The hopper outfitting is used to refill ballast on tracks and points, during maintenance or construction of new railway lines.
The railworthiness of the Sgmns wagon means that the outfitting can also be used to transport ballast from the quarry to the worksite, like a classic goods wagon.
The hopper has eight outlets to unload ballast both on and around the track and a completely automatic unloading system: the outlet cylinders are opened and closed by electrohydraulic controls.
PRECISE, OPTIMAL UNLOADING
Eight hydraulically operated outlets allow precise unloading to reduce profiling to a minimum.
HIGH QUALITY, PERFORMANCE AND COMFORT
Robust structure and lower centre of gravity and top edge of the drop side than standard.
Just one wagon transports ballast from the quarry directly to the work site, avoiding unloading from trucks and loading on work site hoppers.
Less road and more rail traffic.
Notably reduces overall supply costs.
MORE EFFICIENT LOGISTICS
No need to set up construction sites at stations near the work site.
Optimal lighting system for maximum operator safety
The hopper is produced in compliance with the following standards:
- Directive 2006/42/EC
- UNI EN 14033-3
When a vehicle is delivered, a team of specialised technicians will carry out on-site tests to ensure the machine and all its parts work perfectly.
Training can also be provided on correct function and basic maintenance for staff who will use the machine.
A team of skilled technicians, with a fully-equipped mobile workshop, offer rapid, effective service to solve any problem or malfunction.
On request, SRT vehicles can be equipped with a remote monitoring system. This self-powered data transmission system is connected to sensors on the vehicle and monitors the main operating parameters of the machine:
- position and speed
- (maximum) braking efficiency
- component position and number of movements
- engine conditions
- operator/driver identification
The advantages and benefits of a remote monitoring system
- A low-cost way of quickly obtaining information on the state of the vehicle, vital for reducing maintenance time and cost.
- Knowing the distance the vehicle has travelled, to determine wear and tear on mechanical parts
- Discovering brake or engine malfunctions
- Always knowing who is driving the vehicle, to see if there is any correlation between malfunctions and staff conduct
- Recording machine function parameters to obtain concrete data for future maintenance schedules
