- For high unloading rate
- Utilizes under-track hopper to dump entire car, then pressure tanks or feeder/airlocks for line charging
- Can be designed with dust capture system at hopper
- Relatively low rate (10 to 20 STPH)
- Utilizes hopper pan: either multiple hook-up or manually moved from hopper to hopper
- Maximum practical hose connection is 8"
- No need for pit under railcar
- Increased convey rate compared to vacuum only (20 to 30 STPH)
- Pressure side either feeder or tank based
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.
