We are an innovative and experienced team, developing systems that solve worldwide railway problems relating to noise, wear and tear, friction, vibrations, jolts, corrugation, maintenance problems, and railway working conditions. The BREMEX ANNSYS 'Basic'; a rail break anti-noise system; the CL-E1 application systems for rails and DRYproANNSYS on-board system are economically efficient and environmentally friendly technologies. All our solutions are supported by revolutionary WONROS™ (Wear Out and Noise Reduction On Source) technology.
Main advantages of WONROS™ technology supported systems:
During braking, friction between wagon wheels and rail brakes generates disturbing noise. Elpa's BREMEX ANNSYS system, for use at hump yards, shunting stations, classification yards and marshalling yards, reduces power of noise (squealing) by 99.9%.
Main advantages of the system are:
The BREMEX ANNSYS 'Basic' device is suitable for all types of rail brakes and it is usually placed at the track before the brake or brakes. By using one device it is possible that more brakes are supplied simultaneously.
The applicators apply specially developed environmentally friendly friction agent directly onto the part of the wagon wheel flank being in contact with the rail brake. Timely and precise measuring of applied material onto a wagon wheel creates an intermediate layer of material which is decomposed thermally in the braking process. Friction agent doesn't have any negative influence on braking properties and noise reduction is achieved as soon as device starts to operate.
Onboard DRYproANNSYS systems are designed for wheel flanges wear out and noise reduction, caused by friction between wheels and rails.
DRYproANNSYS 'BS' onboard system is mainly used for tramways, suburban trains, metros, cave trains, which don't have their own compressed air at disposal on board. The appliactors apply the composite material directly on the side and radius surfaces of the wheel flange.
DRYproANNSYS 'SS' onboard system is mainly used for locomotives which have their own compressed air at disposal on board. Composite material is directly applied on Qr radius on wheel flange with spray nozzle.
Main advantages of DRYproANNSYS systems are:
Specific advantages of DRYproANNSYS 'BS' systems are:
Specific advantages of DRYproANNSYS 'SS' systems are:
CL-E1 system reduces squeal noise on sharp-radius curves and wear out caused by friction between rail and wheel.
The system can apply the friction agent with boreholes or with blades. The boreholes are made into the rail head, what enables expanding of the material onto the precisely defined point on the rail head. The boreholes offer, despite extremely low consumption of friction agent, high noise and wear reduction. The results had shown a decrease of the squealing noise up to 14dBA at low frequency and up to 30dBA at high frequency, which is, in comparison to other noise solutions, a significant added value to noise mitigation on railways. The results also showed that by using of appropriate friction agent (CHFC material) the wear out was reduced more than 2.5 times which proportionally reduces the maintenance costs of railroads and rail vehicles.
The system with boreholes can be installed also in the middle of curve and doesn't need to be removed when ordinary works on railways occurs.
