Adapter Ports

Adapter Ports

Adapter Ports is an innovative solution for customers who need to load a car into a round port, but do not have cars equipped with Quantum Plus Port hatch covers. This facility based Adapter Port is essentially a very light Plus Port cover that can quickly be installed on any Quantum Plus system. This cover has special brackets on it that slip under the hinges of any open 3 foot Quantum Plus cover. Once this cover is clipped into place it can be locked down, creating a round opening (typically 20” diameter) for a loading chute.
 
When loading at this port is complete, the Adapter Port can be unlocked and removed for use at another position on the car or moved to another car. If the car has A and B-End Plus covers (3 foot ports), you will need left and right hand Adapter Ports. Most customers that utilize Adapter Ports may prefer to have a complete set of ports available for the cars they load. If your needs differ from a 20” round opening in the port, we may be able to custom build to your...

AEROvent / CarVent

AEROvent / CarVent

When rapid or vacuum unloading railcars it is necessary to make sure the cars are properly vented in order to avoid disaster and achieve a higher flow capacity. Typically, a hatch cover can be opened but in some situations contamination is a concern. Our AEROVent is an innovative solution to car venting that is typically more cost effective than putting vented covers on the car.
 
AEROvents can be installed on new or existing cars that are not currently vented or have small vents without screens. The vents are equipped with bolt in screens on both the inside of the car, and outside of the vent housing that allow for cleaning or replacement. The bottom side of the vent has a “J” shaped deflector to help eliminate driving rainwater from entering the car.
 
Both bolt on and weld on versions of the vents are available. For sizable orders, this vent is sold as a kit that comes with all the necessary installation hardware, and a drill template for cutting the vent holes on each...

Cover Systems - Quantum Plus

Cover Systems - Quantum Plus

Our patented Quantum Plus system (+3, +5, +6) is the premier choice for trough hatch cover systems. The +3, +5, and +6 terminology references the number of small square shaped ports in the system. These ports work similar to a batten bar, but create a substantially better seal between intermediate covers and can act as loading or inspection ports. The length of these ports typically reduces the overall length of the intermediate covers making each cover considerably lighter and easier to operate.
 
Quantum Plus utilizes a unique shared bracketing design where Plus covers and intermediate covers share hinge brackets. This creates a lower application cost due to fewer components, and...

westinghouse air brake tech Gate Adapter Flanges

Gate Adapter Flanges

These adapter flanges weld on the bottom of the car hopper creating a bolting surface for the outlet gate application. These flanges are utilized on new car builds, repair and maintenance projects, and to convert old weld on style hoppers to bolt on flanges. Numerous sizes, shapes, and bolt hole configurations are available.
 
ATP also offers “Adapter Adapters”. These have two different bolt hole patterns and work points on each side of the flange making it possible to convert an odd size bolting flange (such as a plastic pellet car) to a more common size. This avoids the high cost of developing a new gate for small groups of cars, and creates a larger number of gate options when the bolting flange is a more common size.

Gate Systems 13×42 Replacement (W20)

The W20 WorXgate is a weld-on, automatic locking, and low cost replacement for older generation gates. Manual locking gates were typically used on older hopper cars and if these manual locks are not disengaged before a power gate opener is used, it can destroy these older gates. The W20 is an economical solution for replacing these older manual locking gates.
 
This W20 is based on the simple side and front ledge design that was highly popular on older outlet gates. These ledge style gates do not have seals, but do come equipped with automatic inertia locks and high strength drive components.
 
These gates can be simpler to install because of their extended wings. Having these extended wings eliminates the labor and skill required to try and cut the existing gate off the car without damaging the portion of the hopper that extends inside the gate. To install this W20 gate the old gates can be cut off above the existing weld seam. The...
