Railcar Cleaning System

March 16, 2012

The Rescar Companies, who provides complete repair, maintenance, cleaning, and interior/exterior coating services to owners, lessors, and users of rail tank/freight cars throughout North America, has opened a new state-of-the-art railcar cleaning system in Channelview, TX. The new cleaning system is designed to process eight railcars simultaneously, speeding their return to railcar owners and to leasing customers so they can ship their products, as well as reducing lost-income days for railcar lessors. Built new from the ground up, the facility includes dedicated tanks, more powerful pumps with product-specific piping, and a sophisticated vapor abatement system, capable of treating up to 900 specific compounds before and during the cleaning process. All vapors are treated and monitored to reduce or eliminate release to the atmosphere. The cleaning facility will return many “residual” products to the industrial production cycle.
