The Push Floor is an "original" discharger design by Saxlund for squere and rectangular bunkers. It is designed to function with non free flowing and difficult to handle bulk solid materials. The flat bottom floor concept gives many advantages and the Push Floor can be used in a number of different configurations to suit the client's particular requirement. Reliable and accurate metering can be achieved on demand.
The Push Floor is driven by a hydraulic system that moves a number of parallel pusher frames or "ladders" in reciprocating motion across the bunker flat floor. As it does so it digs the stored bulk solid material from the bunker and delivers it to a screw conveyor or other machines. Either the screrw or the pucher frames themselves perform the recuired metering function from the bunker.
The Push Floor discharger is especially suitable for handling heavy, wet and generally non-free flowing bulk solid materials.
The Saxlund International Push Floor is designed for use with square and rectangular flat-bottom bunkers containing “difficult” to handle bulk solid materials.
The heavy-duty Push Floor is specifically designed for heavy wet and non free-flowing materials.
The design eliminates the typical rear wall packing problem often found in rectangular bunkers and the material is always delivered on a first in – first out basis.
The Push Floor can be used to discharge the stored material to any number of feeder/metering systems including screw conveyors, sludge pumps, belt conveyors or chain conveyors.
