The Reading claims a sharp reduction in locomotive sanding time due to the use of low velocity air produced by blowers rather than high-velocity air produced by a compressor. The new Module installation at Lebanon, Pa., has the major advantages of reduced line wear and economy produced by using a low-cost air supply system. The conveying of sand with the low pressure system is fast and smooth because the Module value automatically adjusts the sand flow to the flow of air. This smooth flow of sand also minimings noise and dust pollution.
