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
• Reduces noise
The accurate friction modification dispensing
systems utilize less friction modifier while
increasing rail life, reducing lateral forces, and
lowering energy consumption.

TOR-FMTM FRICTION MODIFIER
Top-of-Rail Friction Modifier
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.
• 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
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 CVG1000 is a clean,
Unique wayside track lubrication system that
simultaneously lubricates both the top-of-rail
and rail gage corner using an environmentally
Reduced track maintenance costs and the probability of derailments
Reduced wheel and rail wear
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.
