Push floor

Push floor systems come into play when dry substrates with little fiber content need to be stored and conveyed. Push floors can handle digester substrates such as dry poultry manure or fruit and vegetable waste.

 

Push floor technology can handle all dry substrates that are not free-flowing and do not contain long fibers such as straw.

 

Push floor can be build into a square or rectangular concrete bunker or can be fitted as containerized unit.

 

The Push Floor is driven by a hydraulic system that moves a number of parallel pusher elements with attached push arms in reciprocating motion across the bunker floor. As it does so it digs the stored bulk solid material from the bunker and delivers it to a screw conveyor or other systems.
