In case, you were looking forward to optimizing the concrete pumping operation, you should rest assured that an efficient configuration of the system should be determined. It would be essential to determine the correct line pressure for moving concrete at a specific rate of flow through the pipe. The pipe should be a specific length and diameter.
The primary aspects affecting the pressure of the pipeline would be inclusive of the pumping rate, line diameter, line length, horizontal and vertical distances, and configurations inclusive of reducing sections. Other essential aspects would be the vertical rise, number and severity of bends, and the kind of flexible hose used in the concrete pump pipe.
