M47 with powerful concrete pump for Israel
Three more M47 equipped with Putzmeister’s largest concrete pump, the .19 iLS are ready at Putzmeister Headquarter in Aichtal, waiting for shipment to Israel.
Amar Brothers, one of Israel’s largest concrete pump company is expanding its fleet. For this reason they ordered three new M 47-5 truck mounted concrete pumps at Putzmeister.
All these machines are equipped with the intelligent Low Stroke concrete pump .19 iLS, capable of pumping up to 190 cbm/hr (theoretical max.)
The iLS series was introduced last year at Bauma Munich and consists of a 170 cbm/hr (.17 iLS) and a 190 cbm/hr (.19 iLS) pump. Their improved efficiency makes them more powerful and longer-lasting, and therefore extremely cost-effective.
New suction and delivery unit – for the best performance at a low cost
Fewer strokes means less wear; that much is obvious. But nobody wants to compromise on power. The solution? A large cylinder diameter. But we didn’t stop there – Putzmeister continued to develop every detail of their pumps to optimise their cost-effectiveness. The result is called iLS and has been tried and tested in field tests conducted over the last two years. The new pumps stand out because of their excellent performance, smooth operation and durability, even under extreme conditions such as when working with highly abrasive concrete. The following components contribute to its success:
- The seals on the hydraulic cylinders prevent oil leaks. This increases the efficiency of the core pump by a further 3%.
- The geometry of the delivery cylinder, S transfer tube and hopper has been optimised to guarantee ideal concrete flow, making the suction performance 10% better.
- In combination with the newly designed Ergonic® 2.0 control system, this saves up to 25% more fuel.
- The intelligent hydraulic pump control system ensures that the piston positions are recorded and evaluated during the entire stroke. Synchronous running of both suction and delivery cylinders is guaranteed. The life of the components is extended because the stroke correction is no longer located in the end position, meaning that no pressure spikes are generated.
