Stress Free Temperature


Stress free temperature measuring device

  • Non-destructive measurement process for determining neutral temperature of continuous welded rail tracks

  • It measures the magnetic characteristics of the rail to be measured under two different temperatures

  • The measurement can be executed without disturbing the train traffic

  • The new RailScan method enables the operator himself to calibrate the device to the given track

  • The automatic calibration procedure drives the operator step-by-step through the process from entering the real neutral temperature as first step

  • The new RailScan measuring program continuously checks the measuring results and compares them with the ones measured during the calibration and decides whether the given value complies with the calibration

SidePull light

Stress free temperature measuring device

  • This device is the new developed Light version of our SidePull device. It is a low weight solution with easier and faster way of application

  • It is measurement process for determining the real neutral temperature of continuous welded rail tracks, working under mechanical chord stress principle

  • After realising one section of the rail to be measured and putting it on rollers the device pulls it to the other rail remained in fix position

  • Meanwhile it measures the force, the displacement and the temperature

  • The real neutral temperature can be calculated from these three features with 1°C accuracy

  • Track closure is needed since the measuring procedure requires the release of the track

  • Cut and welding of the rail is not required by the process
