Coal Hopper


Aluminum Coal Hoppers are specifically designed to carry the maximum amount of coal in order to maximize efficiencies and to unload via hopper gates on the bottom of the railcar. Many of the coal hoppers MRC supplies are equipped with both gates for bottom unloading as well as rotary couplers, which allow for rotary dumping of the car’s contents.

MRC also provides Open-Top Hoppers for bulk commodities that are unaffected by weather and unload from beneath the car.
