  • Reducing friction on the running surface of the rail has been proven to reduce lateral forces, rail wear, fuel consumption, and Rolling Contact Fatigue (RCF).

  • We look to add lubrication to the Gauge face (or check rail). Grease application reduces friction at the wheel/rail interface.

  • Adhesion between vehicle wheels and rail is dictated by top of rail surface conditions and contamination. Our Traction Gel Applicator (TGA3) distributes traction enhancing material called ALLEVIATE® directly to the position on the rail where it is required.
