Title (EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR COMPACTING MATERIALS IN OPEN TOP TRANSPORT CONVEYANCE
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ DE COMPACTAGE DE MATÉRIAUX DANS UN MOYEN DE TRANSPORT À TOIT OUVERT
Abstract:
(EN) A compacting system compacts particulate matter in open-top railroad gondola cars rolling on rails. The compacting system comprises a compacting station adjacent the rails and a scanning system that scans the gondola cars as they move along the rails toward the compacting station. The scanning system transmits data of the gondola car to an electronic control system. The compacting station has at least one compaction member, e.g., a plate structure or a roller, configured to contact an upper surface of the particulate matter in the gondola cars. The electronic control system controls the compacting station so that the compaction member engages with and applies force to the upper surface of the particulate matter in the gondola car so as to compress the particulate matter in the gondola. A method for compacting particulate matter in a gondola car is also shown.
(FR) La présente invention porte sur un système de compactage d'une matière particulaire dans des wagons-tombereaux à toit ouvert roulant sur des rails. Le système de compactage comprend un poste de compactage adjacent aux rails et un système de scannage qui scanne les wagons-tombereaux à mesure qu'ils se déplacent le long des rails vers le poste de compactage. Le système de scannage transmet des données du wagon-tombereau à un système de commande électronique. Le poste de compactage comprend au moins un élément de compactage, par exemple une structure de plaque ou un rouleau, configuré pour être en contact avec une surface supérieure de la matière particulaire dans les wagons-tombereaux. Le système de commande électronique commande le poste de compactage de telle sorte que l'élément de compactage soit en prise avec, et applique une force à, la surface supérieure de la matière particulaire dans le wagon-tombereau de sorte à comprimer la matière particulaire dans le wagon-tombereau. Un procédé de compactage d'une matière particulaire dans un wagon-tombereau est également représenté.
