The original design dates back to the early Fifties, when it was offered in single- and double compartment versions. The name lends itself to the “action” created by an air-permeable fabric lining in the bottom of the compartment. Unloading the car involves pumping air under the lining fluidizing the commodity which in turn is drawn out of the compartment by pneumatic or other means. This type of car was primarily used for sugar, flour, and starch (and sometime certain types of plastics).
