Axles Running Hot and Locked Brakes – Risk Factors for Operational Safety

Axles running hot and locked brakes are the greatest dangers facing an operating system. A hot box can lead to fractures of axle journals which might cause a derailment.

 

Considerable operational hazards are caused by locked brakes, e.g. due to overheated loosened wheel rims as well as broken wheel disks. Additionally, locked brakes can cause fire and are therefore one of the main reasons for the formation of flat spots.

 

Intelligent Solutions for International Standards

The PHOENIX MB system is able to identify all types of axle boxes and braking systems, currently running on international rail systems and reliably detects dangerous excess temperature, up to a speed of 500 km/h.

 

An infrared optic that repeatedly scans the undercarriage (MB = Multi Beam) with eight measuring points and a width of 120 mm is the heart of the system. The integrated signal processor is able to convert the results exactly and quickly.

 

Besides an attractive purchase price the modular construction guarantees a quick and cost effective service of the system. PHOENIX MB functions under all worldwide conditions – from intercity to long distance haulage, from the Polar Regions to the desert.
