Loram BridgeGlide™ provides automatic track lubrication on bridges using a clear, environmentally-friendly Friction Modifier. BridgeGlide™ has a lightening-protected lubrication system that is proven to reduces lateral forces, maintenance costs, and keeping noise down all while keeping bridges environmentally clean.


How it Works

BridgeGlide™ is economical to buy, operate, and maintain. The computer-controlled BridgeGlide™ system precisely applies Friction Modifier where it is needed with no expensive waste. Your bridge maintenance staff will benefit from safe and clean bridge conditions since there is no greasy mess. BridgeGlide’s™ intelligent computer does not lubricate locomotive wheels like greasers, and applies the correct amount of Friction Modifier for different friction needs for up hill trains and down hill trains. 

 

Benefits

• Reduces bridge noise and vibrations

• Reduces bridge MOW costs

• Reduces the stress state of the bridge

• Reduces lateral forces, flange friction, and top-of-rail wear

 

Installation, Maintenance, and Performance
