What is concrete pumping?
Concrete pumps make it possible to transfer liquid concrete from the mixing site to the exact location it needs to be poured. There are several ways in which concrete can be pumped around a project site. At 3 Counties Concrete, we use a combination of flexible rubber hoses and steel pipes, which allow us to pump concrete up to 200m away from the roadside, over obstacles, up and down stairs and even through houses – all with minimal mess and fuss.
What are the benefits of concrete pumping?
Not only is concrete pumping more efficient than transporting it manually, but it’s much safer and creates significantly less mess.
For a start, pumping concrete requires minimal labour effort. Once they are set up, our pumps can transport 8 cubic metres of concrete in less than 15 minutes – far more effective than a team of workers. This efficiency gives you more time to lay your concrete, allowing you to concentrate on the parts of your project that matter most.
Concrete pumping is particularly effective when you’re working in areas with challenging access (a common problem with projects in built-up areas like London). At 3 Counties Concrete, we go further to overcome this challenge by mounting our top of the range Putzmeister concrete pumps onto 7.5 tonne lorries with the smallest possible footprint, allowing us to squeeze into narrower spaces than many other firms.
Concrete pumping also makes it easy to meter your delivery, helping you to better manage your project costs.
