Walking floor functioning

A walkingfloor, moving floor or sliding floor system is widely used for bulk transport of unpacked goods such as:

  • wood
  • sand
  • household waste
  • potting compost
  • biomass

It is a smart and convenient system, unloading actually goes automatically! The hydraulically controlled floor works the load outwards. The system has several groups of three slats. The total number of floor slats is a multiple of three (usually 21). When unloading the load, the entire floor moves backwards. The first slide causes the rear part of the load to fall out of the bin. Then the slats of each group retract in turn. Since two-thirds of the floor remains stationary each time it retracts, the load stays down during these three slides. After that, the system is back to square one and will push out the next part of the load.
