Concrete pump (truck-mounted concrete pump) is a type of construction equipment, which constitutes a device for pumping concrete mixture mounted on the vehicle chassis.
This unique type of construction equipment has long occupied a prominent place in the construction sector. Its main task is pumping and supply of concrete, both in horizontal and vertical directions. The concrete transported in the course of incessant supply (breaks should not be more than 30-40 minutes - after this period concrete starts to thicken) is used to fill in large volumes - foundations, inter-floor coverings, walls and tunnels, etc.
The very process of pumping concrete is usually based on the action principle of piston-type single-acting pump with valves of forced control (however, there are also vacuum-operated concrete pumps). On average, the maximum height of the mixture supply is from 20 to 65 m, and the maximum horizontal distance is 200-300 m (on relatively large distances, the mixture is delivered through a special track of additional concrete-conveying pipes) .
The boom of a truck-mounted concrete pump consists of several elbowed sections, and, depending on the model, it can be from 10 to 100 m long (typically - 22-64 m), and ends with flexible trunk-like hose 4-8 meters long. To provide the necessary stability during operation with expanded boom, truck-mounted concrete pumps are equipped with hydraulic outriggers.
