Extend the life of your railcar dumper by upgrading to rolled T end rings. Protect your equipment and rolling stock by conversion to breakaway dumber car clamps, UHMW wear strips on your blocking and addition/upgrade of buffers for railcar dumper rotation.
Upgrade to a dual, triple or quad wheel trunnion design to increase your end ring, rail, and trunnion wheel life. Innovative design minimizes downtime through quicker and safer maintenance.
Improve your safety and availability with drive and hydraulic upgrades. Options include: raising dumper drives units to track level, converting to dual drives, installing a spindle operated dumper latch, relocating hydraulic manifolds and check valves to the rear side of the dumper, and moving hydraulic power units off-board.
From upgrading individual sensors to a complete electrical, instrumentation and controls (EI&C) package, many upgrade options exist to maximize throughput and ensure smoother operation. Improve railcar dumper system diagnostics and/or make advanced controls more operator friendly.
