On the track of reduced friction and costs savings

Rail traffic causes an enormous amount of friction between the wheels and the rails. Steel-to-steel contact is very intensive, especially on bends, as can be heard only too well. The FluiLub lubrication system of BEKA reduces considerably these specific friction forces and thereby also the noise level. The fully automatic system sprays grease mixed with air between wheel flange and rail. Warning of every bend can be given via a sensor, after which precise lubrication can be applied at the minimum required dosage. Similarly, the rail head can also be lubricated accurately and economically.
The BEKA FluiLub system makes manual lubrication superfluous, decreases friction losses by 5 – 15% and reduces wear and tear. In this way BEKA enables you to make substantial savings in labour, energy and material costs.
