Title (EN) METHOD AND MECHANISM FOR CONTROLLING GRAVITATIONAL DISCHARGE OF MATERIAL FROM A RAILROAD HOPPER CAR
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET MÉCANISME DE COMMANDE DE DÉCHARGE GRAVITATIONNELLE DE MATÉRIAU D'UN WAGON-TRÉMIE DE CHEMIN DE FER
Abstract:
(EN) A mechanism for conjointly operating a plurality of gate assemblies mounted on a hopper car having an elongated car body with sides and ends, and a bottom defining a discharge area comprised of a plurality of discharge openings. Each gate assembly includes a slide door arranged in operable association with one of the discharge openings. The mechanism operates the slide door on all the gates conjointly relative to each other. Methods for controlling the gravitational discharge of material from a hopper car are also disclosed.
(FR) Un mécanisme pour actionner conjointement une pluralité d'ensembles de portes montés sur un wagon-trémie présentant un corps allongé pourvu de côtés et d'extrémités, et un fond définissant une zone de décharge composée d'une pluralité d'ouvertures de décharge. Chaque ensemble de portes comprend une porte coulissante agencée en association fonctionnelle avec l'une des ouvertures de décharge. Le mécanisme actionne la porte coulissante sur toutes les portes conjointement l'une par rapport à l'autre. L'invention concerne également des procédés de commande de la décharge gravitationnelle de matériau d'un wagon-trémie.
