Proper Rail Maintenance Leads to the right Results
The list of works included in the concept of the current content of railway tracks helps to maintain the relative position, the correct interaction of parts of the track’s upper structure. Below are some tips for repairing railway tracks, taking into account the specifics of the current content of the railway. It is necessary to control the track position in the plan and to prevent a sharp difference in track width in order to prevent breakdowns along the width and its direction. The use of technology in rail deburring device also comes useful now.
Align the track mainly along one rail line and always on the curves on the outside. Associated with the lifting of the track, the work must be completed by straightening and additionally pour in the ballast prism to the established norm in height and width. Qualitatively seal after bots ballast, which is associated with its so-called.
Such measures will prevent the occurrence of disorders of the railway track by drawdowns and level. Prevention of theft is of paramount importance, the purpose of which is to maintain a long stable location of the track. The safety of all elements of the road during the repair of the railway track is the main task. To do this, it is necessary to regularly check and carefully strengthen the anti-theft, thus ensuring a continuous fit to the sleepers, replace the defective ones, tighten the bolts in the joints, tighten the mortgages, terminal screws and bolts, and also replace the unusable ones.
At high temperatures, in order to prevent the loss of track stability, it is extremely important to keep the rail clearances in a normal state, to monitor the proper operation of anti-theft means, while doing track work, not to weaken the stability of the track, which creates the prerequisites for ejection, to eliminate the track differences in time. If there are rails with a length of about 25 m more than 2 or more, and rails 12.5 m long with 3 or more connected gaps in a row, you need to adjust them, in the case of gaps that are not normal.
Service Life of the Track
In order to extend the track’s service life and prevent early problems, it is important to regulate deviations in time, in terms of level, plan and profile, eliminating frustrations primarily at the joints and adjusting gaps. This also applies to railway access roads.
The butt bolts lubricate and tighten, in addition to partial reinforcement, all the way in spring and autumn. The worn butt pads are replaced, during which the crushed rail ends are guided, and then the rolling surfaces of the rails are ground.
Reinforced overhaul of the track is designed to completely replace the track grate, assembled from new materials of the track’s upper structure, accompanied by the cleaning of crushed stone to a depth of more than 40 cm or the replacement of other types of ballast.
Overhaul of the track
Overhaul of the track is intended to replace the track’s upper structure with a more powerful or less worn one, mounted either entirely from old materials, or from old ones combined with new ones, and is accompanied by the cleaning of crushed stone ballast to a depth of 25 to 40 cm, as well as partial updating of other types ballast.
