rail wagon unloading


After transport, coal was difficult to unload from the bottom dump wagons – often made worse in wet weather. Jackhammers, with a sound output of around 105dB(A), were held by hand against the side of the wagon, resulting in operator discomfort and wagon damage.


A quiet, air-cushioned NTS vibrator was mounted on a vacuum fixing system and suspended from an overhead gantry with an inertia reel. The device was pushed against the wagon and held in place by vacuum. The vibrator was started, and the coal discharged. The operator simply had to work two switches and did not need to hold the device while it was operating.
