Ground Contacts (Frost)

Frost® Ground Contacts The mechanical structure of our frost® ground contacts meet effective national and international standards and directives. Material pairing is consistently optimised. The design resp. working direction of the carbon brush is distinguished between axial and radial active contact system. Conventional round brush designs have been replaced by multiple brush designs in the area of standard applications. The reasons for this are, among others, the increased possible power transmission and in part, the simpler make-up of the contacts. We have consistently continued to develop the successful path to multiple brush contacts and in the process, devised the successful frost® pressure system.

High Speed Portable Derail

High Speed Portable Derail

A derail is a device that will derail any railroad rolling stock, including mainline locomotives. Employees working on or around the track with nearby rolling stock, must be protected by a derail. As the flange of the train wheel comes in contact with the derail, it lifts the wheel and deflects it away from the rail head, and thus, the wheels are halted by becoming imbedded in the track ballast.
 
The High Speed Portable Derail was tested at 20+ mph with a 6 Axle Locomotive, loaded to 384,000 lbs.
