Train Rapid Loading System

PICOR has been heavily involved in the development of high-speed Batch Weighing Railcar Loading Systems since 1981. PICOR is now revolutionizing the industry with the PICOR Precision Loading System. This system is the result of completely rethinking rapid precision high-speed batch loading system requirements and operation.

The key concept of the Precision Loading System is that it loads one or more batches into each railcar. A two batch system, while less costly than a single batch system, can load at a maximum rate of 3,500 tons per hour. If more than three batches are used to load the rail car, the bin size is not large enough to fill the front of the car with a single batch, a crucial factor in high-speed precision loading.

From this "Multiple Batch" concept follows numerous advantages over traditional single batch systems. With the smaller bin size, the required surge capacity is dramatically less than a conventional system. This smaller surge bin and weigh bin capacity translate into a decrease in overall height of 20 feet. This shorter height yields decreased steel cost, allows for a shorter conveyor, and, at 6,000 tons per hour, saves about 150 conveyor drive horsepower. The smaller size and decreased complexity also results in decreased installation time. The Precision Loading System, due to its small size and all bolted construction, is easy to relocate. It is now economical to install a Precision Loading System at a location, and to relocate it at a later date.

The Precision Loading System is a superior product at a lower cost. Contact PICOR for more information on the Precision Loading System.
