Quicker, easier opening of railcar unloading gates allows you to be safer and more productive.

When the weight of the cargo load on the discharge gate makes opening the gate difficult, Martin Engineering’s railcar openers can force the gate open, minimizing safety risks for workers and improving unloading efficiency. Our railcar openers use compressed air to apply a powerful, steady, non-impacting force that opens even the most stubborn gates without causing damage to the equipment.

Our technicians and engineers are available to provide expert advice and assistance on these products and all of your bulk material handling questions and problems. Please contact us today and let us help!
