Railcar Loading-Offloading Skids

S&S Technical has extensive experience in engineering and fabricating railcar loading-offloading skid systems for a variety of liquefied gas applications including: Propane, Crude Oil, Butane, Ammonia, Isobutylene, Propylene, Chlorine and Refrigerant Gases such as R134A and R410A, and more.

There are 3 common types of applications of railcar loading-offloading systems (or Truck Loading-Offloading) for terminal unloading. Typically, such in the case of products like Ethanol and other Bio-Fuels; product is delivered by truck, railcar, or barge and is offloaded into storage. Metering systems detect air and other abnormalities that can affect an accurate reading.

We have provided fully integrated railcar loading-offloading systems designed for safe material handling at large rail terminal applications where several railcar-unloading spots are utilized, and also for smaller single spot compressor systems for one or two car sites.

S&S Technical has the expertise to properly size compressors for your application and to provide the engineering, manufacturing and automation integration needed to ensure that the system design coordinates with the operational needs of your terminal.

Railcar loading-offloading systems bring many benefits to a facility or project. They ensure extremely accurate metering and measuring with the use of quality pumps or compressors, filters, valves, flow meters and grounding units. Many times these systems are used with hazardous chemicals as it ensures proper and safe handling.

Railcar loading-offloading systems are a great way to keep employees safe. The protection provided allows for a greater range of product to be handled, such as caustic, bio-diesel, and ethanol.

Railcar loading-offloading skids can be designed per customer specification and will meet all OSHA, government and industry standards. All systems are fully tested and must pass our quality assurance and factory testing before shipment. Clients have the option of visiting our facility to witness all testing before shipment.

Railcar loading-offloading systems are fully customizable to meet the needs of your specific project, facility or terminal configuration. Railcar loading-offloading systems are a great addition to terminals and can improve accuracy and efficiency when loading / offloading product.
