Greaves launches S Valve concrete pumps
Greaves Construction Equipment Business, part of Greaves Cotton Limited, has launched its high capacity concrete pumps, with contemporary S Valve technology. The concrete pumps are available in three models—GCP 5500, GCP 6500 and GCP 8500. Designed primarily for infrastructure concreting operations, these high performance pumps could be used for heavy-duty construction activities in high rise commercial and residential buildings and infrastructure worksites such as tunnels, dams, Bridges, Irrigation, the company said.
All three models are powered by fuel-efficient and emission-compliant engines and they are integrated with contemporary hydraulic systems and components. Greaves Concrete pumps ensure lowest cost per cubic meter of concrete pumped. The machines come with a fully electrical control panel and remote as a standard feature. It can operate both on the piston and the rod side. This helps produce 50-80 cubic metres concrete per hour depending upon the model.
