HI my name is Ruth and I live near the Colorado River in Arizona.  I was just getting started with papercrete information before I was involved in a very devastating auto collision.  Wanting now to build a aquatic rehab center for people with spinal injuries  (I am good but it took a while and I now know what we need).   I have been saving paper and making connections with people who will supply paper.  I need a tow mixer and expertise/experience.  It shocked me to find that that much needed experience is "retiring".   I don't want to be left out of the loop before I can even get into it.  I have an acre and great water.  Buildings and a  GREAT Vision.  Papercrete is an important part of that vision.  Would anyone even remotely interested please contact me.   Ruth  dr_ruth_ross@yahoo.com     I don't do facebook.  Very old school.

I suggest you look into a diaphragm mud pump.

They have a Briggs and Stratton type motor turning, through a built in reduction gearbox, a large crank that cycles a connecting rod up and down.

The bottom of the connecting rod is fixed to the center of an approx. 20" diameter reinforced rubber sheet diaphragm.

The pumping chamber is on the bottom side of the diaphragm and has an inlet and an outlet each running through flapping rubber one-way valves so that when the rod pulls up on the diaphragm it will suck in through the suction valve and when the rod pushes down on the diaphragm it will expell through the outlet valve.

It will pump sticks, leaves, sand, gravel, mud, and any other kind of debris that happens to be small enough to fit through the inlet hose strainer.

I have no doubt it will pump papercrete without hesitation.

We rented them from the local construction equipment rental company.

Fundamentals first.

What is the head rating of the pump?
How high are you pumping?

If the pump is rated at 6' head, and you are attempting 10' you are headed for failure even if its pure water.

if you laid the out pipe on the ground does the mix make it thru? You might need to rent a bucket lift.

Hope it helps.

[papercreters] Re: Pumping Papercrete



A centrifugal pump, like your Honda trash pump can not move papercrete. The slurry is too viscous and will form air pockets. Pumping must be done with a positive displacement pump,

We have not all retired.  I am doing papercrete in Texas and I have been here almost from the beginning, certainly from the beginning of the first papercrete group.  What do you want to know?

[papercreters] Pumping Papercrete



Hello this is Murry in San Marcos TX

Does anyone have experience with pumping papercrete.


I have a 3" Honda Trash pump but have been unable to get it to pump the mix.


The mix is about 100 pounds paper, 10 gal sand, 4 gal clay and 2 sacks of cement and about 100 gal of water in a 160 gal tank.


Any suggestion is most appreciated

Thanks
