“At the moment, the fleet of Siemens INSPIRO vehicles that is operating on the Warsaw Metro lines is equipped with NSP-WFL (formerly SLB-FLS-2000) solid stick wheel flange lubrication system offered by AW Solutions.”
SIEMENS Mobility Sp. z o.o.
“After a two-year period of use, we observed a considerable (about 40%-50%) decrease in the pace of the wear of wheel flanges compared to locomotives not equipped with the lubrication system.”
Rail Polska Sp. z o.o.
“We declare that, using solid stick wheel flange lubrication system [NSP-WFL, formerly SLB-FLS-2000] extended the longevity of wheel sets by nearly 50%.”
WISKOL Sp. z o.o.
“We declare that [NSP-WFL, formerly SLB-FLS-2000] solid sticks can be successfully used for wheel flange lubrication in locomotives’ wheelsets, diminishing thereby their wear.”
Freightliner PL Spółka z o.o.
“We have been using […] 300mm long applicators with interlocking soy sticks […] for over a year and we have been very pleased with the results with a marked reduction in wheel flange wear where the applicators have been fitted. We will be extending their use over the next few years.”
Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways
“Performed observations revealed much lower consumption of the [NSP-WFL, formerly SLB-FLS-2000] sticks for lubricating the wheel flange as against to currently used. ”
DB Cargo Polska S.A.
“The applied layer of lubricant stays resistant to weather conditions and it is not removed from the metal surfaces after precipitations. The soybean oil-based sticks characterize themselves with lower wearing at steel wheels surfaces than the graphite sticks.“
DCT Gdańsk SA
“The consumption of [NSP-WFL, formerly SLB-FLS-2000] solid lubricants is 46.2 % lower compared to currently used”
Express Rail Link Sdn Bhd
“Conclusions: the consumption of [competitive] solid lubricants is 2.6 times greater than [NSP-WFL, formerly SLB-FLS-2000].”
JSC „Lietuvos geležinkeliai“
“From above, it emerges that on locomotives subjected to observation, the wear of […] soy sticks was about 50% lower than of the competing provider.”
PKP CARGO S.A.
“In the following weeks, wear of the [NSP-WFL, formerly SLB-FLS-2000] sticks were already two times lower and amounted to approx. 15-20mm per week (10mm / 4300km).”
„PKP Intercity” Spółka Akcyjna
“Performed operations have shown a few times lower consumption of the lubricant for wheel
flanges (about 20mm/10 000km) compared to the previously used.”
"Przewozy Regionalne" sp. z o.o.
“Given this, the consumption of [NSP-WFL, formerly SLB-FLS-2000] lubricating sticks was twice lower than the consumption of the currently used lubricating sticks.”
Szybka Kolej Miejska Sp. z o.o.
“As the results were good, from the technical and economical point of view, FERTAGUS continues to use this product until today. “
Fertagus: Travessia do Tejo, Transportes S.A
“Based on the test results and price, we have decided to use soy sticks on our fleet.”
