LATCHING CYLINDER PROTECTS AGAINST FAILURE ON FREIGHT WAGON DOOR SYSTEMS

CUSTOMER CHALLENGE

A global freight car builder based in China required a control system for top hatch and discharge doors to protect against the failure of the air supply system.

NORGREN SOLUTION

The Norgren solution combines a customised heavy duty cylinder with an integrated latch and manual over ride to lock the piston of the door cylinder, for air-supply failure protection.

The latching cylinder is combined with other heavy duty components as a complete kit.

  • Proven technology
  • Reduced components circuitry, installation time and weight
  • Integrated design, instead of separate locking cylinders
  • Manual over ride to allow manual operation if compressed air not available
