Transporting and Pumping

Transporting

Transporting the concrete mix is defined as the transferring of concrete from the mixing plant to the construction site

Keep in mind that not all concrete is mixed on the actual construction site and could require some significant travel. This is most common for ready-mixed concretes. The main objective in transporting concrete is to ensure that the water-cement ratio, slump or consistency, air content, and homogeneity are not modified from their intended states.

To ensure speedy and efficient delivery, the RCCMIX team will survey the site to ensure that the transit mixer trucks will have unimpaired access to the site. Among the factors they will consider are ,


The access road and ground condition up to the discharge point should be safe and good enough for heavy vehicles.

Sufficient turning space should be provided for the transit mixer to access and leave the delivery point.

The distances, heights and clearances should be sufficient for moving the equipment.


Pumping



Pumping is one of the most efficient means of pouring concrete.

Pumping is one of the most efficient means of pouring concrete. In many situations-such as in high rise buildings - pumping is the only viable option. At other times, the ease and speed of pumping concrete makes it the most economical method of pouring concrete.
