TracShield is the patented wayside track friction management system for the top-of-rail that uses an environmentally clean friction modifier. TracShield applies a friction modifier on both rails every time a train passes over the application area. The Friction Modifier (FM) is then carried by the wheels of the train for up to 4 miles. The directionally-controlled system is activated by rugged wheel detectors which allow precision dispensing of computer-controlled quantitites of Friction Modifier. TracShield's reliable design requires very little maintenance. Because of its accurate fluid dispensation, one tankful will last longer than most others. With the optional Remote Monitoring System and Loram Analytics Services, TrandShield customers can monitor benefits and reliability.
