Efficient lubrication of the overhead wires
Ideal solution for rhyme and icing
In the winter months, frost and ice on the overhead wires are a known problem in the rail sector. Stopping trains is absolutely unavoidable. Interflon enables you to put an end to these problems.
The Interflon IceGuard machine - a container-like construction that is placed on a train with a telescopic arm - sprays the high performance lubricant Interflon Iceguard at 50 km / h. The spray can be applied automatically with a very thin layer to the contact wire and thus offers protection against the phenomenon of frost and ice formation.
You benefit from several advantages. First, the spray can be pre-applied. In other words, you can schedule this form of preventive maintenance. Secondly, the spray also remains effective by applying it periodically. The adhesion is so good that the product does not drip from the overhead line. As a result, any contamination - even if the spray is no less than 95% biodegradable - is completely sidelined.
The IceGuard has proven that it prevents ice from sticking easily. Trains treated with Interflon Iceguard experience significantly less disruptions. Moreover the drivers indicates that they were significantly less affected by the shocks and flashing lights on the treated track than before.
In short, you reduce train delays, corrective maintenance, cable breaks and also increase the reliability of your rail network
