HydraDump® is an easy-to-install system that converts your existing side dump cars from pneumatic to hydraulic operation. This makes your cars more dependable to use, more predictable to operate and far less costly to maintain.
With traditional pneumatic systems, offloads often complete with a rapid and uncontrolled launch at the top of the cycle. Hydraulic systems like HydraDump avoid this and deliver a smooth, consistent and safe motion throughout an entire offload.
Hydraulic systems also avoid common pitfalls that affect pneumatic systems, such as freezing water vapor that can block air lines. And since HydraDump utilizes standard railroad components, repairs can be completed expediently on the rare occasion they occur.
