RAIL BOX WAGON UNLOADING AGGREGATES
Unloading box wagons using unique, purpose built equipment comprising of 360 deg wheeled or tracked excavators with power turn clam-shell grabs and elevated cabs, with the geometry of the boom and dipper specifically designed for this purpose.
Grab sizes can vary from 1.25 m³ to 4.5 m³ and because of the power turn we are able to offload from any angle as opposed to a conventional excavator having to sit directly face-on, reducing off-load time.
Offload times range from 300 - 800 tph depending on single machine used, or combinations of machines that can increase this rate as required.
Material can be offloaded to ground, hopper or transport as required.
After grab cleaning, box wagons have a residue of no more than 0.04% of net weight.
