Loram TracShield

Speed, Performance, Reliability

is the patented wayside track lubrication

system that lubricates the top-of-rail and

rail gauge corner using an environmentally

clean friction modifier.

 

 

Wayside Top-of-Rail Friction Modification System

How it Works.

TracShieldTM applies a friction modifier

on both rails every time a train passes over

the application area. The friction modifier is

then carried by the wheels of the train for

up to 2 to 4 miles. The system is activated by

rugged wheel detectors, which dispense

precision, computer-controlled quantities

of friction modifier.

 

• Reduces track maintenance costs

• Reduces fuel consumption

• Reduces lateral / vertical forces

• Reduces wheel, track, and rail wear

• Reduces conditions that can

  cause derailments

• Reduces noise

 

BENEFITS

Enhanced Performance

and Accuracy.

The accurate friction modification dispensing

systems utilize less friction modifier while

increasing rail life, reducing lateral forces, and

lowering energy consumption.

 

Reliable Service and Support.

With more than 30 years of helping railroads

extend rail life through rail grinding, Loram has

now added the most advanced friction modification

systems in the industry to our product

offerings. Extend the life of your rail assets,

TOR-FMTM FRICTION MODIFIER

Top-of-Rail Friction Modifier

Loram’s TOR-FM

is an environmentally clean, water-polymer solution. TOR-FM™ is the generic name for the family of Friction Modifiers currently made up of TOR Plus and TOR Premium.

 

How it Works.

TOR-FM™ offers all season protection for

your rails, and is resilient to low temperatures below 0º F. TOR-FM™ is biodegradable, safe to handle, and does not contain any solids such as graphite or molybdenum disulfide. TOR-FM™ eliminates any need for messy grease and their associated clean up costs.

 

Benefits

 

• All season protection

• Water-based solution to grease / graphite and oil based lubricants

• Environmentally clean

• Safe to use

• Electrically neutral, does not cause any shorting / shunting problems

• Non-corrosive / biodegradable

 

Installation, Maintenance, and Performance.

Loram’s TOR-FM™ is a light green friction modifier with a mild odor, and is ideally used

in hot / cold, dry climates being that it is

water soluble.

TOR-FM™ is applied to the rails by a spray method, and is currently being used in Loram’s YardGlide®, CraneGlide™, and TracGlideTM.

TRANERGY’S CURVGLIDE

Tranergy’s CurvGlide CVG1000 is a clean,

Unique wayside track lubrication system that

simultaneously lubricates both the top-of-rail

and rail gage corner using an environmentally

clean lubricant.

BENEFITS

Reduced track maintenance costs and the probability of derailments

Reduced wheel and rail wear

Reduced noise

Clean environment – avoids the track safety hazard of greasers

Outstanding performance in all weather conditions

Reduced lubricant cost (1/4 of grease)

Innovation through Understanding

CurvGlide is the only system that Simultaneously reduces lateral derailment forces and wheel flange friction on a curve

 

CurvGlide reduces lateral forces on the rail by lubricating both the top of rail and gage corner simultaneously.

Nozzles placed between two wheel sensors spray when a wheel trips sensor 1 or 2 (depending on direction). Track is lubricated on one side while the wheel flange and tread are lubricated on the other. Car wheels help to spread the lubricant.

CurvGlide can be installed in a few hours and uses very small quantities of lubricant. Maintenance is minimal as the system is computer-controlled and environmentally clean.

The tank also requires filling less often than greasers (only once a month for sixty 100-car trains per day)

 

CurvGlide is set to revolutionize wayside track lubrication with its combination of precision, clean lubrication and reduction of derailments and track wear.
