Unloading hopper bottom railcars and trucks has never been easier with Cyclonaire CycloLift connectors. CycloLift’s specifically designed connectors install easily between existing tracks to reduce time and help eliminate costly spills and cleanup. Pneumatic lifters elevate the unit as the hopper empties, maintaining a positive seal.
Accommodates a wide range of pneumatic or mechanical convey system. Industrial-grade, welded and bolted carbon steel construction. Heavy-duty, flexible reinforced rubber chute bolted to lifting framework and material pan. Square, round or rectangular custom-designed inlet to match any application. Manually-operated pneumatic control valve for raising and lowering the connector.
Custom-designed steel adapter plates precisely fi t the hoppers you service for quick alignment of the boot seat and the gate.
Pneumatic lifters provide a tighter boot-to-gate seal than hydraulic cylinders and mechanical linkages.
CycloLift operates from a small, shallow trench less than two feet deep. No need to excavate and shore up man-sized pits.
When retracted, CycloLift allows unrestricted railcar/truck movement.
