Guide for Pumping Lightweight Concrete Concrete ...

1992-2-1  Better pumps and a better understanding of lightweight aggregate properties have made it easier to pump lightweight structural concrete. Pumping this material efficiently, however, requires a team approach that involves the design engineer, general contractor, pumping contractor, concrete producer, aggregate supplier and testing lab.

Pumping Structural Lightweight Concrete Concrete ...

THE LIGHTWEIGHT CONCRETE MIX. The first word of caution is that the concrete mix, no matter how well it is designed, should be field tested to confirm its pumpability before the project starts. One difference between the mix proportions of lightweight and normal weight concrete for pumping is in the amount of fine aggregate used.

Lightweight concrete

Pumping lightweight concrete can be achieved, but care needs to be taken so that the concrete mix doesn’t separate. For pumpable mixes it is usual to use a natural sand, i.e. not to have a lightweight aggregate for the fine portion of the mix and to have a high workability so that increased pump friction and blockage is avoided.

Lightweight Concrete for Pumping Concrete Construction ...

Lightweight aggregates are inherently porous, due to their method of manufacture, and will absorb greater amounts of water then conventional concrete aggregates. At atmospheric pressure this absorption may vary from five to 25 percent by weight for different lightweight aggregates; under the pressure exerted by pumping it can be considerably more.

Line length: Concrete being pumped through a line experiences friction with the internal wall of the pipeline. The longer the line, the more friction encountered. For longer pumping distances, the use of smooth-walled steel pipe can lower the resistance. The length of hose used at the end of the pipeline adds to the overall line length as well.

2014-10-9  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.
