Concrete Pumping

Concrete pumping actually does mean they pump concrete. Being a liquid this substance can be pumped at high volumes and with the assistance of the proper kind of equipment can deliver concrete into very tight places where a typical concrete truck would never fit.

Pumping Services – These pumping services are usually thought of as huge construction company facilities, and are contracted to pump concrete into high rise building construction sites where it is impossible to achieve the same volume of delivery by any other means. However, concrete pumping is also done in any residential, or industrial area where streets are too narrow for large trucks.

Other places concrete pumping services are used would be where a smaller rig can be sent into four swimming pools, sidewalks and where new housing construction needs home concrete slabs. You or someone you know might very well be living in a house that had the concrete floor pumped in by one of these services.

Pumping Equipment – This type is called a boom, they can easily reach 300 meters, and if you have ever wondered how they got concrete into those tall forms for support structures, it was a boom that did it. This equipment does not look all that large when the boom arm is robotically folded up and like a collapsed accordion it lays neatly in place atop a truck that looks much like a large firetruck.
