Hopper Car Loading

Hopper railcars feature an open-top, where a product is loaded. After loading, the top is covered to protect the product while it is transported from destination to destination.

The floor of a hopper railcar is sloped, allowing the product inside to be unloaded through doors at the bottom using gravity.

Most applications and situations where cement is loaded into a hopper car have space restrictions where creatively and specifically engineered solutions are required. Hopper car vehicles are the highest of all bulk carrying rolling stock. These heights would exacerbate injuries if a worker were to fall.
