Remove residual material from railcars, faster
Loram’s Wagonvac is a powerful, productivity enhancer that quickly cleans and extracts excess material from the bottom of railcars and wagon hoppers using powerful vacuum force. Compared to manual cleaning processes, the Wagonvac has shown that it can be 20 times more productive, reduce manual labor and costs, and return clean rail cars to revenue service much faster.
The wayside-mounted Wagonvac loads up to 50 cubic yards of material per hour from a stationary position, both enhancing productivity and increasing the safety of the single operator from within the unit’s enclosed cab. Stationary operation of the Wagonvac provides seamless indexing from car-to-car as each is quickly cleaned, offers maximum power and airflow, and reduces the cost of track undercarriage associated with less powerful mobile units.
