Stationary Sanding


A pneumatic truck filled bin provides for both economy of purchase and the storage of dry sand. Transporter located beneath the bin with sanding hose to sandbox provides for a clean, completely closed conveying system. After the bin is loaded, the system then becomes automatic upon demand. The transporter refills itself, flow from transporter to sandbox is controlled entirely at the sandbox location


Expanded Systems

For exceptionally busy yards expanded systems may be required. The illustration shows a system whereby two locomotives may be sanded at the same time. A drop pattern will permit access to all sandboxes. A central filling system from a bulk sand bin, will fill sand dispensing units automatically. Due to space limitations, sand dispensing drums are elevated. Should clearance space be available, the same type of system can be installed at ground level
