CIFA concrete pumps:
Belsky Group is the official importer of CIFA concrete pumps to Israel.
CIFA is one of Europe’s leading companies in concrete technology in general and concrete pumps in particular.
The Italian company has been manufacturing concrete pumps for over 50 years, and celebrated 90 years of activity in 2018. Since 2008, CIFA has been part of the Chinese group ZOOMLION – one of the world’s leading construction technology groups.
In 2019, Belsky Group introduced 37-meter CIFA pumps in Israel for the first time. Later this year, carbonated 45-meter and 47-meter pumps will be introduced on a 32-ton truck.
Committed to innovation – CARBOTECH
CIFA is the leader in innovation in concrete technology and the only manufacturer of carbon fiber pumps.
Carbon is a lightweight and much stronger steel solution – CIFA’s carbon pumps come in higher and lower weights than all competitors. In addition, CIFA’s carbon pumps are equipped with the most advanced technologies, including software that prevents the pump from overturning – safety is in first place.
Italian Manufacturing – STEELTECH
At the company plant near Milan, Italy, CIFA manufactures, in addition to the CARBOTECH series, also steel pumps, the STEELTECH series. All pumps of this series are manufactured to the highest standards in Europe, and the pumps guarantee high performance and satisfied customers.
All of the pumps in this series have dual piping manufactured by Italy’s CIFA subsidiary.
Reliability and competitiveness
In 2017 CIFA, as part of the ZOOMLION group, launched a plant in China, which produces reliable pumps at extremely competitive prices. All pumps manufactured in China are delivered to the company’s plant in Italy and installed there, while undergoing the most rigorous quality tests.
Important things to know about concrete pumps
Many construction sites, whether residential, commercial or other, as well as infrastructure projects of various types, often face problematic terrain, especially when it comes to the initial stages of the project, before the skeleton is built and before the structure erupts.
In such a situation, different tools and measures often need to be used in order to make certain parts of the project possible and thus be able to move on. So at this point, concrete can be cast, both in the basics and beyond, a concrete pump must be used.
Concrete pump is a means that is used today with quite a few construction sites, so that the concrete can be conveniently moved where access is limited. Since ordinary means cannot always be used for this purpose, it is customary to use pumps which will move the concrete so that the need to use less convenient means can be avoided, so no manpower is needed to do so. With the help of the concrete pumps, a whole will also come to where they intend to use it.
How concrete pumps work
The pumps are mounted on concrete trucks that lead it from the factory to the construction site. In some cases the concrete will come ready, in other cases the truck will move the various components and during their travel time their mixing will be done quickly, so the construction site itself says, the truck will already arrive with concrete ready for work.
Once the truck reaches the site, it places “legs” for balance and stabilization of the pump and in this way also allows it to increase the base area it is working on. After properly and safely positioning the truck, then the piping containing pipes of different lengths is lifted and they are the ones that are supposed to spill the pipe. The angle of the pipes can be controlled and controlled using a set of signs. Importantly, the tubes can be stabilized in various shapes so that they can reach a wide range of angles, small and large.
Other parts of the concrete pump, including the oil pump intended to exert pressure to operate the pump (but not for the pump itself), there is a turret which is the point of connection between the lever and the pump and as mentioned there is the lever responsible for the concrete pipes reaching the place they want to lead them. We can find concrete trucks with cranes with different arms, between three and six, and the length of the cranes ranges from 16 to 63 meters. This allows the pump to be used at various construction sites, even when the situation on the ground makes it difficult.
All the concrete comes from a basket that is on the truck, usually between 400 and 500 liters, from where the pumping system draws it through a special pipe.
As we mentioned, the whole system can be activated by a remote controlled system, which allows us to ask questions about connecting the truck engine to the oil pump, controlling all the functions of the levers and the pumping system, as well as a command and control system for the feet of the pump.
How to choose a concrete pump correctly
In order to choose a good, professional concrete pump system, we need to pay attention to both the manner in which the pumping is carried out, the safety level of the pump and the truck in particular, the size of the basket containing the concrete, as well as the pipes and legs. When talking about the length of the pipes, you need to consider what angles they can reach during the process.
It is also important to address the question of how the mixing process is carried out and how it fits into the performance of the pumping and supply work.
