Construction – Tunnelling
ACME peristaltic pumps are the ideal solution in tunneling, specially in the removal of sludge after excavation. The waste materials deriving from earthworks include high abrasive content which wear out quickly, and in an irreversible way, the traditional tools. Conversely, the ACME peristaltic pumps are not penalized by extreme work conditions typical of tunnelling: the total absence of valves and the characteristic rubber-made tube where the material is transferred guarantee that there is no contact with mechanical parts, preserving the product from wear. Moreover, the physical principle that characterizes this technology (peristalsis) requires less dilution of the material, which results to considerable water saving. Another use for which these machines are particularly suitable is the dosage of silicates with concrete in order to guarantee an optimal Spritz beton.
