View Full Version : Peristalticpump hose?

07-14-2008, 08:51 PM
I'm pondering making cement/stucco pump.
Anyone know what type of hose would work the best in this application? Im thinking 1to2".
All I have found Googleing is, it is made of open-cell polyurethane, has a combination of outer fabric reinforced shells with inner “rubber” walls that have a tremendous “memory”.
I will be applying 1” of stucco to the inside and outside of a 30x40x17 foot straw bail building. I don’t want my one arm to be twice as big as my other at the end of summer.

I have been experimenting with am essic progressive cavity pump, I think designed for fire barrier material. It works but I don’t think it will do the 17’ of head needed.
Thanks for any help.

Progressing cavity pump styles come in many flavors, ie. pressure vs volume. Great for moving abrasive/fluid slurries. Pressures to 17 feet of head are 'no chore for a stepper'.

For moving cement based stucco materials and mixing with water, Google up Reed Concrete and Gunite Pumps. Depending on where you are, weekly rental of a pumping system and compressor for a one off job, will greatly simplify your project.

I hesitatate to suggest it, but more than one working gunite machine has been cobled together by those so inclined.

This is what I have actually 2 of them, except for the hose and wands.
I am using a 3/4" hose and I built a wand. I am using air from my shop comp. I think the stator is wore out. If I put my hand over the end of the hose and stop the flow.
I think I am mixing my plaster thin enough. Its not pluging it just has poor flow.

I was thinking of renting something but there is nothing in my part of the province.

Since I have the wand hose and air I think building a parastalic would be quite simple, except for the hose material.
Anyone else?

Delta Rubber sells all kinds of conc. pump hoses here in Calif. I don't know how big a footprint they have globaly though.
Push come to shove You could call and get a hose spec. and go from there.

Yep. I have browsed that site watched the vid too. The guy has some great ideas I like the bobcat mixer.
Hears a pick of his hose. i could order from him but I would rather find somthing in my area.
I’m thinking a smaller version.
I may have to go to our hose supplier and have a look.
