Sliding Wheel Detection

The MRX Sliding Wheel Detector is a patented innovation providing automated roll-by inspection for the rolling state of wheels.

Typically the systems are installed to inspect for sliding wheels on unloaded bulk wagons when departing from a terminal.

Sliding wheel alarms can be provided by local visual/audio indicators, by synthesised voice announcement on a designated train radio channel and/or telemetry link to a remote control centre.

Typical problems which can be identified include:

      Malfunctioning brake rigging

      Hand Brakes not released

      Seized axle box bearing
