Truck-Mounted Pumps

Truck Mounted Concrete Pumps Are Among The Most Efficient Ways To Manage A Concrete Pour On A Site With Manufacturers Focused On Producing Machines That Are Reliable And Easy To Maintain. Wajih Eit Is Responsible For Cifa’s Concrete Equipment In Africa The Middle East And South Asia. When It Comes To The Business Outlook Markets Across The Mea Region Are Currently A Mixed Bag But There Are Still Some Deals Being Done Says Eit: Recently The Firm Won A Contract In Burkina Faso To Supply 48m And 55m Boom Pumps The Largest In Use In West Africa. The Deal Also Included Mixers And Other Equipment. “There Are Still Some Specific Landmark Projects Going On And Still Moving And We Have The Capability To Close Important Deals [For Markets In Africa] Through Our Branch Office In Dubai” He Explains. Cifa Produces The Full Line Of Equipment Including Mixers Pumps Batching Plants Placing Booms And Concrete Pipes. It Has The Widest Range Of Concrete Equipment In The Market Produced Under A Single Brand Says Eit With Dedicated Products Available For Every Region. Cifa’s Main Series Of Truck Mounted Concrete Pumps Are The Steeltech With Dedicated Models For The Mea Region Including Pump Trucks With 36m 42m 48m And 55m Booms Plus The Newer 61m Boom Launched In Late 2019. (Cifa’s Patented Carbon Fibre Carbotech Range Is In Demand In Europe And Other Markets With Stricter Road Regulations). The Steeltech Range Is Available With Either Open Or Closed Loop Hydraulic Circuits Though Open Loop Is More Suitable For Mea Markets Says Eit – It’s Lower Pressure Uses Fewer Electronics And Is Easier To Maintain And Service As Well As More Robust In High Temperatures. The Range Also Has A Number Of Different Boom Folding Configurations. The Zr Type Is Suitable For The Boom Opening Inside The Buildings And For Concrete Pouring Near The Truck Pump Available With Smaller Booms; The Mid Range Z Type Has Quick Opening Operations For Concrete Pouring Near And Far From The Truck Pump; And The Rz Type Provides Maximum Flexibility By Combining R+Z Solutions Ideal For Five Six Section Booms. When It Comes To Operation The Pumps Feature Efficient Control Systems And The Standard Machine Management System Can Be Upgraded To Provide Additional Control Features Including Diagnostics As Well As Remote Control. The System Can Also Provide Data On The Pump’s Operation Such As Flow. The Trucks Have In Built Safety Systems For Example Requiring That Outriggers Must Be Fully Extended For Full Boom Operation – If They Are Only Partially Extended On One Side The Boom Cannot Be Operated On That Side. The Optional Smartronic Machine Management System Can Actively Calculate In Real Time The Max Boom Extension Based On Outrigger Positioning. Customers Vary Across Markets. In The Middle East 90% Are Classical Ready Mix Companies Plus Some Contractors And Rental Companies. In Tunisia And Morocco The Trend Is Also Towards Ready Mix Companies. Elsewhere In Africa However Contractors Typically Do The Concrete In House Says Eit – They May Have Batching Plants Booms And Mixers. Ready Mix Suppliers Tend To Have High Concrete Expertise And Want To Reduce Machinery Costs As Much As Possible. They May Also Look At Rental Options If The Market Is Slow. In The Life Cycle Of A Pump The Biggest Factor Is Maintenance – True For All Concrete Equipment. “Concrete Is A Very Aggressive Material And The Same Exact Pump Can Go With You For Life Or You Can Have Problems After Just A Few Years. The Difference Is 100% Based On The Maintenance On The Check Ups Parts Availability And All These Things. And This Is A Big Issue Here In The Middle East Region But Also In Africa” Says Eit Adding That Having Dealers In Each Market Who Can Train And Support Customers Is Essential. Correct Operating Procedure Is Also Important Such As Avoiding Vibrations. The Dubai Warehouse Has A Large Supply Of Spare Parts Acting As A Hub To Supply The Mea Region In Addition To The Local Stock Level In Each Dealer’s Warehouse. Truck Mounted Pumps Are The Most Efficient Way To Pour Concrete On Large Construction Sites. Of Course Concrete Truck Pumps Are A Key Piece Of Equipment On Any Construction Site And A Breakdown Or Stoppage During A Pour Can Spell Disaster Given That The Transit Mixers Will Already Be On Site Or En Route. When It Comes To Project Type And Market Demand Eit Says It’s Important To Note That Other Than In North Africa Truck Mounted Pumps Are Not Widely Used With Stationary Pumps Still Preferred. “In Many Markets There Is Still Not The Culture Of The Truck Mounted Pump There Is The Culture Of The Stationary Pump – This Means Also A Lot Of Concrete Pipe And A Small Placing Boom For The Distribution Of The Concrete. Meanwhile In Markets In Mena The Truck Pump Technology Is Very Well Established.” The Chief Advantage Of A Truck Pump Is On Large Sites Where It Can Be Used Laterally Versus A Combination Of Stationary Pump + Placing Boom Which Can Be More Effective On A Tower Project Since It Can Climb With The Tower. Over Time Use Of Truck Pumps Will Become More Widespread Across All Markets Eit Believes. Both Truck Mounted And Stationary Pumps Will Get The Job Done Though Truck Pumps Are Easier And Faster And Their Popularity Will Increase Where There Is Stable Growth And Increasing Demand For Contractors To Deliver Projects With Certain Timeframes.
