Onboard lubrication systems
Lubrication systems for wheel flange lubrication and railhead conditioning
SKF EasyRail systems for wheel flange lubrication and railhead conditioning are mounted on-board on the first leading vehicle axle and support operators to achieve:
- cost savings in vehicle and infrastructure maintenance
- lower noise emissions and
reduce energy and fuel consumption.
On-board lubrication systems have proven to be very flexible and effective applications for railway operators due to their variable setting options. SKF EasyRail systems can be configured for single- and dual-line lubrication systems applications. In most of the applications, the TCMS (Train Control Monitoring System) will control and manage the system. If required, SKF can supply a control unit as well, including an integrated curve sensor.
The major applications include:
- regional and commuter trains
- high-speed trains
- trams, metros and more
