At Quikspray, we offer a variety of options for customers looking to purchase a cement pump for the commercial coatings industry. Our pumps come in different capacities, power levels, and sizes to meet evolving industry needs. This allows us to offer something for everyone.
What You Should Know Before Buying
Concrete pumps transfer concrete in its liquid form between areas. The pumps work with flexible or steel concrete placing hoses that bring the concrete to the exact spot you need it to be.
How Cement Pumps Work
Before being placed in the cement pump, the liquid concrete is mixed in a mixing truck with a large, rotating drum. The truck pours the appropriate amount of liquid cement into the hopper of the concrete pump. This hopper constantly churns the concrete, preventing it from solidifying.
The pump then uses its suction and mechanical action to remove the liquid concrete from the hopper, transporting it through various valves, tubes, and/or pipes to get to the desired location. Sometimes, there is a need for auxiliary hoses if the liquid concrete has to cover a longer distance.
Line Pumps vs. Boom Pumps
Most of our concrete pumps at Quikspray are line pumps, as our clients use these much more frequently. With a line pump, the hose sits close to ground level. The hoses are more flexible, letting you navigate them around alleys or other obstacles.
Line pumps are more affordable and easier to use than boom bumps. Boom pumps have long, remote-controlled flexible arms. That arm moves through the air, letting boom pumps reach areas that line pumps can’t.
A cement line pump is more than capable of meeting many industrial applications. This is especially true thanks to the flexibility of the hoses and the various ways you can configure them. Additionally, many of our concrete pumps are on wheels, letting you fill them and then move closer to the desired location if the cement truck can’t maneuver close enough.
Projects Where a Cement Pump Is Useful
Cement or concrete pumps are useful for nearly any project that includes cement. This is true regardless of industry. Some of the most common applications include:
- Slab building foundations
- Building foundations
- Highway overpasses and tunnels
- High-rise buildings
- Parking structures
- Bridges and dams
- Foundations for patios or garden sheds
Why Use a Cement Pump?
Using a cement pump will make it much easier to complete your project. To start, the pumping action means that the cement pours out of the pump quicker than it would with gravity alone. This lets you complete this part of your project in less time, sticking to your schedule.
Additionally, between the pumps and the hoses that you use, it becomes much easier to bring cement to hard-to-reach areas. Pumps can be highly portable, letting you bring them into areas without a cement truck.
If you are not using a cement truck and instead mixing the cement by hand, a pump offers a more efficient alternative that ensures a smooth mixture.
