How to Transport and Place Concrete the Right Way ?

After mixing, it is very important to transport the concrete and place it at a site as quickly as possible so that the mixing doesn't get dried or segregated. So, let's have a look at the some of the best tips for concrete transportation and placing.

If the concrete isn't used soon after mixing, the mixture might set. One must be careful while transporting and placing concrete.

The mixture should not be bumped while being transported. Within 30 minutes of adding water, the concrete should be filled into the shuttering. Make sure that while placing the concrete, the formwork alignment is not pushed out of position.

When pouring in the concrete, ensure that the height is no more than 1m. If it is more than 1m, then make use of chutes./p>

During slab-concreting, start placing the concrete from one corner of the framework. If the slab is sloping, then always start the work from the side of the slope and add less water into the concrete mix.
