SCHWING Stetter pumps at its best
SCHWING portable concrete pumps are successfully deployed worldwide, wherever vast quantities of concrete have to be pumped over exceptionally long horizontal and vertical distances. In building and civil engineering projects, they are also fast, reliable and economically efficient in handling pumpable concrete under extreme conditions with regards to concrete design, job site and climate SCHWING pump SP3000 has pumped 357,000 m3 of concrete. Concrete grade used are M50, M70 and M80 which were pumped at the height of 200 meters.
SP 3000 pump is equipped with variable flow hydraulic pumps that eliminate the risks of overloading the motor. The variable hydraulic flow optimizes the distribution of the oil volume and pressure of concrete pump and automatically adapts to different pumping requirement or pumping difficulties. The twin hydraulic circuit and soft switching system combined with the open command block “hi – flow”, means low heating of hydraulic oil with almost no loss of power and conservation of hydraulic components.
Grade concrete of M80 was pumped at the height of 200 meters which was quite a challenging task for the team with pumping cylinder with the diameter of 180mm and stroke length 1600mm. This is record breaking pumping in high rise construction with M80 concrete grade.
The concrete used for the project was primarily M80 (80mpa) grade, whereas M50 grade concrete was the requirement for raft foundation of the Spira tower.
Pipe line layout
The concrete pump was placed in the ground level and the pipeline was anchored inside the tower with 75 number of pipes with the height of 200m. The concrete from batching plant (M 1.25 T) was transported using 4 numbers of transit mixer (AM6SHN) and then fed into the concrete pump (SP 3000) for pumping. For the efficient work progress, the clean system components was kept organized near the concrete pump.
