I'm analyzing a floor of a power plant for the transfer of a 90ton heater unit. The unit will be moved slowly across the floor supported by two 6'x9' air pallets set to a 27psi air pressure. They are essentially hover crafts, so I'm not sure what load they will be exerting on the floor. Right now I am assuming the worst case load will occur if they cut the air pressure and the full 90tons is distributed to the 2 air pallet footprints. Does anyone have any experience with this?
