Pallet Separators play a crucial role in gravity flow systems. Simply put, pallet flow lanes accommodate thousands of pounds of material with the intention of flowing down to a pick face unhindered. The pressure of the rear pallets, what we refer to as “back pressure” places a strain on the front pallet and possibly a safety hazard as the front pallet is removed. The Mallard Engineering Team has developed several unique pallet separator products to relieve back pressure in our gravity flow systems, increasing both safety and reliability.
Back Pressure = .06 x (maximum pallet load weight) x # of pallets
3-deep system, 2,500 lb. load. Back pressure = .06 x 2,500 lbs. x 2 pallets = 300 lbs.
20-deep system, 2,500 lb. load. Back pressure = .06 x 2,500 lbs. x 19 pallets = 2,850 lbs.
