Aathaworld can supply concrete pump, concrete mixer to contractor, we cover KL Kuala Lumpur, Selangor, Klang Valley and other states of Malaysia. The reason why concrete pump and concrete mixer is important because concrete after blend with additives and water, it needs to be mixed with the equipment and pump is to extract them out to do the casting on site. Today, we can explore further on the nature of cement, concrete and the equipment in details. Cement is a substance that can as a binder which to be applied in construction for the purpose of setting, hardening and adhering of several materials; binding will be carried on through these elements and additives. Cement is hardly being utilized by only its own. Mixing aggregates in order to form mortar, these aggregates must be fine aggregates since mortar has strict requirement. Cement shall be mixed with other additives, gravel and sand in order to produce concrete. According to concrete mixer supplier Malaysia, cement has been ranked as the second largest resources consumed in the world in which water is the first. Therefore, its adjacent business line such as aggregates, concrete mixer is being helped by this awesome material’s demand. Inorganic cement is always the first one to be used in the industry of construction, it can be calcium silicate or lime based and it is either categorized as non-hydraulic or hydraulic in term of its characteristic. Cement’s ability to set with water presence determine the characteristic types where non-hydraulic cement does not set under water or within the wet circumstances but it dries, reacted well with CO2 (carbon dioxide) in the air. Concrete mixer supplier in Malaysia also claims that this cement is having high resistance level with chemicals after the setting.
There is another type and this one has more popularity in the industry which we address it as hydraulic cement as well as Portland cement. The name itself already shows its characteristic in which it will turn into highly adhesive after dry ingredients, additives and water are added into the blending to form its chemical reaction process. In accordance to concrete mixer supplier Malaysia who is also expert in cement properties, this cement’s reaction chemically will cause the hydrates of mineral that is non-water-soluble and hence safe from attack by foreign chemical, high durability in water. Therefore, it is possible for this material to set under water or in wet condition, subsequently protecting the finished hardened product from chemical attack. Ancient Romans is the one who found the hydraulic cement’s chemical process, it uses volcanic ash (pozzolana) with calcium oxide (added lime). Concrete mixer supplier in Malaysia says that during that time when Roman found the technology, it was originally called as opus caementicium that later on rename it as cement. It is also used to describe the masonry resembling modern concrete which made up of crushed rock as well as the binder known as burnt lime. The pulverized brick supplement and volcanic ash were then being mixed into the burnt lime in order to extract the hydraulic binder. Concrete mixer supplier Malaysia also recall there are few other names for this finished product, known as cament, cementum, cementum or cement. Moreover, with the advances in technology, organic polymer will be applied as cement in the concrete compound. Any of these names is about the same as well as the elements substitution found in history or now, because it is mainly used as masonry and in construction for different purposes.
Portland cement is still the world largest and most famous cement type that is being recognized until today, in accordance to concrete mixer truck supplier in Malaysia. It is a cement that is being heated up to one thousand forty-hundred and fifty celcius right after the mixing of calcium carbonate (limestone) with material such as clay. The kiln’s heating process is also called as calcination, the rationale behind this is that it forms calcium oxide (quicklime) through the liberates of calcium carbonate from its calcium carbonate. After all these, concrete mixer truck Malaysia explains that it will be then combine other elements in the mixing in order to form cementitious compounds and calcium silicates. “Clinker” is the result of hard substance that formed by the previous process, it will then grounded into powder with little amount of gypsum for the making of OPC (it stands for ordinary Portland cement). This ordinary Portland cement is worldwide most common cement application type that made up to most of the finished products in construction, such as mortar, non-specialty grout and concrete. According to concrete pump supplier in Malaysia, it should be ordinary or so called basic ingredients of the mentioned products, OPC has the highest demand from the market as the concrete. It can be casted, harden and to be used in multiple purposes and shapes, structural element that is load-bearing as well as OPC can presents in white or grey.
Quality concrete mixer and concrete pump are important; it helps to enhance the work efficiency as well as lowering down the overall project cost. Concrete pump supplier Malaysia mentions also there is a need to make sure distance will not burden the logistics cost that subsequently converted into higher cost in overall development. For instance, if the order is made to premix-concrete plant that is 50km away from the construction site compared to the one 5km away, the cost of transporting is nearly double to triple. Construction equipment requires consistent service, maintenance and upgrading in order to achieve highest efficiency rate. Concrete pump supplier in Malaysia does supply, repair and replacement of spare parts most of the time to their customer. Common issues can be found in those equipment inclusive of moving parts wear and tear, the stuck of raw material, corrosion and most of the specialists can do the cleaning, repair and install for the equipment. Some but not all of suppliers can also do milling, fabrication and assembly of those construction equipment. Concrete pump supplier Malaysia does supply both local and oversea brand, from China, Korea, United States, Europe, Japan, Germany to others. Concrete pump is one type of machinery used to carry on liquid concrete transferring by pumping it and basically it is divided into two categories, the one attached to the truck, semi-trailer that we called it as boom concrete pump.
The name used is because it utilizes a remote-controlled articulating robotic arm that also known as a boom to place the concrete accurately. Boom pump is being applied at most large project such as high rise building, mass housing, infrastructure and so on. Concrete pump supplier in Malaysia has good market demand because high volume pumping capability is one of the properties in addition to labour cost saving are the reason why contractor opt to get a concrete pump to carry on their construction project. Another type of concrete pump is the one mounted on trailer or truck, also called as trailer-mounted concrete pump or line pump. If this kind of pump is applied, it will require flexible concrete placing hoses or steel hoses attached to machine’s outlet manually. According to concrete pump supplier Malaysia, linked hoses and lead to the concrete requirement wherever needed. This type is normally used for smaller concrete volume than boom pump, suitable for sidewalk, pool, concrete slab that needs lower volume. In addition, there are also rail mounted and skid mounted concrete pumps although they are not common and most of the time only applied on tunnel and mine, those job sites that are specialized.
