Zetica Rail has won contracts to carry out railway asset scanning car (RASC) surveys in Australia and the USA in 2012. The RASC is a multi-sensor hy-rail vehicle-based inspection system, comprising one or more of the following capabilities:
- Rail radar (GPR)
- Track geometry
- Gauge face rail wear
- Laser profiling – ballast volume and structure clearances
- Video inspection
Zetica can fit the systems to client vehicles and will run the surveys with just a single track occupation and provide integrated results as part of the service. The systems are also available to purchase if required.
Asger Eriksen CEO of Zetica Rail says: "Given the fact that only a small percent of the condition of trackbed assets can be monitored by visual inspections and very often subsurface problems go unnoticed, the RASC offers a much more holistic assessment for the same time on track required to carry out a visual inspection. The combination of GPR, track geometry, laser profiling and video, combined in a unique maintenance planning tool, offers the following practical benefits:
- Reduced risk of derailment
- Objective prioritisation of maintenance
- Reduced cost of maintenance
- Optimised asset life
- Maintenance of a comprehensive above and below-ground asset register
- Understanding of the root cause of track geometry faults"
ZARR utilises ground penetrating radar (GPR) and is a uniquely powerful desk study tool to...
