Video: How mortar is mixed, conveyed and placed for finishing applications on construction sites
Mortar machines are among the most versatile equipment on a construction site. They perform the onsite operations of mixing, conveying and placing mortar for finishing applications on walls and floors. The major applications of these machines include plastering where mortar is mixed, pumped, and sprayed for finishing. This covers floor screeding, where screed material is mixed, conveyed, and applied as a layer between the concrete surface and finishing surface (tiles or wooden flooring); shotcreting, where shotcrete material is sprayed with high pressure on a surface, particularly for slope stabilisation, tunnels, pools, and concrete repairs where mortar is sprayed onto a damaged surface. Other applications include pumping and spraying fire protection mortar on steel structures to extend the fire resistance of steel, processing and spraying glass fibre reinforced concrete, injection of mortar material to fill the voids, and delivering mortar to depths for geothermal drilling.
