Dallas-based Trinity Rail Group Inc. has enlisted Miner Enterprises, Inc. to provide components for 185 sugar cars being built for Imperial Sugar Co. In a statement, Miner said its SaniLOK™ gate system was a critical component in the order, in order to meet strict food safety guidelines.


"Miner’s SaniLOK™ gravity pneumatic gate system will ensure that Imperial Sugar is able to safely and effectively transport and unload its products in keeping with food industry standards," said Ric Biehl, vice president of sales for Geneva, Ill.-based Miner.

"And, with Miner’s Series 2008 Brake Beams, these 185 new cars are equipped with the finest array of Miner products guaranteeing long lasting, high quality performance for years to come," Biehl said.

Imperial Sugar Co., based in Sugar Land, Tex., has refining plants in Gramercy, La., and in Savannah, Ga.
