Amsted Rail® Universal Hatch Cover

For over a century, Amsted Rail has been at the forefront in supplying critical systems and components to enhance the productivity and safety of heavy haul railroading.

Amsted Rail has expanded its industry leadership with a complete line of pellet car components built for reliability and performance. No other rail component provider can match our expertise in designing products that optimize each pellet car's return on investment.

  • Proprietary design is the first to meet both vented and non-vented hopper applications, eliminating need for change-outs based on cargo
  • Self-adjusting latch maintains gasket compression during extreme temperatures
  • Rugged ABS construction provides uncompromised strength at lighter weight, for exponentially more profitable operation
  • Lower profile design eliminates locking arm, no tools needed for in-service adjustment
