Application Systems

Loram has the most advanced top of rail and gauge face friction management application systems in the industry. These accurate and reliable application systems identify and adjust to the speed of each train to consistently apply the precise amount of friction modifier or grease to the rail.

LORAM Friction Management Application Systems

Top of Rail – TracShield

TracShield is the industry’s leading wayside top of rail friction management system. It senses the passing of train wheels over the TracShield’s durable sensors and automatically dispenses a controlled amount of friction modifier to the top of the rail.

Top of Rail – YardGlide

YardGlide® ensures a smoother operating railroad yard. Usually installed after each group retarder in a hump yard or after the master retarder in a flat yard, YardGlide ensures proper co-efficient of friction for each car.

Gauge Face – GaugeShield

Loram’s GaugeShield® lubrication system is an intelligent wayside system that senses the passing of train wheels over the GaugeShield’s durable sensors and automatically dispenses a controlled quantity of grease to the gauge face of the rail.
