S-Valve Unit

12 posts

S-VALVE units in the concrete pump is the heart of the entire pumping unit. It is always integrated with the conveying cylinders. Connected to the hopper with agitator. Regardless of its design it’s job is to separate inside the hopper a concrete flow on pressure side from the suction side. Seen from the design-structure: the S-valve unit is a type of gate valve switching the concrete flow from the pumping cylinder to the hopper-outlet by shifting between the two parallel conveying cylinders.

S-Valve Unit Concrete Pumps

What types of valves are applied?

The most common main shifting-valve in a concrete pump is the s-valve model. It is used by PUTZMEISTER, CIFA, SERMAC, EVERDIGM, JUN JIN, WAITZINGER, KLEIN, COIME, SEBHSA. Second type of the shifting-valve is the ROCK-type valve, which functionally is similar to S-valve principle. Third easily recognizable shifting-valve is the trunk – so called “elephant” pump – a “C” shaped valve designed and used in the BRF Putzmeister machines.
