Description

New generation hopper-car of model 19-9549-03 is equipped with the bogie with an axle load of 25 tf.

The rail car body volume increased to 120 m3 ensures a loading capacity of up to 76.5 t (+6 t when compared to counterparts) which makes it possible to carry a wide range of mineral fertilizers.  The use of a special two-component coating effectively protects the body against the aggressive cargo exposure. With the car body space increased it becomes practical to transport cargoes with high bulk density. This, together with extended between-repairs run time providing for a twofold decrease in the cost of the rail car life cycle, creates a significant competitive edge of the rail car of model 19-9549-03.
