What Is Concrete Pumping?

It is vital to a construction project because it’s a lot faster and more efficient than a human pushing a wheelbarrow around. During the process there’s a freshly made batch of concrete transported to a specific location on the construction project site.

Whenever there’s a large amount of concrete that’s needed to continue a project’s development, we tend to opt for the use of concrete pumping. Not only is it a lot more efficient than other types of concrete transportation methods, but it also saves a lot of effort.

What Are the Different Types?

When concrete pumping is involved, there are two different types of trucks that you can see at the construction site. One type of concrete pump truck uses a ground pump and the other uses a boom pump.

A ground pump feeds concrete along the ground to be delivered to a specific area on the construction site. Ground pumps are capable of fitting through narrow gaps and can transport the concrete without a lot of hassle or work.

A boom pump is used when a ground pump can’t reach a certain area. Sometimes, a boom pump can be remote-controlled and will use an extendable arm that reaches up over obstructions and houses. 

What Are the Benefits?

There are many benefits to using concrete pumping on a construction project. In addition to the above list of benefits that we’ve discussed, it is also cost-effective. This is because it allows our construction company to easily transport concrete without having to pay for expensive manual labor.

In addition, it helps to create less waste. Using concrete pumping will ensure that you’re only using enough concrete that’s needed for the project and aren’t using a lot more. As a result, this helps cut down on how much waste is created by mixing concrete that isn’t needed.

Also, it is a fast and efficient way to deliver concrete quickly to construction sites that are in need. This means that our customers won’t have to wait a long time for concrete that’s needed for their projects to be finished.

Understanding Concrete Pumping

By understanding what concrete pumping is and how a construction project can benefit from it, you can get a better idea of all of the effort that’s going into your project. It is an extremely beneficial way to transport and use concrete on a project.
