Cement Trailer Pumps’ Primary Components
- The S tube
- Refrigeration equipment: There are two cooling methods for trailer pumps: water cooling and air cooling.
- Water cooling: Due to hydraulic system considerations, water cooling will be provided to those pumps with less than 40 pumps to improve the cooling effect.
- Air cooling: The high-temperature oil in the oil tank is transferred to the radiator’s dense pipeline through the hydraulic pump, and then air cooling is performed.
- Electronic control system: The electric control cabinet serves as the core control system for the whole concrete pump system.
- The frame, the support, and the towing mechanism
The towing pump’s axle is a low-speed axle that can only be pulled on the spot for a limited period, not on the road, and a flat truck is required for long-distance towing. When in use, the legs should be raised to prevent the tires from hitting the ground; otherwise, the axle will be damaged due to machine vibration.

What Is The Operation Of A Cement Pump?
Describes the basic operation of a pumping system.
1. The main oil pump’s hydraulic oil output is distributed to the main oil cylinder via the sequence valve, causing the piston rod of the main oil cylinder to be pushed forward and backward, and then the piston of the cement cylinder moves (as a whole) to suck or extrude the concrete into or out of the concrete cylinder.
2. Simultaneously, the swing cylinder drives the swing arm with high-pressure oil, causing the S pipe to alternate between the two cement cylinder exits.
3. The concrete’s continuous suction and extrusion pressure are accomplished by the continuous reciprocating motion of the cement cylinder and the back-and-forth switching of the S pipe, completing the pumping operation.
What Should You Understand About the Cement Pump Quotation?
After receiving the cement pump quote from the manufacturer, you should learn more about the quotation pricing.
1. The client needs to know approximately how much the manufacturing cost is based on the manufacturer’s cement pump quote. The main element is to understand the fixed cost that the client must pay and if any additional variable fees must be paid later. In addition to equipment, variable expenses include freight, installation fees, and servicing fees.
2. It is vital to know how long the pump quotation is valid. After all, the prices of materials and labor for each manufacturing might grow at any moment. Suppose you only want to know the price right now and will have to wait a while before purchasing. In that case, you should know how long the validity period of this quote is and if the price will vary with the cost in the future.
