Concrete Pump Commissioned 1 km Underground!

Hindustan Zinc Ltd operates world's largest Zinc Mine in Rampura Agucha, Rajasthan. This is the world's third largest open-pit mine, with a vertical underground tunnel of over 1 km in length.

Shaft Sinkers (Pty) Ltd Mauritius is the mining contractor doing the shaft sinking activity at this site and they plan to go even deeper than the present level. The activity is very critical and requires high technology to ensure safety and precision during the work. The digging activity at such deep levels creates many problems such as water flooding inside the tunnel, etc., which requires special arrangements including concrete grade selection, safety design arrangements, improved equipment specifications, voltage stabilization, etc.

The Aquarius Concrete Pump was selected by the customer to take on the challenges posed by these difficult site requirements. Aquarius has suggested the 1003E electrically driven concrete pump from its product line-up. Special provisions were made in the control panel, pump settings, base frame, etc to meet the stringent site requirements. The pump is installed at a depth of nearly 1 km below ground level. The vertical tunnel bifurcates into horizontal tunnel, making substations at different points. The pump supplies concrete over a horizontal distance of approx. 30-40 meters presently, to the hopper of the shot concrete machine for application on the tunnel walls.

Kudos to the Design and Service Team for this awe-inspiring installation!!!



AQUARIUS announced its tie-up with ELEMATIC Oy, Finland in bC India Conexpo show 2014.

Elematic is a world-leading manufacturer of equipment for precast applications viz. hollow core slabs, walls, panels, molds, etc. The co-operation agreement is for development and supply of Batching and Mixing plants for the precast industry. Elematic will provide their state-of-the-art technology to AQUARIUS for manufacturing of Twin-Shaft Mixers and Tower Batching Plants. Furthermore, Elematic will include Aquarius’ Batching and Mixing plants into their offering for the Indian market and later on for selected markets globally.

AQUARIUS launched the new Concrete Pumps & Batching Plant models at the AQUARIUS stall in bC India Conexpo show 2014.

AQUARIUS is launching a high capacity concrete pumps’ range. This range will feature pumps, viz. 1410 D and 1400 HPD+ with a dual advantage – Higher reach in vertical pumping blended with high pumping output. The newly launched Concrete Batching Plant, model MP 19 will provide a site based compact solution for production of quality concrete. The plant has a latest & advanced technology planetary mixer with facility of discharging concrete directly into the concrete pump. This methodology brings cost savings by shortening the process viz. from production to placement of concrete. The plant is equipped with the state-of-the art Microprocessor based control system – RT SMART.

Shri. Manohar Parrikar, Defence Minister of India visited to AQUARIUS stall in bC India Conexpo show 2014.

“The Aquarius Concrete Pumps and Batching Plants exhibited are very techno-savvy,” commented Mr. Parrikar. “I am impressed to know that these equipments are used in the making of the border roads and are working in the most difficult terrains and climates. The new tie-up will also enable Aquarius to provide equipment for faster construction of residential and other projects.”
The precast application requires the thinking through approach considering the material flow movement and advanced systems for quality products. The Batching Operation as well as precise material handling and automation are the key parameters in the precast plants.

AQUARIUS 703 D Concrete Pump is used for a Bridge Project in Gowal, Kangra Dist. Himachal Pradesh, the concrete had to be pumped over 200 meters across a difficult hilly terrain comprising of uneven and downward slopes. This prestigious project of the Himachal Pradesh Government needed a very compact concrete pump with high efficiency. AQUARIUS 703 D model with its low maintenance cost and high fuel efficiency was the oblivious choice for this application.

The concrete batching plants launched viz. Mobile Batching Plant MP 21 & MP 24 are of a unique compact design with high mobility. These plants have been designed keeping in mind the requirements of small sites that do not require high concrete production rate and need faster installation and shifting time.

The 20 meter Concrete Boom Pump is the third product launched. This is a preferred product for the RMC industry. This truck mounted boom pump is designed for smaller reach jobs, where there may be a restriction on set up area.

Achievement in RMC
The new SP 60 Batching Plant has become a hot selling proposition post bC India, with many installations across the country. Jakhotia Readymix Concrete a franchisee of Birla Shakti Concrete has recently produced 624 m3 concrete, from the SP 60 plant, in a span of 20 hours. This feat was possible with dedicated efforts by their Top Executive, Mr. Yaswant Mishra, I.K.Purohit, Sunil Dandotiya, Natwar Daga, O.P.Jakhotia, G.D.Bajaj and team.


concrete pumps
Aquarius has launched new model of concrete pump viz.703D. 703 D is the smallest and most fuel-efficient pump in Aquarius range. This model is aimed at the contractors who find the 40 m3/4 cylinder engine design too big & uneconomical for their needs. This is a rugged and fuel efficient pump in the 700 series. The 3-cylinder engine concrete pumps have the smallest towing length in this class and are very easily maneuverable. Moreover, a high cylinder diameter of 200mm ensures use of higher size of aggregates, as available in various parts of our country.
