    Pumpable concrete mixes simplify concrete application by having it applied through a lubricated pumping system, and exits (with minimal friction) through a focussed plug, top generate pressure. The ideal mix of concrete for pumping needs to be mixed to facilitate reliable pumping without undermining the integrity of the concrete itself.

  • THE MIX DESIGN AND PROPERTIES OF PUMPED CONCRETE

    Jan 01, 1976 · A pumpable concrete mix must be able to maintain its consistency in pump and pipeline. Where rapid changes occur in cross-section of the pump or pipe, 2 or at high rates of placing pump pressures as high as 5MPa (5 MN/m ) may be needed, with corresponding severe pressure gradients in the concrete.

    Slump is a measure of concrete consistency or fluidity. Consistency is the ability of freshly mixed concrete to flow. For given proportions of cement and aggregates (without admixtures), the higher the slump, the wetter the mix. Four-inch (4") slump is very common with normal weight concrete and is a good average slump for pumping.
