Stationary pump skills
Operators and relevant equipment management personnel should carefully read the operating instructions and master structural principles, operation and maintenance as well as pumping concrete operations.
The ground supporting the stationary pump should be flat and solid. The pump location should not only be convenient for the concrete mixing truck to enter and exit and feed to the hopper, it should also be accessible for the pumping distribution pipe in order to reduce pumping pressure loss. At the same time, it should be close to the pouring site and convenient for power supply and water supply.
In the process of concrete pumping, with the increment of pump pressure, pumping impact may force the pipe to move back and forth. This may result in pumping pressure loss, which can lead to damage of the pipe clamp and aprons as well as other issues.
When construction takes place in hot weather, it is advisable to cover the concrete conveying pipe with a wet straw bag, wet cover cloth and other materials to avoid direct sunlight and prevent the concrete from blocking the pipe.
