Rail head wetting system SKBS

The wheels carry out a relative movement along the curved tracks particularly during curve runs. This leads to friction between the driving and running surfaces which causes the well-known and extremely disturbing squealing noise. We have developed an effective solution to eliminate the problem. The Rail Head Wetting System SKBS.

Finely dosed lubricant is applied directly on the running surface through special lubrication channels and moisten the tracks precisely at the spot in which the friction and thereby, the highly frequent squealing occurs. In the aftermath thereof, the cross and longitudinal slipping of the wheels that are subjected to less loads becomes noiseless and wearing reduces because groove formation on the running surfaces of the tracks is also prevented in the aftermath of such application.
