Oregon based KEITH WALKING FLOOR is to launch a new stainless steel moving floor system is designed specifically to enable truck trailers to ‘self unload’ abrasive loads, including wastes, compost and aggregates.
The company explained that the ‘moving floor’ unloader is made of a series of floor slats, which are powered by a hydraulic drive. As the floor cycles through its phases, material is conveyed or unloaded.
Designed to handle a variety of bulk products, the system was said to offer many benefits over conventional tipper trailers. The horizontal unloading action of a moving floor system was claimed to eliminate many of the hazards using tipping trailers to unload products in the field.
Additionally, the manufacturer said that trailers with the system installed can safely unload on uneven ground, with controlled material discharge in minutes.
“The main benefit of the flooring is its longevity,” said KEITH WALKING FLOOR® Europe sales manager Adelbert Regeling. “The steel flooring stands up well to very abrasive materials and handles compactor loading well.”
The new stainless steel floor slat also was also said to be capable of loading/unloading pallets and is forklift compatible.
KEITH is exhibiting at IFAT, Stand B03-204.
