World’s Largest Concrete Trailer Pump Now Features Highest Engine HorsepowerPutzmeister BSA 14000 trailer pump reveals added power at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2005
STURTEVANT, Wisconsin (March 15, 2005) – CONEXPO-CON/AGG sets the stage for the debut of the world’s largest trailer-mounted concrete pump – the Putzmeister BSA 14000 with its new, larger 630 hp engine.
Incorporated as standard into Putzmeister’s BSA 14000 (SPL 56) model, the more robust 630 hp diesel-powered Cat engine assists in demanding projects. It offers almost 30 percent more horsepower than the standard engine for longer, continuous operation at vertical distances over 1700-ft (518m).
To accommodate the bigger engine, the unit’s appearance changes slightly; however, all other high performance features remain the same. This includes a high maximum trailer pump pressure of 3190 psi (220 bar) and an output of 133 cubic yards an hour (102m3/hr) at peak volume.
According to Bill Carbeau, Putzmeister’s Sector Manager for Telebelts® and Special Products, “The maximum horsepower available on any concrete trailer pump in the world today is 630 hp. As high-rise projects reach astounding new heights and tunneling projects extend to even longer distances, the larger engine will accommodate customer needs for added power and easier pump strokes. This is especially critical in handling today’s tough and special mixes, such as self-compacting concrete and high strength concrete.”
For tackling difficult concrete mixes, the machine is capable of handling pumpable consistencies down to a zero slump, at a maximum 2.5” (63mm) aggregate size.
Other exclusive features of the unit include the field-proven S-Valve, hard-chromed concrete cylinders and smooth free flow hydraulics for more controllable pumping. The unit is also equipped with a large 21.2 cu ft (600L) capacity hopper, standard vibrator and central lubrication.
