The BVG-110 aluminum butterfly gate is used in PTA service, where compressed air or nitrogen is introduced into the railcar through the blue fluidizer pads to “fluff” the material that has compacted during shipping in order to expedite unloading of this particular product.
Gravity Discharge Gate
The 28″ x 48″ steel gravity discharge gate has one of the largest gate openings in the industry today. We also provide a variety of other gate sizes and types.
Swing Away Bulk Head
The LRD Swing-Away Bulkhead offers shippers a safe, easy-to-operate, and cost-effective solution for rail transportation problems. The swing-away door design reduces the threat of injury associated with traditional restraint systems. It can be operated by one person, providing significant savings on manpower expenses. The LRD Swing-Away Bulkhead also is lighter than other bulkhead dividers for boxcars, meaning that rail cars can carry more freight. Nearly maintenance free, the AAR-approved system adapts to all load configurations, reducing en route damage. The Andersons can modify your existing rail cars or provide you with rail cars equipped with the LRD Swing-Away Bulkhead.
