When looking for concrete pumps for sale on the market, you may find that the concrete pump price are different, sometimes it has huge disparity. Especially, the price of concrete pump truck is higher than that of trailer concrete pump. If we want to know the reasons why their price are different, we must know the working principles first.
Trailer concrete pumps are construction equipment that transports concrete by pressure through pipeline. It is equipped with special pipelines which can transport the concrete horizontally and vertically along the pipeline. It is an ideal type of existing concrete conveying equipment. Combining the production of ready-mixed concrete with pumping and the use of concrete mixer trucks for intermediate operation, continuous pumping and pouring of concrete can be achieved. It is used for conveying concrete in large concrete projects. Because the pipelines should be placed first, so it is not as convenient as concrete pump trucks.
Concrete pump trucks are machines that use pressure to continuously transport concrete along pipelines. Consists of a pump body and a delivery tube. The pump body is mounted on the chassis of the vehicle and equipped with a retractable or inflected boom to form a concrete pump truck. The concrete pump truck is transformed on the chassis of the truck. It is equipped with a movement and power transmission device, pumping and stirring device, material distribution device and other auxiliary devices on the chassis. The power of the concrete pump truck transmits the power of the engine to the hydraulic pump group or the rear axle through the power transfer box, and the hydraulic pump pushes the piston to drive the concrete pump to work. Then the concrete is transported to a certain height and distance by distribution boom and conveying pipe.
