Gauge Face – GaugeShield

Application Systems

Improve Steering. Reduce Noise.

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. The GaugeShield gauge face application system creates a smooth interaction between the gauge face of the rail and the wheel flange to improve steering and to reduce noise.

The GaugeShield’s bar applicator consists of only three components that are built to last and easy to maintain in the field. With a patented spring or air spring loaded design, the bar applicator resists damage from hi-rail trucks or hollow worn wheels. Loram’s gauge face bar applicators are compatible with any industry standard gauge face lubricator and grease.

Loram’s reliable design requires very little maintenance and has sensors that capture the condition of the system at all times. To reduce the amount of gauge face units needed, Loram’s GaugeShield utilizes a single digital controller that is capable of controlling the output to two separate tracks.

The GaugeShield wayside system is available in two sizes to best fit your needs.
