Epiroc modifies concrete sprayer8 July 2019
Sweden – Epiroc has made some changes to its Meyco ME3 concrete sprayer. The upgrades are to the conveying system, the water system, switching cylinders, the telematics system (Certiq, for Epiroc) and the boom base/turret.
According to global product manager Brandi Kossub, the major upgrade is to the boom base. Larger interlocking teeth in the gear box should mean less wear and tear during rotation.
Regarding the other upgrades:
- All pumps/hoses now connect on the same side, which is more efficient for the operator when cleaning
- The conveying system has switched from hoses to steel pipes, which should make the concrete flow more even, with less pulsing
- Other upgrades have brought the rig more in line with the rest of the range, making it more service-friendly
