Greaves Launches Truck Mounted Boom Pump
The Boom Pump is a good investment for large projects like metro, mono rail, airport and other highrise infrastructural and residential buildings. These massive pumps shorten the time duration of project completion, reduce down- time and labor costs. With the huge infrastructural development opportunity in India in the coming fiscal year, the popularity of Boom Pumps is set to increase many fold among builders and contractors. The market for Boom pump is expected to grow over the next 5 years. The major customer sectors to drive the Boom pump market are the mega cities with mass housing projects which need mass concreting in less time. Contractors are realizing that making a smart investment like this reduces their dependency on manpower and meets their project deadline with ease.
GCP 3709Z is the longest Boom pump in its class with a maximum vertical reach of 37 meters and a 4 arm Z fold type Boom, mountable on a 3 axle chassis. The power for operation of Boom Pump is taken from the truck engine through PTO system which eliminates the maintenance and weight of the slave engine.
There are several advantages to having a Z type fold boom. The Z fold Boom is easy to maneuver having increased flexibility and faster horizontal movement. It requires less unfolding height and is highly suitable for working in areas where space is a constraint.
The powerful pumping performance of Greaves Boom pump is due to superior S-valve pumping technology. The S-valve is made of special wear resistant steel and the wear ring and plate are made of Tungsten Carbide which reduces the wear and tear thus ensuring smooth controllable operation. This, in addition to the automatic greasing system increases service life of the pump, reducing the need for frequent need for spare parts.
