Rail Brakes Rail Brake
Rail Brakes are spring set and HYDRAULICALLY OR ELECTRICALLY released. Once released, it hangs above the rail at predesigned clearance. Brake mounting clearance and the existing rail vertical deviation affects achievable braking force and the life span of the springs within the brake.
Traditional practices in brake design dictate that shoe to rail clearance is limited and brake shoe travel is restricted in order to prolong the life of the springs.
New concept BRELX design and spring selection allows for unrestricted spring movement for greater rail height fluctuation, still ensuring long spring life. Self Adjusting Rail Brakes have a constant braking force over the ±19 mm allowable rail deviation.
