Salco Products is now the exclusive distributor of the Single-Bolt Manway rail tank car system from Baier™ Rail, a division of Baier Marine Co., Inc.
With its single-bolt design, the system outperforms traditional manway products, which have a drop-bolt design and can be leak-prone and labor-intensive, according to Baier Rail. The Association of American Railroads has approved the Single-Bolt Manway, and more than 500 covers have been installed.
“We are very excited to add Baier’s Single-Bolt Manway system to our already extensive product line serving the rail tank car industry,” Salco President Dave Oestermeyer said. “We’re very much looking forward to working with Baier to usher in this new technology, which brings with it a new level of efficiency and cost savings for our customers.”
Salco designs, manufactures, assembles and distributes a variety of plastic and metal products used in tank cars, hopper cars and plant process equipment. With headquarters in Lemont, Ill., Salco’s Sales and Distribution facility is in Houston, Tex.
