A pneumatic unloading system is incorporated in the Center Flow Cannonaide car which utilizes intermittent air blasts to dislodge and unload bulk shipments of such troublesome materials as asbestos, synthetic rubber and resins. Previously these materials have required bagging or boxing. The car, otherwise a conventional Center Flow design, has air tanks and blaster units integrally positioned underneath. Nozzles extend through the slope sheets and can be programmed to be self rotating.
