I am frequently asked by contractors to aid in the selection of shotcrete equipment and acces-sories for many types of shotcrete applications, both wet-mix and dry-mix processes, including concrete repair and restoration, pool construction, mining, tunneling, soil nailing, slope stabilization, and refractory applications. There are many choices of equipment and acces-sories for shotcrete contractors today. Various types of equipment include concrete pumps, gunite (dry-mix shotcrete) machines, mixers, and predampeners. There are many more types of ancillary equipment and accessories that go along with the primary shotcrete equipment used today. Let™s take a look at some of these other tools used to apply shotcrete and why they are important.
