5 mistakes easy to make during the spray concrete process

spray concrete process

Five mistakes that are easy to make during shotcrete machine for spraying concrete process. Have these mistakes caught your attention?

1. Add too much water

You may remember that when this weak relationship between water and cement ratio is changed, the quality of the concrete will be damaged, resulting in a decrease in compressive strength and durability.

Does your concrete have slump when delivered? This may be due to movement during transportation or the wrong mixture design. The important thing to keep in mind here is that adding water is never the way to go, because it will change the water-cement ratio and it is not a good method.

2. Refuel uncontrollably

Additives play a vital role in the ability of concrete to become the most widely used material on earth. We usually add additives during the mixing process, and accelerators are combined just before spraying. However, what happens if you do not follow the recommended dosage guidelines? Facts have proved that the ultimate resistance of concrete will change, resulting in weak adhesion between the concrete layer and the surface.

3. Forget to clean the surface

A clean surface is essential to ensure the best application of shotcrete, there are two key reasons: first, it helps to eliminate residues, which will improve the adhesion of shotcrete; second, it can remove all loose materials , So that the support work you are doing is on a stable structure.

4. Think you need to increase stress

Many people close the gas collection valve to bring the compressor's flow and pressure to a level they think is sufficient.

It turns out that, in general, the compressor's flow rate is fixed, not variable, which means that all the results they get by closing the valve are that the compressor is less efficient and the load is greater. Important: Do not touch the valve.

5. Think your compressor can't provide enough kinetic energy

Thinking that your compressor does not have enough capacity to perform spraying work, and change it to a larger compressor, you may find yourself in trouble.

One of the main problems caused by switching is the increase in rebound. By spraying the concrete at a speed higher than the required speed, a rebound will inevitably occur.

Remember, today, concrete spraying equipment has been designed to be used by the kinetic energy department. The compressor itself has a predetermined flow rate, and the machine has a nozzle suitable for operation. If you spray at the correct distance, the shotcrete work will not be disappointing.

We have developed full series of dry-mix shotcrete machine and wet-mix shotcrete machine for spraying concrete, output from 1m3/h to 9m3/h, electric motor, diesel engine, air motor and gasoline engine are available options for customization.

If you are interested in our dry shotcrete equipment, please let me know the following demands:

1. What's the project you will use the machine do, for slope protect, or other?

Our dry mix shotcrete machine usually be used in outdoor project, such as bridge repair, swimming pool, slope-protection etc. 

2. Do you need dry-mix shotcrete machine or wet-mix shotcrete machine?

3. What's the output you need?

we have different output capacity for option, 3m3/h, 5m3/h, 7m3/h, 9m3/h, or other you need?

4. What's the maximum particle size of the material, less than 10mm, 15mm, or 20mm?

5. About the engine, do you need air motor, electric motor or diesel engine?

if you like the electric motor, voltage 3 phase, 380 V, 50 HZ is ok for you?
