Multi Position Beam Mounted
Hopper Gate Opener
Approximate Lead Time: 3 – 4 weeks
This Door Demon, the Multi Position beam mounted hopper gate opener, features an electric over hydraulic system with powered height adjustment as well as forward and retract motion. This enables simple lever operated adjustment to fit the wide range of railcar capstan heights and depths. The free-moving trolley system rolls easily by hand and allows for moving trains and capstans. The unit features powerful continuous torque with both the electric motor and hydraulic motor customizable to accommodate any unloading situation.
The unit is easily modified to fit into most unloading areas with customized shaft lengths. In addition, a rotation option (see video below) is available to completely remove the drive shaft from the walkway. This is especially helpful in tight layouts, as this option also prevents the driveshaft from making contact with the railcar.
The Multi Position Beam Mounted Door Demon is mounted on a standard W6x25 I beam (customer supplied).
