PROBLEM

Finding an effective and efficient method of cleaning locomotives.

 

SOLUTION

Building a cleaning tunnel equipped with an arch of spray nozzles to apply cleaning solution and blast clean with high pressure.

 

 

SPECIFICATIONS

Pressure.............................70 Kg/cm2 / 68.6 bar /1000 psi
Flow (each) ........................................145 lpm /38 US gpm
Temperature ............................................................Ambient
Fluid...............................................................................Water
Duty cycle...........................................Seasonal, 24 Hr/day
Drive (two).........................................30 hp. electric motor

 

BENEFITS

  • Reduces manpower from 4 men to 1.
  • Reduces cleaning time per locomotive from 2 hours to 15 minutes.
  • Improves quality of cleaning.
  • Operates with extremely low maintenance.

OPERATION

The high pressure cleaning system consists of a low pressure chemical pump to apply degreasers is used to for locomotive cleaning.

 


This high pressure system delivers the water through a series of nozzles blasting the locomotive with high pressure as it passes through the cleaning tunnel to remove dirt and grime from the surface.

 


The previous hand cleaning method required four men and at least two hours per locomotive.

 


The new automated high pressure cleaning system, situated at the end of a rip track, requires only one man to monitor the cleaning operation of the system.

 


Maintenance on the cleaning system over a four-year period included only the replacing of some nozzles. nbsp;
