Top of rail lubrication system from REBS on rail network vehicle
Since 1997 our rail network vehicle from Windhoff has been equipped with a top of rail and wheel flange lubrication system from REBS.
The avoidance of corner squealing and wear reduction in the wheel-rail system is particularly noticeable thanks to the installation of the system.
Also with regard to the traction, no problems were identified during the test phase with respect to the acceleration and deceleration of the vehicles. Brake tests were performed on our brake track before use. With the minimum lubricant quantities and precise metering of the REBS systems, the influence of the traction on the vehicles proved insignificant.
