Rail vehicles often require the filling of sand used to improve traction and braking. Traditional methods require a lot of time and labour and often the waste dumped is harmful to health and the environment. Aquafrisch supplies automated equipment that allows a single operator to fill sand tanks through dispensers.
The sand is stored in a silo and distributed directly to the train tanks through a fixed installation or by means of a mobile filling vehicle. The sand can be delivered to the silo directly by tanker trucks. In this case, the truck has a pressure group to feed the silo. In cases where the silo cannot be supplied by truck, we recommend the bag feeding system, which is loaded into an auxiliary pneumatic group to feed the silo.
