Improve unloading efficiency, minimize “carry back” with railside car shakers.
Rapid discharge unit trains – delivering coal to a power generation facility – were not completely unloading. The coal “carry back” was significant and costly. The smart solution, with a quick return on investment, were NAVCO Railside Car Shakers.
NAVCO Railside Car Shakers are permanently mounted vibration systems designed to speed the loading and unloading of bulk material from railcars. Railside car shakers are effective in loosening material from railcar walls during unloading and in material densification during loading. Railside car shakers also facilitate a complete cleanout of railcars – reducing carry back materials and average transportation costs.
Rolling Railside Car Shakers extend to contact and shake railcars as they roll by (railcards do not need to come to a stop during operation). These units feature a contact surface made of composite slider blocks reinforced with heavy duty mechanical tubing to withstand the rigors associated with contacting moving cars and to provide maximum service life. Both stationary and rolling models are available in pneumatic or electric. And they can be operated from a remote location.
