RAILWAY “SAND FILLING SYSTEM”

Facilities for loading non-slip sand for freight trains:

The problem of rail slipping is eliminated by increasing the coefficient of friction between the wheel and rail, for which sand is used.

This sand is projected in front of the wheels in the direction of travel only at specific times for example when trains, trams or locomotives start or brake.

Slipping is normally produced by the presence of leaves on the rail, wet rails, slopes, etc. It is a problem that can affect the integrity of the traction motors (excessive force) or the infrastructure, because a wheel slipping on a steel rail may melt it.

NEWTEK has been manufacturing, assembling and maintaining facilities for this purpose since 1987. These comprise a Silo to store the sand that arrives by tanker or Big- bags of 1.000 Kg. approx. A pneumatic conveyor sends the sand to the pumps which load the sand boxes located in the driving bogies of the vehicle, a facility similar to that of a petrol station.

Our silos and pumps for Railway

Storage silos

The base of the silo is built on a skirt-like structure, which makes the unit a unique, clean and environmentally friendly one.

Stationary sand pumps

Sand feeding device for automatic loading to sandboxes on trams, locomotives and trains generally called “pneumatic sand pumps”.

Moving sand pumps

Autonomous self-propelled vehicle, with a seat, cabin cover, wipers, etc … Fitted with pressurised sand tank from 200-1200 kg approx., with flexible hose and dispensing nozzle, allows train or tram sandboxes to be loaded.
