For the Rail & Transport Industry

Our teams at Schenck Process, have proudly seen our UK site awarded with Logistics Optimisation Innovator of the Year for Transport 2019, by SME News.

The announcement comes not long after Schenck Process were re-accredited by the Railway Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme (RISQS), for solutions supplied to the UK Rail Network. A prestigious accreditation that acknowledges our safe and trusted supply of rail solutions.

Helping acquire these recent achievements, are our Rail Sanding and Weighing systems.

The re-filling of sand boxes or hoppers on trains and trams is an important process to ensure the correct operation of the vehicle’s braking system and to assist with wheel traction, when tracks are slippery.

For safer transport and more efficient handling, our specialist teams at Schenck Process developed both fixed and mobile sand handling systems. These systems are engineered to address problems associated with sand box filling within the rail and tram industry, which too commonly include manual handling of sand bags. This often results in material spillage, unnecessary labour and an inefficient material handling process.

The Schenck Process MULTIRAIL SandPiper static or mobile sand filling stations instead provide a flexible, non-spill, dust free system, which are simple to operate, reduce manual handling significantly, as well as prevent material spillage.

The systems pneumatically and efficiently pump sand from a hopper location into the sand box on the train or tram.

For precise weighing during transport, of an entire train or rail-wagons, Schenck Process’s MULTIRAIL technology offers solutions that help make rail transport processes safe, accurate, economical and controlled.

With the intension to help prevent track derailment, our train weighing solutions include track-based systems that measure a train’s load, for safer transport and accurate measurement. In addition to this, they also provide recognition of any wheel damage.

Our rail weight solutions also help allow and compile legal-for-trade weight data as the basis for calculating the weight of individual wagons and trains. Software solutions can be used as a stand-alone or as an integrated application.
