How To Operate A Concrete Pump Safely

Concrete pump is one of the most widely used construction machinery in concrete construction equipment. It can be seen everywhere in our daily life. However, in our daily use process, there are often some wrong operations, resulting in prolonged working hours, speed ​​up machine damage. Today, let’s take a look at the correct use of concrete pump.

The concrete transfer pump should be placed on a flat and solid ground, and there should be no obstacles around it. After the outriggers are lowered and adjusted, the body should be kept level and stable.

The pumping pipeline of the concrete pump should be supported and fixed, and a wooden pad should be set up between the pipeline and the fixed object as a buffer, and it should not be directly connected with steel bars or formwork necklaces. Firmly seal, no leakage of slurry.

Before operation, it should be checked and confirmed that the bolts of all parts of the concrete pump are not fastened, the protective devices are complete and reliable, and the control switches, adjustment handles, handwheels, control rods, cocks, etc. of all parts are in the correct position.

The thickness of the pipe wall of the conveying pipeline should match the pumping pressure of the concrete conveying pump, and high-quality pipes should be selected near the pump to ensure that the pipe joints, sealing rings and elbows are intact.

The concrete pump should be equipped with cleaning pipes and cleaning supplies.

The concrete pump should operate continuously for pumping concrete. If it has to be pumped temporarily due to interruption of material supply, the downtime should not exceed 30 minutes.

When the conveying pipe is blocked, the reverse pump operation should be carried out to make the concrete return to the hopper. When the reverse pump cannot remove the blockage several times, the pipe should be dismantled to remove the blockage when the pump is unloaded.
