Loram Maintenance of Way Inc. acquired all the assets of Tranergy Corporation in 2011. Acquiring Tranergy allowed Loram to further its leadership position in rail life extension by combining rail grinding with friction management.
Friction Management Systems
Loram's innovative friction management systems are designed to improve rail vehicle performance. Our unique line of cutting edge, ecologically clean products are field-proven to be the most effective solutions on the market. Our expertise primarily supports railroads, but extends to most rail-based forms of transportation.
TracShield™ is the patented wayside track lubrication system that lubricates the top-of-rail using an environmentally clean lubricant.
TracGlide™ is the patented onboard track lubrication system that lubricates the top-of-rail using an environmentally clean lubricant.
BridgeGlide™ provides automatic track lubrication on bridges using a clear, environmentally-friendly Friction Modifier. BridgeGlide's lightening-protected lubrication system is proven to reduce lateral forces, maintenance costs, and rail noise, all while keeping bridges environmentally clean.
CraneGlide™ is a state-of-the-art friction management system that optimizes overhead crane movement and performance.
SwitchEnhancer™ is an automatic railroad switch lubrication system that lubricates all critical surfaces: switch plates, switch points, mating surfaces, top of switch rails, and stock rails.
YardGlide™ is an intelligent lubrication system that applies an environmentally clean Friction Modifier on the wheels of a rolling railcar in a yard. The Friction Modifier keeps car speed consistent and reduces wheel lateral forces on curves, while lowering the probability of collisions and derailments.
