TITLE  
Air-operated microsilica pump
ARTICLE
Conventionally, microsilica is transferred into the truckmixer drum by a submersible pump attached to a hose. It is a two man job with attendant risks due to usage of the truckmixer ladder; the moving drum; cable and hose tripping hazards; and manual handling of liquids and equipment.

Tarmac Northern North Area (Concrete and Mortar) has solved this problem by developing (in conjunction with Derwent Measurement Ltd) an air-operated diaphragm pump with 110 volt remote control facility.

Features include:
• one-man operation
• pump located in plant (operator in batch cabin)
• quick release couplings.
