Truck-Mounted Boom Concrete Pumps Level 2 NVQ

NVQ Level 2 Truck-Mounted Boom Concrete Pump training is designed for beginners and experienced individuals who operate the machine. NVQ Level 2 Truck-Mounted Boom Concrete Pumps course is primarily conducted to evaluate the overall performance of learners whilst working in a construction environment.

The objective of the course

The primary goal behind conducting the CPCS course is to access the competence of candidates while operating Truck Mounted Boom Concrete Pumps. Relevant training relating to receiving and discharge of materials at the workplace is imparted to learners.  Truck mounted boom concrete pumps deals with a diverse range of vertical as well as horizontal reaches. The booms are placed at a length of twenty and sixty-three meters.

What is meant by the term Concrete Pumps?

Concrete pumps are the massive machine that is meant to transfer liquid concrete via pumping. These machines are broadly classified into two namely:

  • A remote-controlled robotic arm that is fixed to a truck and similar heavy units powers up boom concrete pump. They are best suited for huge construction projects since it has the capacity to pump at a larger scale.
  • The line pump is yet another concrete pump that is attached on either a trailer or truck. These pumps are also referred to as a trailer mounted concrete pump. They take advantage of flexible and steel concrete in order to place hoses manually. Line pumps are used in a wide range of applications like placing concrete for swimming pools, pavement and surface slabs.

Apart from the above-mentioned, Rail-mounted concrete pumps are utilized for construction of tunnels and mines.

Earlier wheelbarrows were employed to transfer concrete from cement mixer to formwork. Buckets were also used to carry concretes. It required a considerable amount of time and labour. Back in the year 1927, eminent German Engineers Max Giese and Fritz Hull proposed the innovative concept of pumping concretes via pipes. Concretes were pumped at a height of approximately thirty-eight meters covering a total distance of twenty meters.

Challenges faced by concrete pump engineers

There are numerous obstacles encountered by concrete pump engineers since it is heavy, corrosive and is thickened if it is left intact. Normally, piston pumps are harnessed to create huge atmospheric pressure.

Some of the benefits of using concrete pumps are as follows:

  • Concrete Pumps is indeed one of the best ways to place concrete at the workplace instantly
  • They are ideal for inaccessible spots
  • Specialized concrete pumps would constantly reduce labour and only minimum handling is needed as they are fixed at a specific place.
  • It saves over-head expenses, energy and man power as well
  • Concrete pumps are not vulnerable to harsh climatic conditions

Majority of the manufacturing companies offer concrete pumps for rent. However, prices for each pump differ based on the location and volume of competition in a particular spot.
