The fully automated AutoMEC® bottom discharge system is designed to unload coal or other bulk material at speeds ranging from one-half to three miles per hour, over trestles or into pits. A car loaded with 100 tons can be unloaded in less than 20 seconds. Some of the features are its positive over-center primary lock that has fixed stops and a secondary lock located at the air cylinder. A visual check of the locks can easily be made from the side of a car to determine if they are properly engaged. The system can also be manually or semi-automatically operated when stationary or in motion.
