Description

Model 32-6982 and 32-6982-01 dump cars are designed for the transport and automated unloading of overburden and rock, as well as various types of coal and ore, soil, sand, crushed stone and other similar cargoes on mainline railways with 1,520 mm gauge.

Volume of 42 m3 and enhanced carrying capacity enable the 32-6982 and 32-6982-01 dump cars to efficiently transport bulk cargoes of various fractions. The two versions of the car optimize transportation of various cargo types. The 32-6982 car with a shock-absorbing base is designed to load and unload large ore rocks without damaging the car's structure. The 32-6982-01 car is best suited for transport of fine fraction bulk cargoes. Increase of load capacity by 5-10 tons compared with analogues enables a reduction of the fleet size by up to 15%. Extended intervals between scheduled maintenance (up to 1 million km or 8 years) significantly reduce the life-cycle cost of the car, which has a service life of 32 years. The tariff effect and longer intervals between maintenance procedures offer a significant reduction in the average cost of transportation.

The 32-6982 and 32-6982-01 dump cars are designed to operate in freight trains of any length and weight, and are compatible with the existing infrastructure used by shippers and consignees.
