Rail Lubrication & Train Maintenance

ATS Electro-Lube’s lubrication systems for rail offer many advantages to the railway sector. 

Durable, reliable, and cost effective, our rail lubrication systems keep maintenance operatives off the tracks and ensure downtime is kept to a minimum.

The rail industry offers unique challenges for maintenance procedures. 

First of all, uptime is essential for any industry on which the public rely. Breakdowns and delays give rail operators a bad reputation, so keeping things running on time is crucial. 

The safety aspects of rail lubrication are a huge concern. We’ve all seen crews laying new track as trains speed by. It’s a dangerous job. being on the track is unavoidable for repairs, so it’s crucial to minimise the frequency repairs are needed. 

Underground systems pose another challenge. Gases and dust can build up in the tunnel systems. Ventilation is a key component in these networks, as well as lubrication systems which are safe for such environments. 

ATS Electro-Lube’s rail solutions are ATEX certified, and safe for any underground or explosive zone. In fact you’ll find our ATEX lubers on the world’s most famous subterranean rail network, the London Underground.

Our products offer up to 2 years of maintenance free lubrication, and they are second to none for reliability This greatly reduces the number of times the crew has to be on the track. 

Lubrication on a maintenance schedule often results in periods of over lubrication, followed by periods of under lubrication. Therefore rails and rolling stock are not always lubricated at optimal levels.

Using an ATS railway lubrication system ensures components are optimally lubricated at all times. This reduces friction and stress, leading to increased component life. ore importantly, it results in less failures, less downtime, and less repair costs.
