Train Unloading Station – reliable system solutions
Train unloading stations are designed for unloading bulk material from railway wagons (aka railcars). At thyssenkrupp we can supply you with complete wagon unloading stations ranging from single to quadruple dumpers, and including all necessary additional equipment, such as
- positioners (aka indexers, side arm chargers)
- hopper (aka bins),
- hopper discharge feeders,
- milling machines,
- wheel clamps
- transfer platforms for the emptied wagons.
If you choose the dumper’s highest available extension stage, wagon unloading will take place fully automatically. Moreover, all our systems are tailor-made to our customers’ requirements. Load-out stations are installed under suitable surge facilities designed to synchronize the material feed rate with the station load-out rate. Train unloading technologies use rail wagon tipplers (aka rail car dumpers) to unload bulk cargo from rail cars. We offer complete rail car unloading stations from single to quadruple car dumpers with fully automated side arm chargers (aka rail car positioners). A rail car positioner shunts the wagons into the tippler and out again once the wagon has been emptied.
That way, you can avoid downtime in material handling, even if minor components are defective. We analyze the steel structures using finite element methods and reinforce them through appropriate measures in the most highly stressed areas in order to make our dumpers as durable and reliable as possible.
