Track Cleaners

Track Cleaner for Tracked Mines - American Mine DoorAmerican Mine Door's Model 75 is a rugged, heavy-duty Track Cleaner ready to remove iron, copper, coal, potash, and salt from your tracked mine.

Designed to serve in a variety of underground mining environments, our Model 75 Track Cleaner operates while hitched to a locomotive.  It cleans your mine track using two methods:

  •  Using the Forward Plows, the track cleaner scoops excess debris from the outside of the railway. Once set to the best position, the plows funnel the debris into the center area between the tracks.
  • Between the rails is a Digger Plate traveling 1" above the railroad ties when in digger position. The digger plate strips through any debris which has compacted along the tracks. Loosened material is funneled up the digger plate onto a gathering conveyor chain. The gathering chain conveys debris onto a boom conveyor and then in to a receiving rail car being pulled by the Track Cleaner (coupled together).

Impressive Credentials

Model 75 Track CleanerIn operation since 1906, American Mine Door has a reputation for providing rugged and reliable mining equipment, from Mine Doors and Cable Vulcanizers to Track Cleaners.  Our Model 75 evolved from the previous Canton Track Cleaner, which had already proven itself through extensive use in a variety of underground mine environments. 

Our Model 75 Track Cleaners have a clean spillage rate exceeding 1 TON per minute, clearing the roadbed for a distance of 6' 6" from the centerline on each side of the track and leveling the roadbed a total of 13' 0" out to out with plow extensions. A medium size locomotive tows the cleaner, one or more empties, and the change motor.
