When a rail car becomes compromised by carry back during the winter months, the problem typically builds throughout the freeze season and the carry back is not eliminated until the weather breaks. This can lead to significantly lowered railcar space, adversely affecting the bottom line. Preventing carry back from occurring with an effective side release program is ideal, but if and when carry back develops, do something about it with HotShot - the carry back killer.
HotShot is designed to penetrate and melt. The blend of organic and inorganic melting agents is designed to be applied to frozen coal and or snow and ice so that it does not become a growing problem as the freeze season progresses.
