Nowadays, massive modern society development has been calling more and more efficient, economical, multiple-functional construction machinery and equipment. For various concrete pumping and conveying problems, among all sorts of solutions emerges a prominent method popular with all customers, which is Concrete Line Pump Truck.
What Is A Concrete Line Pump Truck?
Concrete Line Pump Truck is also named as Truck Mounted Concrete Line Pump, Line Pump Truck, Truck Mounted Line Pump and so on.
A Concrete Line Pump Truck, simply say, is a combination of a concrete pump with flexible pipelines, a concrete mixer and a truck. It is a set of versatile concrete conveying equipment which integrates multiple functions in one, including concrete producing, concrete conveying, transportation and so on.
Concrete Line Pump Truck sends mixed concrete to pumping machine to convey it to any precise target area through flexible concrete pipelines.

For example, rural house building in limited space, urban high building concrete conveying, tunnel constructions of roadways, highways and railways, as well as water conservancy and hydropower projects of bridges, dams and irrigation projects and so on.
Also, benefit from its wonderful mobility, concrete line pump truck is thought as the best solution of frequent site transfer.
Not only work on site, concrete line pump truck can also travel long distance to take part in projects in remote mountain areas without any other accessory equipment.
As the various superior characteristics, its high practicability and its wide application scope attracts numerous investors.
Truck mounted line pump makes modern construction more efficient and convenient meanwhile takes abundant profit for investors.

Main Parameters of LUTON Concrete Line Pump Truck
Types of Truck Mounted Concrete Line Pump
There are types of truck mounted concrete line pumps according power source and functions.
Diesel Or Electric
There are two power sources supporting for concrete line pump trucks, diesel engine and electric motor. Both methods with their own characteristics are widely used in construction projects. More details are in the following table.
Diesel Engine VS Electric Motor
Diesel engine of concrete line pump truck is larger and more powerful than electric motor, whose structure is more complex and not so easily as electric motor to repair.
But it is more economical, powerful and stable than the later. With high adaptation to environment, diesel concrete line pump truck is especially suitable for areas with power shortage.
The structure of electric motor is compact and simple, which is easy to maintain and repair. And without too much noise and air pollution, electric motor is more friendly to environment. As the above advantages, electric motor is also widely used in concrete line pump truck.

With Or Without Mixer System
Some of Concrete Line Pump trucks are equipped with mixers, known as concrete mixer pump truck, concrete mix pumping machine etc., to realize highly efficient working performance through multiple functions integration. For mixers, there are also some options, twin shafts mixer, drum mixer and vertical shaft mixer etc..
If customers need only a pump truck, there are also truck mounted line concrete pump without mixer supplied. This type of pump truck more suits to customers who have already owned a concrete mixing machine or plenty of concrete products supply.
Advantages Of Concrete Line Pump Truck
Outstanding Concrete Line Pump Truck with so many advantages is popular with customers in construction industry. Its appearance makes the fast and efficient working mode of modern construction come true.
- Flexible Construction Sites Transition
- Compact Structure And Pipeline Conveying Methods Reach To All Sorts Of Construction Sites inaccessible.
- Multiple functions integrated in one accomplishing the whole working process of concrete producing and conveying.
- Simple working process saves labor cost and cuts down working period.
- Short returning period of investment
Concrete Line Pump Truck VS. Concrete Line Pump Trailer
The biggest difference between concrete line pump truck and concrete line pump trailer is the movable unit.
Trailer is a frame with wheels pulled by another vehicle, which can be moved in short distance on site.
While, truck mounted line pump is equipped on a truck chassis, which can travel long distance more flexibly to farther construction sites.
Concrete Line Pump Truck VS Concrete Line Pump Trailer

Both are mounted on a truck chassis, which are assembled with multiple functions in one and can be flexibly transferred between sites. By this compact design, they both need no extra equipment and too much labor. So, both concrete line pump truck and concrete boom pump truck are efficient and suitable concrete pumping solutions.
Compared with later, line pump truck is more economical. With compact structure, it is adaptable to many space-limited sites. Moreover, it has more powerful pumping ability than boom pump, which is limited by the robot arm size.
How Far Can A Line Pump Truck Reach?
The longest pumping distance of a line pump truck is determined by the engine power, the pumping direction, the pumping pressure, the material characteristic, etc..
Generally, the average concrete pumping distance of a concrete line pump is 80m to 100m vertically and 1000m horizontally.
Some pumps can reach to 200m vertically and 2000m horizontally.
How Do Concrete Line Pump Trucks Work?
The working principle of line concrete pump truck is similar with a concrete line pump trailer.
It mixes concrete mortar evenly, then conveying the mixed concrete product into the pump system. By high pumping pressure, the pumping system conveys concrete liquid in pipeline and hoses to precise target areas. In this way, concrete line pump truck accomplishes sequentially the whole working process.
All the feeding, mixing, pumping and other mechanical actions are completed by the main diesel or electric power system and hydraulic power system.
Pumping system alternately pulls two hydraulic oil cylinder piston rods through a series of high pressure and low pressure oil, so as to drive the movement of the concrete cylinder piston, and then through the S-type reversing valve, concrete is conveyed out continuously. In this way, pumping process is done.
During the working process, the movement of the whole pumping system are all controlled by the instruct signal from electrical controlling system.
1&2-two main oil cylinders; 3-water tank; 4-the reversing device; 5&6-two concrete cylinders; 7&8-two concrete pistons; 9-a swing arm; 10&11-two swing oil cylinders; 12-the spectacle plate; 13-the distribution valve(S-shaped valve); 14-the discharge hole
Main Concrete Line Pump Truck Parts
A concrete line pump truck is mainly consisted of about five cooperative parts, including truck chassis, mixing system, pumping system, hydraulic system, conveying system, electric control system and some important accessories.
Truck Chassis And The Whole System
A stable and reliable truck chassis is the basic of the outstanding working performance of the whole system. It takes multiple responsibilities for the whole concrete line pump truck, such as transportation, carrying and supporting of all equipment, power supply and so on.
