ACF Industries has introduced a 100-ton covered hopper with a capacity of 5,701 cu ft but only a 51-ft 4-in truck center distance which makes it possible for the car to be weighed on most track scales. This new Center Flow has been designed especially for the transport of plastics, powders and pellets, incorporating a new pneumatic oulet with rotary valve that optimizes flow control during unloading.
