Putzmeister America, Inc. Announces New .18H LS Pump Cell

Putzmeister America, Inc. (Putzmeister) has unveiled an optional new .18H LS pump cell for its line of truck-mounted concrete boom pumps, which features larger concrete delivery cylinders, requiring less strokes per minute to attain the same output as standard pump cell models.  


“We feel our customers will be really pleased with the pump cell upgrade,” said Dave Wright, special applications engineering manager for Putzmeister. “With the new design, standard concrete output can be achieved at a lower engine speed and reduced strokes, resulting in quieter operation and less wear.”


The new .18H LS pump cell is comprised of 10-inch (250mm) delivery cylinders, which require fewer strokes per minute to achieve a similar output as the nine-inch (230mm) .16H pump cell that comes standard on most Putzmeister boom pump models. Due to its larger main hydraulic pumps, the .18H LS pump cell also offers a higher output capacity at maximum strokes per minute. While the new pump cell offers larger delivery cylinders, the S-Valve and hopper volume have remained the same size.  


Putzmeister’s optional new .18H LS pump cell is available immediately on most 36Z-Meter and larger truck-mounted boom trucks. For more information, call (800) 884-7210.
