Railroad Mobile Sanding Trailer for Railroad
- Increase safety
- Trailer is road legal
- Training of operating personnel
In order to prevent wheel slippage, locomotives have sandboxes that hold approximately 60 cubic feet of sand that is used to add traction to the drive wheels. In front of each drive wheel is a nozzle that uses compressed air to dispense sand on the rail directly in front of the wheel. In order to fill these sandboxes, railroad mechanics have to empty 50 pound bags, one at a time. With the weight of the sand bag and the location of the sandbox on the locomotive, this makes for a dangerous situation.
Railquip offers a Mobile Sanding Trailer that makes filling locomotive sandboxes safe, easier and much faster. In addition, the trailer is road legal and can be taken to any location where a locomotive is in need of sand, instead of having to bring the locomotive to a fixed sanding location.
