why lubricating rails

track-side lubrication systems are mainly used to:
  • reduce the material wear and tear of wheel and rail
    • and to increase the durable life of the rail infrastructure (rails, trackswitches, etc.)
    • to minimize the Life-Cycle-Costs of the rail infrastructure

  • to prevent the climbing-up of the wheel flange on the rail flanks and/or tips of points
    • and therefore to reduce the derailment risk

  • to reduce the noise pressure level of wheel squeal
    • especially in low radius curves noise pressure levels can reach values of up to 120dB(A)
