Placing Boom Options Available
Achieve more with separate placing booms for concrete placement. Separate Placing Booms are typically used on job sites where concrete logistics are an issue due to lack of site access, large floor areas or where concrete is required to be pumped to heights that a conventional mobile boom pump is unable to reach.
Separate placing booms are becoming a more common construction method for placing concrete with today’s construction methods as modern buildings are designed taller, more complex and concrete placement demands grow larger due to the efficiencies separate placing booms can provide on modern job sites.
SCP has a wide variety of mounting options for separate placing booms in which we would be pleased to discuss with you to determine the efficiencies they can provide on your next project.
Placing Boom Applications
Conventional Mast Systems
Conventional mast systems can be installed by initially free-standing on a static base or by being installed through and being supported by suspended slabs. Conventional mast systems can typically free-stand to a maximum height of 20 metres. Conventional mast systems require custom slab penetrations for the separate placing boom system to be fixed to and supported by. Penetrations must be the size the manufacturer requires and must be precisely measured and located to avoid issues on site.
Conventional mast systems can self-climb up through the building or use the site’s crane to climb the mast system. Slab supported installations typically require propping for a number of floors below the mast system. There are minimum floor spacing requirements to prevent damage to the mast system while installed through floors.
Lattice Tower Mast System
Lattice tower mast systems are required to be installed on a static base. Typically the static base is a concrete base installed on ground level on site, however, SCP can provide manufactured bases for installation on suspended slabs or in the event it is not possible to pour a concrete base on site.
Some advantages of the lattice tower mast system are as follows:
- Install through voids as the lattice tower systems are self-supporting
- Install externally from the building
- Install through a lift core
- Service multiple buildings with one placing boom if installed externally from the building
- When servicing multiple buildings with one placing boom, some of the advantages are:
– Design work for 1 x placing boom only required
– 1 x concrete gravity base only required
– No propping required with typical installations
– Reduction in material delivery pipeline costs
– Swing from one building to another without delays or blowing out separate pipeline systems
– Reduction in placing boom climbing costs
– Install larger placing booms such as SCP’s 50 metre and 42 metre placing boom range
– No penetration requirement resulting in programme and commercial savings on the project
- Free-stand at heights up to 54 metres without a building tie – Contact SCP for technical clarifications
Lattice tower mast systems can be increased in heights throughout different stages of the project. One of SCP’s innovations is the development of a self-climbing frame to climb lattice tower systems in a similar method in which tower cranes self-climb. SCP have 3 different types of lattice tower systems available.
Hydraulic Jump Form System Mounting
There are various methods of mounting separate placing booms to a hydraulic jump form system. SCP has many years of experience in assisting with the design process of installing separate placing booms to hydraulic jump form systems.
Some advantages of installing separate placing booms to hydraulic jump form systems are:
- No placing boom penetration requirements
- Less labour required to climb the placing boom, resulting in commercial savings on the project
- Placing boom is not required to reach over the hydraulic jump form system which provides better coverage with the placing boom on site
- Often the hydraulic jump form system is located in a central location which means the placing boom can be positioned in an optimal location
Crane Crawler Carrier Mounting
SCP has a mobile crane crawler carrier that has been designed, through SCP’s research and development, to carry a separate placing boom. Some types of projects that may be suitable for the crawler carrier / separate placing boom configuration may be:
- A requirement for the placing boom to be continuously relocated
- Where setup space for a mobile pump is limited
- Where concrete pumps are required to travel on surfaces that road registered trucks may not be suitable for travelling on
SCP can tow a high pressure stationary concrete pump behind the crawler carrier. We would be pleased to further discuss the advantages of the crawler carrier / separate placing boom mounting option in further detail with you.
