Rail fish plates, also known as railway fishplates, rail joint bars or splicing bars, are metal bars bolted to the ends of two steel rails, connecting them together to form a rail.
As a professional rail fish plate supplier, Kingrail Parts can provide AREMA, BS, UIC, DIN, JIS, African and South American rail fish plates of different standards for light rail, heavy rail and crane rail.
Types of Rail Fish Plates:
In the rail system, the railway fish plate is an important part that connects the two rails together. In practical application, we most commonly produce the following three types of railway fish plates:
1. Bolted rail joints
2. Compromised rail joints
3. Insulated rail joints
For rail fish plates, bolted connections are often used to join the rails together before welding. When connecting two rails with different sections, a compromise fish plate is often used. Insulated rail joints are often used as bonded or non-bonded joints.
Although the performance of these three rail joints is different, they still have many similar characteristics:
Use all bolts and rebar and create discontinuities on the running surface of the rail
This discontinuity accelerates rail degradation around rail joints when the train is running
Rai Fish Plates Standards:
According to different rail sections, we can produce fish plates according to international standards such as UIC 60, UIC 54, U33, BS 80A, BS 90A, IRS 52 KG, IRS 90 Lbs, 115 RE, 136 RE, TJ 45, TJ 37, RN 45, etc.
