The hydraulic pushing floor fills the material into a horizontal hutch conveyor which is normally connected with an vertical unit. The vertical unit can be executed as a pushing or pulling conveyor depending on the transport material.
Especially for that application the dimensioning of the horizontal hutch conveyor and a perfect coordination with the capacity of the pushing floor is very important. Not only the overfilling of the hutch conveyor could cause problems. Material in the following vertical unit could be compacted which would influence the function of the complete system.
Combinations with horizontal / vertical conveyors are used for biomass extractions from bunkers for wood gazing systems or power plants, material extractions from pushing floor containers with a following vertical filling of a silo or transport systems for pellet mills.
