What is Concrete Pump Truck

What Is Concrete Pump? 

Concrete pump machinery truck is a heavy duty construction equipment, which uses hydraulic system to continuously transport concrete through pipelines. The concrete pump truck is mainly composed of chassis, boom system, turret, pumping system, hydraulic system and electrical system.


Main brand

Concrete pump manufacturerPUTZMEISTER, SCHWING, SANY, ZOOMLION, CIFA, REICH, SERMAC,  LIEBHERR, XCMG ETC. They also produce shotcrete machine.


Advantages of concrete pumping

  • The concrete pouring is convenient and fast, the pumping speed is fast, and the work efficiency is high.
  • High degree of automation, equipped with remote control, easy to operate.
  • Good mechanical properties and high equipment utilization.


Concrte Pump Boom System

The boom system consists of multi-section booms, connecting rods, oil cylinders and connecting parts.

The boom system is used for conveying and distributing concrete. Through the telescopic boom oil cylinder and the rotation of the turntable, the concrete is directly delivered to the pouring point by the concrete pumping pipe tube and hoses.

Concrete Pump Turret system

Turret system is consists of turntable, slewing mechanism, fixed turret, support system.

The outrigger arm is designed as a box-shaped beam formed by surrounding welding of four high-strength steel plates. The height changes from large to small according to the size of the force. For the X outrigger, it has the advantages of light weight, small deployment space and fast deployment speed during construction.

Support system safety precautions:

The boom must be operated after the outriggers are supported as required.

The outriggers can only be retracted after the boom is folded and placed on the main support of the boom.

In the event of factors that reduce stability, the boom must be retracted immediately.

Concrete Pump Hydralic Pumping System

Hydraulic Pumping system is consists of hopper, S valve tube, swing lever, mixing paddle, boom coupler, pressure gauge and other parts.

The pumping system uses the power of the chassis engine to pressurize the concrete into the pipeline from the hopper, and then the operator controls the boom to send the concrete directly to the pouring point through the pipeline.

Concrete Pump Chassis System

The chassis system of concrete pump truck mainly adopts Mercedes Benz, Volvo, Isuzu, Hino, Mack, SCANNIA, SINOTRUCK etc. 

The chassis part is composed of automobile engine, chassis, transfer case, transmission shaft, etc.

The reliability of the chassis is a crucial link to determine whether the concrete pump truck can work normally for a long time.  As one of the key components of the concrete pump truck, the chassis not only plays the function of transferring and moving the concrete pump truck, but also plays the function of providing power for the concrete pump when it is operating. It also has the function of balancing the stability of the whole vehicle and playing the role of counterweight.

An excellent chassis should have sufficient rigidity to maintain the balance and stability of the vehicle body.

Classification of Concrete Pump

Concrete Pump by folding 

With concrete pump folding type, it usual have R folding, Z folding, Z&R folding.

The R type has a compact structure; the Z boom moves quickly when opening and folding; the Z&R type combines the advantages of the former two and is gradually widely used.

The Z-type, R-type and Z&R types of the boom are mixed and used by different manufacturers.

Concrete Pump type by Boom Placer Length

Short boom concrete pump: Boom length blow 30m.

Normal boom concrete pump: 30m ~ 40m.

Length boom concrete pump: 40m~ 50m.

Overlength boom concrete pump: Over 50m boom length.

Electrical System

The electrical system is a complex system composed of multiple electrical components and electronic modules, which is mainly used to realize the control and scheduling between various electrical components.

The circuit system is usually composed of a microcontroller or other chips. Generators, batteries, motors, lines, switches, fuses, circuit controllers and other parts are all indispensable elements.

The concrete pump electrical system parts including control cabinet, remote control, battery and other electrical components.

The electrical system is the core part of the concrete pump truck and the key to improving the overall performance of the concrete pump machine. Stability, reliability and high adaptability are its unique characteristics. With the continuous advancement of technology, the intelligence and maintainability of the electrical system of the concrete pump truck will also continue to improve.

Concrete pump parts & accessories

Concrete pump equipment parts included but not limited as following.

Concrete delivery line system parts: concrete pipe, elbow and bend, reducer, clamp, seal kits etc.

Pumping system parts: Wear plate, Cutting rings, S valve tube, delivery cylinder, thrusting ring etc.

The development trend of concrete pump

In recent years, the global scientific and technological revolution and industrial transformation are emerging. Under the influence of technology and market factors, the concrete pump industry is accelerating its integration with artificial intelligence, information communication, new energy . The development trend is technology diversification, the simultaneous advancement of electrification, intelligence and networking technologies.

  • Data management: The development trend of intelligent networking of concrete pump will not only provide operator with convenient work, but also improve the safety of concrete pump through the communication and sharing of information and data.
  • Technology diverce: Higher degree of automation and intelligence.
  • Environmental: With the improvement of environmental awareness, concrete pump will pay more attention to environmental performance. Low-emission and energy-efficient concrete pump will be favored.
  • New energy: The application of new energy technology will promote the upgrading of the concrete pump market, and the demand for new energy pump trucks will gradually increase.
