The main advantages of pumping concrete are that it can be delivered to site points that are not easily accessible or congested. Pumping delivers the concrete direct from the mixer to the form, avoiding double handling. Placing can procedd at the rate of the pumping output and is not held back by the limitations of the transporting and placing equipment.
Ballut Blocks is fully equipped to supply pumped concrete up to a height of 30m and a maximum distance of 60m.
