Marcotte shotcrete sprayers are renowned for their high durability for use in industrial and mining applications. "We selected CIFA for its outstanding quality and workmanship when we were comparing other pumping component groups for our new line of wet-process shotcrete sprayers," says Denis Rienguette, General Manager of Marcotte. "The overall design and serviceability of CIFA's pump units is a winning combination. Marcotte shotcrete sprayer units are in use in the harshest environments known in the mining industry worldwide.
