MAINTAINING track geometry is key to the safe and efficient operations of a railroad. Failure to do so properly can lead to expensive track structure failures or even more costly and devastating derailments. Many railroad operators have expressed their growing concern of reduced track time for inspection and maintenance due to the constant growth of freight volume on railroads. As rail traffic has increased significantly, track degradation has also become greater, driving a larger volume of required geometry maintenance and inspection.
Protran Technology’s developments in cost-effective inspection systems and increased tamper production techniques are leading the way in railway maintenance. The Callisto track geometry measurement systems can be integrated into machine controls in Harsco Rail’s tampers and Hy-Rail vehicles, to allow for an easy, integrated solution to inspecting geometry at a higher frequency for a lower cost.
