A Direct Pull system involves drawing the material from the rail car using a vacuum pump directly to a vacuum receiver on top of the silo. ABS Pumps, Vacuum Receivers, and Air Filters are perfect for this application.
Vacuum Receivers were developed for optimal productivity and up-time. Flapper-style Receivers feature an industrial hinge for consistent swing, and an inductive proximity sensor for simple set-up and operation. Knifegates are an optional outlet, allowing the vessel to serve as a surge hopper and eliminating potential leaks due to pellet wedging.
