Concrete Pump Capacity

Concrete pump promotes the construction business in both large and small construction. Therefore, the requirement of a concrete pump capacity per hour varies. Then what capacities are available and which one should you choose for your projects?

Concrete Pump Capacity

Commonly seen concrete ground line pump capacity:

Concrere pump capacity means that the output of the concrete pumps per hour. Concrete ground line pumps convey and place concrete via pipelines, such as concrete trailer pumps, concrete mixer pumps, and truck-mounted concrete pumps.

Large concrete pump putout capacity: ≥ 50 m³/h (120 at maximum)

The large capacity is ideal for business construction jobs, such as shopping malls, hospitals, parking lots, basements, high-speed ways, subways, waster conservancy, and other high-rising buildings and so on.

Smaller concrete pump output capacity: ≤ 40 m³/h

The smaller capacity is the best choice for medium-sized projects, such as house building in a rural and urban area.

Here are our recommendations for small concrete pump: HBTS 30 – 40

And the recommendations for large concrete pump: HBTS 50 – 90

Commonly seen concrete boom pump capacity:

The capacity of the concrete boom pump is larger than the ground line pump.

Basically, its concrete output can each from 80 m³/h to 180m³/h.

In addition, the boom length of the concrete pump is from 32 meters to 75 meters to cover a larger area.

How to Calculate the Discharge Volume of A Concrete Pump?

In general, the manufacturer will tell you about the details of concrete pump output. However, you may need to change or customize the specific output capacity to meet the project’s requirements. Then how to calculate the concrete pump output?

When the concrete pump is continually operated, and the amount of required concrete mixing vehicles for each concrete pump can be determined according to the following formula: N = (Q1/V) * (L/S + Tt).

N is the amount of concrete blending truck.

Q1 is the actual as well as typical output of each concrete pump sale, and its unit is m/h.

V is the ability of each concrete blending truck, and its unit is m.

S is the typical rate of concrete blending truck, and also its device is km/h.

L is the round-trip range of concrete blending truck, and also its unit is km.

Tt is the total suspension time of each concrete blending vehicle, and its unit is hour.

Will the Motor Power Affect Concrete Pump Mahcine Output?

The motor power of a concrete pump is the prerequisite for determining the outlet pressure and the quantity of the conveyor.

When motor power is set, the increase of the pressure will reduce the quantity of the concrete pump output quantity per hour. On the contrary, when the outlet pressure decease, the throughput will increase.

In order to ensure that the concrete pump not only has a large delivery volume, but also has a certain export pressure and the corresponding economic power, in the design of the concrete pump, the constant power plunger pump is mostly used.

That is, after the constant power value is selected, when the outlet pressure increases, the pump output will automatically reduce, to achieve the corresponding value with the power design.

If you want to achieve both high outlet pressure and large delivery, the only way is to increase the power of the motor.

Therefore, in the new national standard, the concept of the capacity index of the concrete pump (in MPA M3/H units) is introduced.

It is the product of the actual outlet pressure of the concrete pump and the actual output per hour. The larger the capability index is, the greater the power of the motor will be. In this way, the purpose of large displacement and high lift will be fullfilled simultaneously.
