Automated Dense Phase Locomotive Sand Systems
A sand system, depending on the region, can be one of the most important systems at a Locomotive Service Center. The only problem is it is usually the most unreliable system because of the extensive wear damage caused by conveying sand. Our proven dense phase type sand system helps minimize Sand System downtime due to worn parts. The reliability of any system is dependent upon a proper design and a quality installation. We have an extensive reputation for custom designed Sand Systems, designed specifically for each site’s requirements.
