The first concrete pump was patented in 1932 and has become the most popular method for placing concrete worldwide. Concrete pumps come in three main categories, concrete boom pumps, concrete stationary pumps and concrete trailer pumps. Volume output for concrete pumps range from 25 cubic yards per hour ( 19.11 CM) to over 200 cubic yards ( 152.88 CM) per hour.
With the evolution of the long boom, concrete boom pumps are now able to reach over 70 plus meters and deliver concrete precisely, and with the volume needed to complete some of the world’s largest concrete pours. While reaching over 100 stories, high rise concrete stationary pumps can pump concrete horizontally over 1 mile or vertically to the top of the world’s tallest skyscrapers.
Concrete pumps will never completely replace the need for a concrete bucket or a wheel barrel, but if volume and distance is an issue, a concrete pump is the tool for the job.
