A rail car loader is a system used for loading and unloading train cars with dry bulk materials. Transportation of bulk goods by vessel and train is a cost-efficient way, and many countries have a connection to waterways and railways. NM Heilig has an extensive experience in designing railcar loading installations for the bulk handling industry all over the world. Of course, our services also extend to the production, installation, and maintenance of rail car loaders.
Loading hopper cars or coal flood loaders, which are other names for rail car loaders, are often used during transshipment in ports and dry bulk preparation plants. Example industries include:
The rail cars are measuredly fed from conveyor systems that stop feeding once the necessary filling level in the compartment has been reached. Following, the rail car compartments are loaded one after the other offering continuous loading or a temporary buffer storage. In the case locations of loading at your plant needs to be flexible, we advise mobile hoppers and mobile loaders.
