The latest innovation in grouting, the Handy Grout HG-9 grout pump, includes a cast assembly and polyurethane hopper. This grout pump design maximizes two important features, durability and weight. The HG-9 grout pump's cast assembly ensures a durable design free from excessive welding and its polyurethane hopper ensures lightweight and easy cleaning. The HG-9 grout pump's horizontal piston ensures a self priming pumps through its heavy-duty ball check manifold system An in-line pressure gauge allows the operator to monitor the efficiency in relation to the thickness of the slurry used for the application. The simplest grout pump, the Airplaco Handy-Grout HG-5 is an innovative design that allows contractors to pump grout directly from a bucket of material. The HG-5 grout pump is a popular choice for contractors who would rather not use a hopper or for those who prefer to use off-the-shelf grouting materials bought by the bucket. The HG-5 grout pump is heavy duty--built to last. For a little more power, Airplaco offers the Handy-Grout HGA-50. This grout pump uses an air power source making it suitable for mid to large grouting jobs. The HGA-50 pumps grout up to 50 cubic feet per hour and allows contractors to adjust the pressure for control over the pump's output.

GROUT MIX DESIGN: HANDY-GROUT GROUTING PUMPS
The grout to be pumped in the Handy-Grout should be one part Portland or masonry cement to one or two parts fine, screened masonry sand. The mixture should be a thick creamy consistency that will not allow the sand to separate from the cement. If a liquid mix is desired, it is recommended that a straight cement water grout be used. An admixture, such as Bentonite clay, can be used for more lubrication or if separation is a problem. Mixtures of straight Bentonite and water or gypsum plaster may also be used along with a wide variety of other high viscosity slurries.

Note: Max particle size is 3/16". Some pre-blended grout are not pumpable.

Example - Sanded Grout Mix
Any pumpable grout mix must have these three characteristics, namely:
1) Have a smooth creamy appearance
2) Be the color of the cement used (usually gray)
3) Be just wet enough to be pour-able
A suggested starting mix is as follows:

1 - 94# bag Cement
1-1/2 to 2 C.F. Fine Masonry Sand
5-1/2 to 6 gallons of water

Mix the cement into the water to obtain a uniform slurry, then slowly add sand until the mix just begins to lose the cement color. Adjust the water to compensate for the wetness or dryness of the sand to get a pour-able grout.
The shape, size and gradation of the sand will determine the amount of sand the above mix will actually hold. The ideal sand for pump-able grouts is round as opposed to sharp and angular.

The addition of a high-speed 30 gallon mixer sets up a related model--the HGA-530. This grout pump and mixer combo allows the contractor to be fully self-sufficient. Contractors start with dry material which is added to the mixer with water and dropped into the built-in air-powered grout pump for delivery through the grout hose and nozzle.
