Railway steel rail, also known as steel rail, is widely used in railway track systems. Coupled with the cooperation with the turnout, the train can run without turning other directions. Under normal circumstances, the rail is composed of two parallel steel rails, which are stably laid on the railroad sleepers. With the development of the railway industry, steel has been widely used in the industry.
Kingrail Parts is a company specializing in railway steel rails manufacturing and customization. With more than 30 years of experience in the steel rail manufacturing industry, we can provide a variety of rail tracks for sale.
Railway Steel Rail Standards:
China Railroad Track Standards:
1. Crane rail: QU120, QU100, QU80, QU70. They are mostly composed of manganese steel.
2. Heavy rail: 38kg, 43kg, 50kg standards are widely used. In addition, some high-speed and large-capacity lines all use 60kg rails.
3. Light rail: Light rail can also be divided into GB (Chinese National Standard) 9kg, 12kg, 15kg, 22kg, 30kg/m and YB (Ministry of Metallurgy Standard) 8, 18, 24kg/m, etc.
International Railroad Track Standards:
In the world railway track market, there are many typical types. For example, the British BS series (such as 90A, 80A, 75A, 75R, 60A, etc.), the German DIN series, the American ASCE series (such as 115RE, 136RE), the Japanese JIS series and the International Railway Union UIC series (such as UIC54, UIC60). See more information in the file: International Standard Specification for Rails.
Types of Railroad Steel Rail for Sale:
1. ASCE Railway:
ASCE railway is a type of railway defined by the American Society of Civil Engineering. It is widely used in light rails such as American railroad light rails or temporary traction rails in forest areas, mines, and construction areas. The height of the railing is equal to the width of the foot.
2. 115RE rail
The 115RE rail has a standard profile in accordance with AREMA. Its nominal weight is 56.9kg/m. As a kind of heavy rail, it has high strength and is mainly used for mining rails. 115RE rails are heat treated to control the hardness and strength of the steel. 115RE rails are superior to many other rails in terms of hardness, strength, wear resistance, and corrosion resistance.
3. UIC60 rail
UIC60 Rail is mainly used for heavy-duty railways. It is a very popular product in the international railway track market. It is widely used in high-speed railways in France and Germany. UIC60 rail has the characteristics of good ductility, high fatigue strength and moderate fracture toughness. Its good chemical properties improve the performance to a certain extent and keep the rails in good condition.
4. Second-hand rails
Second-hand rails refer to rails or rails that have been used on heavy-duty trunk railways and other busy lines, and are now re-used in light transportation industrial areas. It is mainly used for temporary transportation lines of 10-20 tons, light locomotive lines, crane rails, and driving rails laid in forest areas, mining areas, factories, and construction sites.
5. Crane rails
Crane rails are specially used to lay rails for cranes, such as railway cranes, bridge cranes, gantry cranes and other types of cranes. It provides a stable and firm runway for the crane to move forward and backward during heavy load operations. The crane rail profile has the characteristics of low height, wide head and thick web.
6. DIN536 rail
DIN536 rail is a crane rail used for bridge gantry and floor cranes of manufacturers such as ports, docks, shipyards, warehouses, etc. It complies with European DIN standards. This standard applies to hot-rolled flat-bottomed crane rails (Type A). Its height is low, and its head width and web thickness are large
