BR 87-50T loading aggregate direct from Trucks to Rail car

 

Astec Bulk Handling Solutions have recently installed a BR 87-50T railcar loader in North America to load crushed aggregate direct from the truck to railcar. Prior to the installation, the American company had used a front loader to load the railcars. This was time consuming, inefficient and expensive. After the installation of the ABHS unit, throughput has increased extensively, the job site is safer with less pollution, noise and fumes and operating costs have decreased notably with further cost savings possible once an efficient truck feed cycle has been established.
