Concrete is one of the most common building materials. It consists of aggregates combined by cement or concrete paste. The strength and quality of concrete depends on the materials and its process.
This means it hardens from reaction with water. The smallest portion of the cement paste is in the range of micrometers, while the large ones (concrete paste) or the aggregate range to several centimeters.Thus,to build good quality concrete, it should have the exact water and cement ratio.
Concrete pumps or concrete boom pumps are tools used for transporting liquid concrete through pumping.

Most engineers prefer concrete boom pumps in larger construction projects because they are more efficient in pumping at very high volumes. This saves more time and effort and considered as the best alternative to other larger truck-mounted boom pumps.
There are two primary types of concrete pumps. The first one is a trailer-mounted boom pump. These tools are attached to a truck, which utilize a remote-controlled robotic arm or boom to place concrete with pinpoint accuracy.
The second type is truck-mounted pump, also referred to as a "line-pump or trailer mounted pump." These large tools require specialized rubber or steel concrete to hold hoses that are manually linked to the outlet of the machine. The hoses are attached together and lead to wherever the concrete needs to be placed. There are also custom made line pumps that can be used for lower volumes such as sidewalks, swimming pools, and single family home sites or ground slabs.
