    Heyl & Patterson Announces Sale of Railcar Dumper Equipment

    Pittsburgh, PA, USA - January 27, 2015 - Heyl & Patterson Inc., a world leader in bulk material handling and thermal processing systems, has announced the sale of a turnover railcar dumper barrel to Oxbow Carbon LLC.

    The unit will be installed at an Oxbow facility in Argentina, and will be used to unload fuel grade coal for use in their production facility. The new steel structure, including an upgraded clamping system, will replace a Heyl & Patterson dumper (tippler) that was originally installed at the site in 1980. The unloading system will continue to use the existing electrical and mechanical drives.

    The barrel is scheduled for delivery in the fourth quarter of 2015, with installation to take place in the first quarter of 2016. The order includes technical assistance for installation, pre-commissioning and commissioning. Heyl & Patterson also plans to support Oxbow Carbon with spare parts, upgrades, retrofits, field service for the life of the equipment.

    A turnover dumper picks up an open-top railcar gondola and spills its contents to one side, into a shallow receiving hopper adjacent to the railroad tracks. During the operational sequence, a railcar is positioned within the dumper, clamps lock it into place, and the dumper inverts it in an arching movement to a maximum angle of 180 degrees. Each car must be uncoupled and unloaded individually in a turnover dumper.
