Adapter Ports

Adapter Ports

Adapter Ports is an innovative solution for customers who need to load a car into a round port, but do not have cars equipped with Quantum Plus Port hatch covers. This facility based Adapter Port is essentially a very light Plus Port cover that can quickly be installed on any Quantum Plus system. This cover has special brackets on it that slip under the hinges of any open 3 foot Quantum Plus cover. Once this cover is clipped into place it can be locked down, creating a round opening (typically 20” diameter) for a loading chute.
 
When loading at this port is complete, the Adapter Port can be unlocked and removed for use at another position on the car or moved to another car. If the car has A and B-End Plus covers (3 foot ports), you will need left and right hand Adapter Ports. Most customers that utilize Adapter Ports may prefer to have a complete set of ports available for the cars they load. If your needs differ from a 20” round opening in the port, we may be able to custom build to your application.
