Skat Pack units are devices which convert a given section of transporter into a live (non-accumulating) zone. These zones move the pallet above them at double the normal conveyor line speed. Skat packs provide quick, positive movement of the pallet(s) passing over them. They permit pallet separation of pallets which are close packed in queue, and allow more rapid evacuation of work areas. Pallets held in queue must not rest on skat packs, since these areas are positively driven.
