NPK's Hard Car Unloader Reduces Unloading Time

25 July 2012, at 7:24am

US - The NPK Hard Car Unloader facilitates unloading packed, frozen or hardened bulk products such as DDGS, coke, ash, soybean meal, etc. from hopper bottom railcars.

A two-section hydraulic boom, which mounts on a support framework straddling railroad tracks, or portable system, manipulates a vertical probe that loosens material inside the railcar. Minimal effort of the articulating probe enables the material to flow freely through hopper doors safely, quickly and efficiently unloading the railcar.

The speed and effectiveness of NPK’s Hard Car Unloader is unmatched. Facilities that normally processed 100 to 140 car unit trains in two weeks using six employees can now unload those trains in as little as 48 hours utilizing only three to four employees and an NPK Hard Car Unloader. This is mainly due to the power of the probe; it allows constant mixing and moving of the material from the top of the railcar all the way to the gate. Eliminating the need for personnel inside the car reduces delays and creates a safer work environment.

NPK will have a representative at every start-up to ensure the system is running up to the end users standards. The representative will go over all maintenance, operation and adjustments with all personnel required.
