Intermodal Tipper Bins

Specialised Container Agencies (SCA), suppliers of niche market container products, has developed an intermodal side tipper bin, that provides efficient bulk handling rail solutions, encouraging greater utilisation of rail wagon container haulage. “SCA’s intermodal tipper bins ensure quick, safe and coste efficient bulk handling in rail and road applications. What’s
notable is this intermodal side tipper bin system increases payload on rail wagons, from 54 metric tons to 60 metric tons. A single tipper bin is able to hold 30 metric tons for road transport,” explains Ken Mouritzen,
director, Specialised Container Agencies.
“Robust intermodal side tipper bins are easily handled onto container
rail wagons and road trucks by a container handler. “Side tipper bins have been designed for rapid and efficient off-loading of materials from both rail wagons and road trucks, using specially designed hydraulic tipping cylinders.
“An important feature of these intermodal side tipper bins , which are able
to be stacked two-high for storage, is that they can be used across different
modes of transport, including road and rail, without the need for
investment in double handling cargo.
“This system is boosting the utilisation of rail infrastructure, which significantly reduces transport costs, decreases national road congestion and minimises product damage,” Ken concludes.
