The pumping unit, which can be removed completely, ensures gentle, continuous and regular flow. This technology ensures that the system is extremely effective in pumping different types of concrete, with aggregates of all sizes, while reducing the number of cycles per minute with the same flow rate, resulting in less wear and extending the life of the machine.
The S valve, an innovation developed by CIFA to improve and simplify maintenance and increase productivity, turned out to be a breakthrough that set the standard in the industry and led to more powerful concrete pumps being developed, making it possible to reach increasingly greater distances.
In developing the S valve, the wear plate was also introduced, which not only improves performance but also extends the life of the pumping unit with fewer parts subject to wear.
CIFA is continuing to invest in an extensive range of pumping units from 30 m3/h up to 180 m3/h, both open loop and closed loop types.
All solutions have been fine-tuned and designed to deliver the best possible performance.
This strategy is implemented by differentiating hopper units, concrete cylinders with varying lengths and diameters for pumping any class of concrete, reducing the number of cycles per minute and, as a result, minimising wear.
By using load-sensing hydraulic pumps, consumption is maximised and maintenance intervals are extended. In fact, this technology uses the flow rate of oil required for each task, saving on energy and cutting down on emissions.
