Loram TracGlideTM is a patentent onboard track lubrication system that lubricates the top-of-rail using an environmentally clean Friction Modifier.

How it Works

TracGlideTM applies a Friction Modifier on both rails in both directions every time a train passes over the application area. The Friction Modifier is then carried by the wheels of the train for up to one mile. The system is activated by rugged wheel detectors, which applies precision, computer-controlled quantities of Friction Modifier.


TracGlide’s reliable design requires very little maintenance. Because of its precision dispensing of fluid, one tankful will last longer than most others in the industry. The intelligent system is capable of distinguishing between locomotive and car wheels, which enables the locomotive to pass without having any Friction Modifier applied.
