Luoyang Sunrui RPST

Railway Elastic Fastening System and Composite Sleepers

Luoyang Sunrui RPST

Luoyang Sunrui Rubber & Plastic Science and Technology (Sunrui RPST) manufactures and distributes custom services for noise and vibration control in the rail industry.

The company’s elastic fastening systems and composite products are used in the field of rail transportation throughout Asia, such as for metro, high-speed railway and intercity rail.

Sunrui RPST’s elastic fasteners, anti-vibration slab mats, composite sleepers, and composite emergency platforms are widely used throughout China-based metro services.

Elastic fasteners for vibration reduction and anti-corrugation

The GJ series elastic fastener contains five different variants, and is suitable for vibration and noise control. With a vibration reduction of between 5dB and 12dB, all Sunrui RPST fasteners can be maintained on-site.

Using the GJ-3 fastener and its upgrade GJ-32 can not only control the vibration (5-8dB) but also has an anti-corrugation effect. The corrugation on rail surfaces becomes lighter just after three months. Compared to cologne egg fasteners, the corrugation shows later and lighter.

The GJ-3 elastic fastener is one of the most preferred rail vibration control solutions in China, and has occupied more than half of the elastic fastener market share in mainland China.

Anti-vibration slab mats using mass-spring-system

Featuring studs of textile-reinforced rubber, anti-vibration slab mats are used under the ballast track bed or slab as elastic support in urban rail transit.

Anti-vibration slab mats demonstrate high levels of vibration isolation and fatigue-resistance, as well as simplified installation and maintenance.

Sunrui RPST offers a wide range of anti-vibration solutions for urban rail transit, such as:

  • 5dB~8dB: GJ-5 or GJ-1
  • 8dB~10dB: GJ-3 fastener, GJ-32 fastener or GJ-6 elastic fastener (for turnout)
  • 10dB~12dB: GJ-4
  • 12dB~15dB: Anti-vibration slab mat
  • 15dB~20dB: High-performance damping ballast system for rail transportation

Environment-friendly, lightweight composite sleepers

Fibre-reinforced foamed urethane (FFU) composite sleepers are made of rigid polyurethane reinforced with continuous glass fibres.

As a lightweight, high-strength, environment-friendly product, FFU composite is a cost-effective alternative to timber or concrete.

Synthetic sleepers are widely used on different types of rail transport system, particularly on switches, turnouts, bridges / viaduct and other projects in high-speed railway and metro railway construction.

Sunrui RPST’s composite sleepers have been installed on metro systems since 2009, and the company has a 70% market share in mainland China.

Composite platforms for emergency evacuation

Composite platforms for emergency evacuation are manufactured by phenolic aldehyde resin, with the matrix material and glass fibre as the reinforcing material.

The platform is made of platform grids, beams, supported brackets and handrails, which are installed in the tunnel or overhead railway. In case of fire or emergency, people can escape from the tunnel by the emergence evacuation platform.

The lightweight, high-strength product is highly resistant to fire impact, aging and corrosion, as well as low-smoke density and toxicity levels.

The platform can also be used on offshore oil platform, pedestrian passageways, ship decks, in coal mining scenarios and other emergency escape routes.

Tianjin Metro

Tianjin Metro is a rapid transit network serving the city of Tianjin, China. Tianjin was the second city in the history of China to operate a subway metro.

Living On The Rail? The Metro Superstructure Project

This is a Beijing local satellite image and shows Beijing Metro Line 9 Guogongzhuang depot, taken in 2016. Now just above the depot are built eight buildings with 17 to 26 floors. This metro superstructure project started in 2011.

How to Choose Vibration Reduction Track Plans for Metro Lines

Vibration and noise is harmful to human health and buildings. The longer a man is exposed to vibration and noise, the greater the risk of health effects and mental suffering.The longer a building is exposed to vibration and noise, the greater the risk of structure effects and mechanical disorders.
