Recent installations in 5 French SNCF Technicentres for the maintenance of the new Régiolis trains have shown: the ideal extraction version in maintenance halls with stationary work platforms is the innovative RailCombi solution.
The flexible exhaust extraction system combines the benefits of the RailBridge system and mobile swivel arms: reliable diesel exhaust fume removal, optimum performance and high cost-effectiveness. Positioned in between two roads in delivers exhaust extract on both roads, the mobile swivel arms rotate to the left or to the right.
We developed the RailCombi extraction system primarily for railway depots in which both electrical and diesel-operated vehicles can be serviced. Retractable overhead lining (OLE) makes it possible to maintain diesel railcars even in electrified depots. Strict rules and regulations to protect the life and health of the railway employees apply to maintenance operations.
The Blaschke RailCombi diesel fume extraction system meets all safety specifications that apply in combo maintenance halls. An overhead wire safety unit continuously monitors the end positions and the parking positions of the capture units either mechanically or electronically. The extract system cannot be switched on while the overhead line is in operation. The capture hoods are lowered securely and precisely from a large height and positioned directly over the exhaust pipe. This ensures the highest safety level for your employees.
Four, six or more platform units can be remote controlled at each point via the maintenance platform with the RailCombi system. The capture hoods are lowered securely and precisely at a large height and are sent to the exhaust pipe. A strong fan unit ensures effective extraction, as well as engine testing with high motor speeds.
Your benefits at a glance:
- Combines RailBridge and a swivel arm system
- Ideal for depots with a retractable overhead line (OLE)
- This ensures the highest level of safety
Diesel engine exhaust emissions (DEEE) is recognised as a category 1 human carcinogen (‘definite’) for lung cancer
It’s a key legal duty to prevent or adequately control DEEE for:
- Passenger and freight operators (station and depot)
- Rolling stock manufacturer and leasing companies
- Infrastructure managers and contractors
- Employers for their employees and non-employees (COSHH)
