on a range of factors, ie.

  • The distance concrete needs to be pumped;
  • The mix of concrete that is to be pumped;
  • How far the equipment needs to reach;
  • Where the pump can set up on site – if there is uneven ground, overhead wires or other obstacles, if road closures are required;

Our qualified personnel will review your project’s needs and assess your site’s conditions to determine the most appropriate equipment for the job. 

What is a Line Pump?

A Line Pump comprises of a hopper to receive concrete from a concrete agitator. Pistons push the concrete from the hopper through a combination of pipes or hoses that have been attached to the Line Pump along the ground to where the concrete is being poured. Line Pumps can be mounted on a trailer (for pulling behind a truck), permanently fixed on a truck body or mounted as stationary pumps on legs (used generally in long term applications such as high rise buildings). Both high-pressure and low-pressure versions are available. High-pressure pumps are needed for pumping long distances whilst low-pressure pumps are used in instances like spraying pools or walls or filling core block walls.

What is a Boom Pump?

A Boom Pump is a truck mounted concrete pump with an unfolding boom permanently attached. A permanent pipe runs from the hopper along the length of the boom with a series of swiveling bends allowing the boom/pipe combination to unfold or extend. A boom pump enables concrete to be pumped over obstacles or to great heights or depths. We supply boom pumps ranging from 18-52 meters.

Can concrete pumps be washed out onsite?

Yes. We are able to provide you with the right equipment to do so.

Can you pump concrete into an area with very limited access?

Yes. We can help with choosing the right pump for your needs.
