Low Profile Bladder Cylinder Pneumatic Retarder

The M96 BX is yet another example of why the M96 platform is the workhorse of the industry. Our bladder cylinder clasp retarder has all the features of the M96 steel cylinder retarder. One of the truly innovative features of our bladder system is that we use a patented air saver system. This innovation allows our M96 BX to consume less air than competitive units, thus reducing the total cost of ownership.

Used in both speed control and car holding applications, the model M96 BX features a durable lightweight bladder design. Powered by our fast acting air control system, The Gripper, the M96 BX sets the standard for efficiency  in the rail car control industry.
