with high-speed rail cleaning laser technology
Autumn can be a dangerous time for trains. When fallen leaves from nearby trees are crushed into the rails they form an oily film that makes train wheels lose their grip.
Rail traffic is interrupted as low Coefficient of Friction (COF) levels stop trains from accelerating and braking normally, leading to severe delays and accidents. Train wheels slip and block more easily, creating flat spots on wheels that result in high maintenance bills.
LPS products help rail networks detect and improve the COF levels of a slip-slide environment and minimize the impacts of weather events. Keeping leaves off the line and trains running on time.
