Optional Tremie Boom
A special tip section allows the S 36 X to accommodate up to a 45-foot tremie pipe providing the pipe’s wall thickness is not more than .125-inches. This option eliminates the need to support the tremie with a crane while pumping. The tremie method of concrete placement immerses the pipe in fresh concrete so that the rising concrete from the bottom displaces the water without washing out the cement content. The method is often used to pump caissons.
The S 36 X with 4-section Roll and Fold boom offers 115’6” of vertical reach in standard configuration and 101-feet with the tremie tip section. The key reason a Roll and Fold boom works best for tremie applications is the full 180 degrees articulation at the 2/3 knuckle is on the working side of the boom.
