Versaflood™ Aggregate

Open Top Hoppers: Aggregate – VersaFlood™

FreightCar America’s VersaFlood™ aggregate hopper car design portfolio adds the versatility of a transverse or a longitudinal discharge door system, enhancing customer options for the productive transportation of sand, rock, or minerals.
Our VersaFlood hybrid steel and aluminum aggregate hopper car offers superior load capacity and corrosion resistance through the selective use of lighter weight aluminum for entire car body sides or for upper sections of the car body sides as determined by customer requirements. The VersaFlood design with transverse doors is also available in mild steel or stainless-steel design configurations, all with independent or fully automatic door operation.
The VersaFlood door system features our all-in-one touch pad control panel allowing each door pocket to be opened individually or all door pockets to be opened at the same time. Along with exceptional payload capacity, this versatile design features mechanically fastened sides and ends along with the superior strength and durability of our patented one-piece, cold-rolled center sill. Our VersaFlood car design also makes for a great conversion option and can be created from virtually any standard draft gear donor car design.
These features of our VersaFlood™ Car can be configured to meet your specific requirements or preferences:

  • Size / capacity
  • Stainless option
  • Aluminum body
  • Hybrid option
  • Door system
  • Brake system
  • Draft system

As part of our dedication to customer service, any of our railcar products may be further developed to meet the specific characteristics of the bulk or containerized freight being transported — as well as any other customized requirements or specifications required by our clients.

Our commitment to quality and customer services begins with the first customer contact and extends through the life of the railcar. Our Customer Service Department is staffed by a highly qualified and experienced team with the resources to help with any of your service requirements.
