PALFINGER MARINE has developed a complete system for skidding and securing of containers on board SOV's. The system is operated by a radio remote control unit (wireless).
The container skidding system is operated by hydraulic cylinders. This ensures low maintenance costs and smooth operation. Each line is fitted with two hydraulic cylinders (one on each end of the sliding line) connected to the sliding line for pushing the skidding wagon and container.
Each hydraulic cylinder has a pulling force of 3-5 tonnes. With a friction coefficient of 0,2, it manages to push loads of 15- 20 tonnes each. By using two lines, cargo with up to 40 tonnes can be pushed. The container skidding system can move cargo at a speed of around 6-12 m/min. Each push wagon can be placed anywhere along the sliding rails. The carrier is easily connected to the sliding line by pushing down a handle.
PALFINGER container skidding systems offer:
- Operated by hydraulic cylinders (each line fitted with two)
- Skidding length according to customer’s specification
- Push cargo of up to 40 metric tons
- Move cargo at 6–12 m/min
