TransloadXpress Rail Unloading
Granite Rock Company is pleased to introduce the TransloadXpress service for the high-speed loading and unloading of bulk commodity rail cars. The TransloadXpress is a mobile conveyor system which loads or unloads bulk commodity rail cars anywhere there is flat land adjacent to rail spurs. Designed by Graniterock to extend the geographic range of its aggregates business, the TransloadXpress service is available on a contract basis for a wide range of commodities.
A Breakthrough for Reducing Transportation Costs
Graniterock TransloadXpress is a major breakthrough in bulk commodity transportation. Operating at speeds averaging 300 tons per hour, the TransloadXpress service can dramatically reduce delivery costs for a wide range of bulk commodities.
TransloadXpress can be set up very easily for a rail loading or unloading task. A single operator does everything to set up and convey materials.
Moving Between Hopper Gates
TransloadXpress quickly moves from one hopper car to the next. The Extendobeam retracts, and the rail car or the TransloadXpress moves down the rail siding.
The Reverse Application: Loading Rail Cars
A hopper is placed on top of the TransloadXpress Extendobeam, enabling the discharge of material onto the conveyor from an end-dump truck, front loader, conveyor belt, or other high-volume source.
Patented Graniterock Technology
Graniterock is proud of the engineering achievement of the TransloadXpress. Its technology is so advanced that it has been patented.
Service Available for Wide Range of Projects
The TransloadXpress can be contracted for periods ranging from one day’s service to large-scale, extended projects. Our skilled staff will work with you to develop a plan for carrying your project through to completion.
Road and Building Construction
In Graniterock’s core business, we have found the TransloadXpress to be tremendously beneficial for both small-scale projects where trucking is problematic, and for large-scale projects where the economics of rail transport are far more attractive than trucking.
With its ability to travel directly to harvest sites, the TransloadXpress easily moves products from harvest to rail hopper cars or trucks for delivery to food processing centers.
