NSP-WFL bio-based wheel flange lubrication system
NSP-WFL reduces the coefficient of friction, minimizes wear of wheel flanges and rail, while saving fuel and limiting noise.
To improve the wheel-rail cooperation, the system lubricates the most vulnerable areas of wear. Solid sticks are pressed against the wheel flange with spring. The thin coating is being passively transferred through rail to subsequent wheels. Solid stick is the cheapest and most reliable method of wheel flange lubrication, and has been in operation for many years now. Effectively used on freight and passenger locomotives, metro and commuter lines, and even heritage railways.
NSP-WFL is a proven system. It is cleaner, simpler and less problematic than on-board spray or trackside systems, and far more durable than any other solid lubricant. Our solid lubricant sticks are comprised of soy and corn extracts mixed with graphite.
Solid stick, the cheapest and most reliable method of flange lubrication has been in operation for decades.
Wheel flange lubrication system consists of three elements: solid lubricant, spring-loaded applicator, and holding bracket positioning the applicator towards the wheel. The simplicity and reliability of that solution makes it the preferred choice of train operators.
