Epiroc is upgrading its concrete sprayer to make it more productive and safer for operators.
Improvements on the Meyco ME3 will also reduce the total cost of ownership for the off-highway vehicle.
Designed for mid-size civil engineering tunnels, the all-in-one mobile concrete sprayer’s constant flow pumping efficiency has been refined and features under-dosage prevention as well as a fail safe conveying system.
“These improvements will lift concrete spraying to an even higher level” says Brandi Kossub, global product manager at Epiroc.
“Besides updates to increase the constant flow of concrete and less pulsation, the new boom base, or turret, makes it more robust, durable and longer lasting. Now, the Meyco family has even more commonalities with each other.
“We work closely with our customers. We talk to people on site to ascertain what they really need and want in the machines, our hands-on experience makes all the difference.”
Including the compressor, the total weight of the vehicle is 11,500kg and has a maximum tramming speed of 18km/h.
The upgrading of the concrete sprayer follows the release of the Teleremote e-tramming option for Simba drill rigs from the company in May this year.
