Safe journeys for the railway industry
Heating devices and air conditioners protect the equipment from ice and heat
Effective heating, even at double-digit minus degrees
Trotec offers industry-specific solutions also for railway employees: In 2014, for instance, we developed a series of innovative tents especially for track construction works bearing the attribute “R” as in “RAIL”. Furthermore our large heating devices and insulation dryers are often deployed for and certainly do not derail during defrosting and maintenance tasks. Our measurement technology also supports you in all monitoring matters pertaining to railways.
Heating devices for defrosting bogies have to provide highly effective heating in order to keep the idle time at a minimum. This task can be completed by the mobile high-performance electric heating units of the TEH series from Trotec, for example the TEH 200, the TEH 300 or the TEH 400. Due to their high system efficiency, focused hot air can flow towards the bogies to remove blocks of ice via hose distances of up to 100 metres. Should yet higher capacities be required, we recommend using the central oil heating units of the ID series. They yield the required heating capacity even at sub-zero temperatures of as low as -20 °C. In addition, a broad range of fans is available for air circulation.
Trotec also provides railway employees with the appropriate technology for other maintenance work: For drying sandwich floors in wagons, the insulation dryers of the MultiQube series are the best choice. And in summer, many switch towers are cooled using mobile air conditioners of the PT series to avoid failure of the electronic system due to overheating.
Innovative track construction work tent to be fastened directly on the track
Conventional track construction work tents usually have fastening solutions which can only be realized in a difficult and time-consuming way, e.g. rods under the tracks or similar. This is why Trotec put the KE-R track construction work tents series on the market, consisting of welded tents with heat-resistant roof which are fastened directly on the tracks. Fastening takes place before the tent is pitched to prevent it from being blown away beforehand.
Measuring devices for the railway industry
In the product segment of measurement technology, too, the Trotec Group offers solutions for typical tasks in the railway industry, such as the pipe detector SR20 for the inspection of above-ground and underground supply lines along the railway line, or the FFT high-performance correlator LD20PC for the analysis of water pipes. In addition, the combination detector LD6000, developed for leak detection and acoustic pipe location, can be used to detect bearing damage at wheelset bearings. Moreover, our IC085LV thermal imaging cameras are suitable for the inspection of electrical components and lines.
Make use of our best practice industrial services
You can count on our experts
In order to precisely calculate the demand in the industry and to develop tailor-made concepts for climate conditioning experienced climate specialists are needed. Rely on our team of experts as well as the industrial services: We analyse the individual requirement situation with you present on site, determine the specific demand for devices and develop a tailor-made project solution right up to the exact positioning of the devices.
Before the planned stationary units are installed, our service team first works with mobile versions of the drying units as part of a trial run. These can be put up without any difficulty or the need for structural changes.
During this validation phase we document all relevant climate parameters such as air temperature, relative humidity, dew point or flow rate for a final optimization of the requirement calculation.
Trotec is the only provider of this advantage:
Thanks to the unique option of non-binding trial operation you will invest solely in solutions which have verifiably proven their worth in everyday operation meeting your individual on-site requirements. The stationary units will not be ordered until you are fully satisfied with our concept. The only costs incurred consist of an inexpensive hiring flat rate for the time of test operation.
Just give us a call at +49 2452 963-777 – our industry consultants will be pleased to help you personally and provide information regarding our best practice industrial services. Or send a request indicating your personal requirements directly to our industry experts. We will answer promptly!
Since every industrial undertaking has characteristic process flows, installations and facilities, every air treatment solution demands case-specific device configurations. All in all, the combined effects of air currents, humidity conditions and temperature fluctuations are often hard to calculate on a purely theoretical basis, e.g. in airlock areas or on conveying paths. The consequence: Unnecessary additional costs due to an overestimated demand or – even worse – solutions not working sufficiently in real life.
