Airslide® Observation Ports
Simple mechanical design and construction using a cast iron base mounting and cover with steel tee bolt and hold down bar. Rotating the hold down bar counterclockwise permits cover removal. Reverse procedure locks bar against cast integral catches on the mounting. Turning the threaded tee bolt increases or decreases pressure on the cover and the bar against the catches. The cover uses an “O” ring seal made of “Buna N” synthetic material to form a tight seal.
FLSmidth can make available ports constructed of stainless steel and other materials to meet specific customer requirements.
Airslide® Railcar Breather/Filter
The FLSmidth Airslide® Car Breather is constructed of corrosion resistant aluminum and stainless steel for all weather applications.
The breather is mounted on one of the open loading hatches the Airslide® Car and is fitted with lugs to permit secure clamping in position using the hatch cover bolts.
The breather uses a replaceable woven Dacron fabric filter element with high permeability and filtering efficiency up to 300 CFM. Larger air volumes will require additional breathers on the car.
FLSmidth Railcar Air Filters are constructed of high strength aluminum alloy and stainless steel in a formed weather housing.
The railcar filters feature a replaceable polyurethane catridge of high efficiency and permeability that can be washed and reused. The filter element is mounted on an expanded metal cage within the weather housing. Capable of passing 1350 CFM (38.2 cmm) free air at a pressure drop of only 0.6” (15.2 mm) gauge.

The FLSmidth Loading Spout uses a solidly constructed inlet neck and thimble with an integral dust vent connection. Three sections of internal telescopic steel pipe are swivel mounted within the thimble. The telescopic tubing is housed within the external 24-inch (610 mm) diameter ribbed spring-flex duct. The discharge flange connection is lined with a rubber gasket to assure positive surface contact on 20-inch (508 mm) diameter hatches.
Movement is controlled with a motor-operated hoist using wire rope cable. The telescopic spout retracts to a length of 4’ 7-11/16” (1422 mm) and extends a distance of 9’ 3-11/16” (2845 mm) from the inlet connection. Safety chain is provided to prevent over-extension.

Materials of Construction
Fittings are cast throughout their entire thickness with FLSmidth 450, abrasion-resistant cast iron with 475-550 Brinell hardness.
Fittings are generally available in nominal diameters ranging from 4 inches to 12 inches (100 to 300 mm) in size.
Wearbacks are available as integral castings or replaceable bolted units.
Standard end style is plain end for compression type couplings and/or flanged adapters. Cast flanged ends are also available in certain configurations. Consult availability chart below for standard size and configurations.
Fittings are cast of either 356.0 - T6 or SR319.0 - T51 (75-85 BHN). Internal surfaces have a diamond pattern finish proven to reduce wear and streamers. Standard end styles are plain end for compression type reducing couplings, flanged (150 lb. std.) and Victaulic® groove ends available.
Sizes: 3", 4", 5", 6" 8", 10", 12" (75 mm, 100 mm, 125 mm, 150 mm, 200 mm, 250 mm, 300 mm)
Bend Angles: 90°, 60° , 45°, 30°
Decentralized, Economical Dust Control
Uni-Filters are available in six sizes, with varying capacities. Hopper bottom units have a 7" (175 mm) square discharge flange as standard. Discharge devices available are: slide gate, swing gate, trickle valve, and motor operated 8" (200 mm) rotary discharge lock.
Uni-Filters of stainless steel or aluminum can be furnished for special applications.
Multiple compartment Uni-Filters with air valves and timers for automatic operation are available.
