Transloading – Liquid & Dry Bulk
Liquid: Seven (7) rail spurs, totaling 2.5 miles of track, are available for the dedicated use of transferring our customer’s liquid chemical products between railcar and bulk tank trucks. The transloading area is easily accessible for customer pickups and other carriers. A truck scale is designed into the traffic flow for quick and efficient service. Methods of conveyance include dedicated pumps, compressed air or gravity. Hot water heating is available for use on railcars or trucks that contain heat-sensitive products. Steam heat is available for the more viscous materials or for freeze protection.
Dry Bulk: 3 Rivers Terminal has 7 overhead rail positions with the distinct honor of being the largest overhead transfer trestle in the United States. Materials such as poly beads, soda ash, boron, sodium sulfate and others can be efficiently transferred without the risk of cross contamination or the use of mechanical conveying equipment. Compartment hopper cars can be split unloaded between bulk truck and the bag filling operation.
Drum, Tote, Bag & Package Filling
Drum/Tote Filling: Six (6) drum/tote filling stations are capable of handling most chemical classifications with direct unloading access from tank truck, railcar, ISO-container or blend tank. Certified scales provide assurance for accurate filling weights and inventory control. Heating is available for products with high viscosities. Empty drums and totes are provided as a package unless directed otherwise by the customer.
Bag Filling: Hopper railcars of various dry materials are positioned in an overhead trestle with gravity feeds into our bag filling operation. Units filled include 50-100 lb. valve-sealed bags, bulk sacks up to 3500 lbs. and open-head drums of various sizes. The 50-100 lb. bags are pneumatically filled while the bulk sacks and drums are gravity fed.
