Railcar loader

November 1, 2006




Cyclonaire's railcar connector with pneumatically actuated lifters streamlines unloading dual-outlet, hopper-bottom railcars. It is designed to reduce the time and eliminate the spillage associated with the job of mating railcar connectors with hopper slide gates. Pneumatic controls allow operators to elevate the material chute from between the tracks, position the unit's adapter plates directly under each slide gate, and mate them firmly against the hopper gates.
