Rail lubrication systems - HY-POWER benefits and infos

Track-side lubrication systems are mainly used to:

  • 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)
  • 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
    • reduce the reprofiling work on the wheels and thus increase the lifetime
  • Reduce energy consumption
    • and thus reduce CO2 emissions and costs
  • 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
Why lubricating rails?

Our track-side lubricators significantly reduce noise, derailment risk, energy consumption and wheel/rail wear:

Benefits and proven results
  • Potential savings
    • useful life of rail may be extended by at least 200%
    • danger of derailment may be reduced by 2/3
    • energy costs are reduced considerably
    • noise reduction avoids need of expensive constructions like noise barriers

  • Minimal lubrication
    • exact adjusting of produced quantity
    • therby, minimal grease consumption
    • use of biodegradable lubricants

  • No demounting necessary for winter

  • Usable for all rails and wheel flanges

  • lubricant is not applied in places but as a continuous grease film over the total circumference of the wheel

  • HY-POWER equipment passed all established electro-magnetic compability tests and correspond CE standards

  • All HY-POWER products are patent-protected
