Railcar unloading 

Railcar Unloading of bulk materials

  • Higher productivity – Using products specifically engineered to connect to the unload gate and funnel material efficiently to the under-track conveyor system allows you to move more material with shorter unloading times.
  • More profits – With faster unloading times, you can move more material and that means increased revenues.
  • Substantial cost savings – Faster and more thorough unloading also means you reduce labor costs relative to the amount of material you’re moving.
  • Reduced waste – Because our products are designed for unloading railcars, you don’t lose material to spillage or airborne dust.
  • Improved safety – Our products eliminate the need to have someone climb under the unloading gate to break up obstructions, which is highly dangerous and reduces respirable dust.
  • Better quality – By protecting material from the elements during the unloading process, our railcar unloading products help you maintain overall quality

Air Cannons


By eliminating obstructions and buildups that restrict flow, your operation can process more material faster, resulting in multiple positive outcomes, such as:

  • More profits – Keeping material flowing at top efficiency and maximum throughput means more revenues and more profits.
  • Improved efficiency – Eliminating obstructions and buildup substantially improves throughput without adding significant labor or energy costs.
  • Safer work conditions – Workers no longer have to climb inside containers or under unloading ports to break up blockages manually.
  • Less wear and tear on equipment – Cleaning and unblocking bulk materials manually requires tools that damage equipment over time, while air cannons use harmless bursts of air.
  • Reduced downtime – Because the air cannon fires at timed intervals, material doesn’t have a chance to build up in the first place, so there’s no need to shut down to remove obstructions
