In a little over 10 years, the company has established itself as the leader in theconcrete pumpcategory.

Putzmeister Stationary Concrete Pumps are world renowned for their vertical and horizontal pumping capability. These pumps have not only set, but also broken their own world records on a regular basis. The Guinness World Record for the tallest vertical pumping of 606 set by Putzmeister at Burj Khalifa remains unbeaten.

When concrete is pumped upwards, many tons of weight build up in the pipelines. With every kilogram, the pressure on the connections between the pump and the line increases. Back in the 1960s and 1970s, 180 meters was the vertical pumping limit. Putzmeister worked through these years to find a solution and break past the challenges. In 1976, Putzmeister’s automatic sealing ring solved the problem: the higher the pressure in the delivery line, the better the right seals it. In addition, the ring ensured watertightpipes, so that concrete could continue to flow smoothly even at heights of several hundred meters. Now an industry standard, the automatic sealing ring continues to be developed by Putzmeister to help our customers scale new heights.

The automatic sealing right passed the practical test during the construction of the television tower in Frankfurt in 1977, concrete was pumped successfully to a height of 310 meters.

Putzmeister’s team of experts can help you achieve the distance you need – every time.

Putzmeister’s concrete pumps are known for their reliability, robustness, ease of operation and maintenance, and long service life. The pumps are manufactured with fewer components as compared to other OEMs, this results in lower costs when service is required.
