Product Details

Second Generation Railcar Valves (Click to enlarge image) Changing to these new valves with all their great features helps assure proper operation of your cars. Models are available for virtually all types of coal and aggregate cars.

Second Generation Valve Features:
• Main valve element is based on our rugged “sliding shoe” construction – the same trouble-free design that has been
used in our railcar valves for over two decades.
• A sequenced mechanical lock maintains the valve in the “door close” position regardless of outside forces or vibration.
• The locking feature is released only when an electrical or manual signal to shift has been received.
• A visual indicator is operated via the lock mechanism that clearly shows whether the valve is in the “door close” position with the valve element locked in place or if the valve is in the unlocked or “door open” position.
• Because they are mechanically locked in the “door close” position, the valves may be mounted in any position or
orientation.
• The modular design allows the main valve unit to be removed/replaced in minutes without disturbing the electrical connection or plumbing when repair due to age or service conditions becomes necessary.
• Self closing solenoid cover/junction box can be locked to prevent unauthorized access to manual overrides.
• Our patented “Safety Check” technology (U.S. Patents 7,093,455 and 7,328,661) is available as a “no-charge” option.
• Innovative lock/indicator features latest Lexair, Inc. technology (U.S. Patents 8,038,231 and 8,256,850).
