Concrete pump for construction

Concrete pump for construction

Concrete pumps are increasingly used in the construction industry. They allow you to speed up work, increase productivity, and at the same time eliminate the hard and dangerous work of construction workers. Therefore, these devices are very helpful during the implementation of construction, but also other construction and finishing work.

Concrete unit

Concrete plant in Bydgoszcz allows you to rent a concrete pump, tailored to your needs (more here). However, it is important that the length of the boom is not too short. Proper estimation of length is most often not a difficult task.

On the other hand, assessing the distance between where the pump is set up and the furthest point on the site is key to choosing the optimal equipment. Very often, it is difficult or even impossible to move the pump, since it is a large device that needs a lot of space and stable support. During operation, the pump must be properly supported. Therefore, you need to find a flat piece of land where the device can be installed.

The issue of worker safety must also be taken into account, as well as avoiding the loss of materials, due to concrete spillage. On the other hand, if the pump cannot be set up on site then it is necessary to involve workers. Unfortunately, in such a situation in the hands are extended, and at the same time require a huge physical effort.

Therefore, from the very beginning when designing the site, you should take into account the appropriate amount of space for this type of work.

The right consistency of concrete

Concrete plant in Torun produces concrete of the highest quality. The concrete mixture that is delivered to the construction site must have the right consistency (more here). However, do not add water to the concrete mixture.

This would lead to changes in the parameters and properties of the concrete, the result would be a damaged product. Water added to ready-mixed concrete a primarily causes lower strength of the product after hardening. Then its absorbability and porosity increases. By which it becomes much less resistant to the action of low temperatures.

Its resistance to corrosive environments also decreases. In addition, if water is added to the finished concrete Then scratches may appear, having not only a visual aspect, but also reducing the strength of the entire structure. The level of abrasiveness also changes.

When water is added, the concrete surface has a much lower level of abrasion resistance, which is very negative especially for floors.
