Rail Tank Car Access System
The main picture above shows a rail tank car access system installed in the Middle East where the loading stations will be used by road tankers and rail cars. This resulted in a hybrid system being designed which allows easy and simple conversion from a large cage to a multi-modal. The remaining photos in the gallery are from a project Loadtec designed and installed in Finland showing a hybrid rail tanker access system.
Many other stations require simpler folding stairs that can track because of rail tank car (RTC) mis-spotting. In countries where the tank wagon design is US-influenced, the safety cage most often is a “halo” type to supplement the crash box fitted to RTCs. However, we are also able to provide three-way adjustable cages that fit over the crash box.
Did you know?
Rail car clearance envelopes will vary widely, depending on the plate designation of the RTC or tank wagon. All equipment must be able to park clear of this envelope.
