Mining – Car Topper System

Transport of minerals in open railcars has been under environmental pressure for a number of years. Fugitive dust loss from loaded railcars can pose air quality violations, contribute to rail ballast degradation, and reduce profits from valuable minerals lost in transit. Freedom Industries has been the recognized leader in railcar sealants (car toppers) since 1997. We have designed, installed, and maintained the majority of car topper systems currently in use throughout the Eastern United States. Although most applications are designed for transport of coal, Freedom’s products and application equipment can be used on a wide variety of ore bodies.

Each application is unique. As such, the Freedom Team
will custom design a solution for each client as follows:
  • Evaluate the coal/ore and provide a comprehensive laboratory report
  • Survey the load out and design a delivery system
  • Procure, fabricate, and install the delivery system
  • Provide maintenance and technical service after the installation.

Freedom has a treatment product to fit every application

  • Fully staffed, mineral specific R&D and QC laboratory
  • Engineering Staff to custom design application system
  • Complete fabrication shop to build application equipment
  • Service group to install and maintain systems
  • Technical support staff 24/7
