Concrete boom pumps
This artilce needs more work. To help improve this article click 'Edit this article' above.
What follows is a set of some of the important factors that should be considered before conducting a search for a concrete boom pump.
Pumping volume or pumping capacity is one of the most significant parameters for this investment. Fortunately, these pumps can be purchased in the huge range of pumping capacity but you need to understand the theoretical capacity is likely to be on the higher side in relation to real-world conditions. The makers mention ideal pumping capacity - which is tested in standard testing conditions - but this may not match real world conditions. It is best to keep a margin of 10% to 20% when calculating or comparing pumping capacity based on the specifications distributed by the maker.
A concrete boom pump is an expensive purchase. It should last several years. Its service life depends, to some extent, on the quality of materials used for making the pump. Components made from lower quality alloys may fail much sooner than expected, resulting in additional investment in repairs and replacement components.
