Hopper Car


Since 1983, Salco Products has been the leader in designing and providing hopper car components. Salco has left its mark on the industry by being the pioneer behind the creation of the vented hatch cover, which is an essential addition to any plastic pellet/resin fleet. Between both our vented and non-vented circular hatch cover designs, Salco remains the industry leader with over 3 million covers in service today.



With keeping over 90% of our PD car (pressure differential) components in stock, Salco can be sure to make good on our pledge for immediate shipment of stock items. Carbon Black and Airslide car components round out our full line of hopper car parts. Parts for these cars can be hard to come by, so you can rely on Salco to have the parts you need to keep your cars in service.
