Can I pump limecrete?

It is not advisable to pump the limecrete as in order to do this you would have to make the mix too wet, and this would cause shrinkage…also, the water content of the Limecrete mix has a major effect on final strength. It should never be mixed so weak that it will flow. An ideal mix will be dry enough for the material to stand without being so dry that it appears crumbly. It should be homogenous. 

We would suggest that it should be mixed and conveyed using a VBT mixer for large quantities, please email us for further information
