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 end of the car is provided.
