Operational Testing of Innovative and Intelligent Rail Lubrication System
Operational Testing of Innovative and Intelligent Rail Lubrication System
Report Number: IDEA-24
This project developed an innovative rail lubrication system for transit systems by applying techniques tested on heavy haul railroad systems. The adaptation involved redesigning the system for commuter rail, and using appropriate consumable lubricants. The work was performed in collaboration with MERTA. The new system incorporates a computer control mechanism for delivering optimal amounts of lubricant and is compatible with units currently in service on MERTA and Amtrak.
