Flange wheels and rail wheels are specially designed for industrial, mining or railway vehicles running on rail tracks. These wheels are mainly used in crane, transfer cart, train, bogie, excavator, etc.
Rail Wheel Specifications:
Material: CL60, AAR B grade, AAR C grade, AAR D grade, ER7, ER8, ER9, IRS 19/93, etc.
Size: Wheel diameter ranges from 900 to 1250mm
Standards: TB / T 2817, AAR M-107, UIC 812-3, EN 13262, BS 5892 PART 3, IRS 19/93, JIS E 5402-1, KSR 9221, GOST 10791, etc.
Testing: Chemical analysis, Metallographic, Mechnical analysis, Ultrasonic testing, Magnetic testing, Impact testing, Hardness testing, Surface quality and dimensions.
Types of Rail Wheel:
1. Double Flange Wheel
Double flange wheels can ensure the best safety and operability in places where heavy loads, high impact or uneven loads are common. Double flange wheels are very suitable for lumber kilns, material transfer vehicles, marine tracks, cranes and factory or mining carts.
2. Single Flange Wheel
Single flange wheels are ideal for all kinds of heavy commercial and industrial rail cars-usually used in forestry, factory, mining and offshore loading industries. Wheels can be used for driven wheels or fixed wheels, and can be processed to meet specific rail dimensions.
