The concrete pump is a kind of machine that continuously transmits the concrete mixture to the pouring work surface along the pipeline. Compared with bucket truck and tower crane, the construction method using concrete pump has the advantages of stable operation, high construction efficiency, good quality, low cost and no pollution to the environment, so it is widely used in the concrete construction of Bridges, tunnels and other engineering projects.
The development history of concrete pumps has hundreds of years. As early as 1907, Germany began to study concrete pumps, which triggered a worldwide boom in research and manufacturing pumps. In 1913, the American Conal invented a concrete pump prototype and obtained a patent, but after the test run, the prototype was shelved and no longer used.
In the mid-1950s, Torkret, a company in the former Federal Germany, invented hydraulic pumps with water as the working medium, which made concrete pumps enter a new stage of development. In 1959, the former federal German company Schwing produced a true fully hydraulic concrete pump, which uses oil as the working medium to drive pistons and valves. The hydraulic concrete pump has large power, large displacement and conveying distance from the rod, which greatly improves the operability of the concrete pump.
Since the 1970s, with the progress of science and technology, new materials, new processes and the application of mechanical, electrical and hydraulic integration technology, the coagulant pumps in various countries have developed greatly, especially in reliability, maintainability, operability and the life of wearing parts. Thus the reliability of the concrete pump is greatly improved. Today, many concrete pumps still maintain the basic characteristics of this design, but in terms of power mechanism and valve improvements.
In the 1950s, China began to introduce concrete pumps from abroad. In the 1990s, began to enter a period of rapid development, at present, China’s concrete pump localization rate has reached 90%, basically replacing imported products, and exported to the United States, Germany, Japan, Russia, the Middle East, South America, Africa and other regions.
