Concrete Pumps Reach Record-Breaking Heights at Burj Khalifa

Jul 20, 2015  In April 2008, three trailer-mounted pumps reached the current world record for vertical concrete pumping. At the construction site of the Burj Khalifa, the world;s tallest building, concrete was pumped to a record height of 606 meters (m). A strategically designed concrete pumping system made the final conveying height a reality, as the concrete flowed through several stages up the 828
