045 ReRail

Published: 8 February 2017

ReRail installed in the track, test and control plan was compiled to monitor and document ReRails properties during the trial period and the extraordinary inspections / checks are carried out during provdriftens first half.

The sub-project aims to ensure that ReRail installed in the track, to a sample and control plan is compiled to monitor and document ReRails properties during the trial period and the extraordinary inspections / checks are carried out during provdriftens first half.

The result can be used as a basis for further validation and EU labeling ReRail as a new rälprodukt, which is the rail industry's equivalent to the CE marking.

results Description

Final deliveries are a new rälprodukt which means that 10 mm of the rail head is replaced with a borstålskappa as roll formed and cured. The innovation means that an old rail with damage to the railhead can be reused, reducing carbon emissions radically, because you do not have to build new rail. The material of the coat also has much better material properties than standardräl which reduces the need for grinding rails and rail lubrication. Rail product reduces the risk of derailment by the cloak or rälstommen continues to hold together the rail in a row. rail failure on the coat or the frame.

Stakeholder value is mainly to ReRail allows a quick and practical application to modify and reuse "worn rails" and avoid rail replacement. Rail Product ReRail reduces the need for rails which provide both environmental and economic gains. Calculations show that maintenance costs can be halved and the service life is increased. In this project delivery;

  • Installation of ReRail at the operation site Luleå in the groove 21 as an 8 m long passräl
  • Preparation of test and inspection, as well as
  • Additional inspection during provdriftens first half
