As a kind of railway fasteners, railway anchors also play a very important role in the entire railway line. When the train is running, the longitudinal force acting on the rail is often generated, which causes the rail to move longitudinally, and sometimes even drives the sleepers to move together. This longitudinal movement is called crawling. Crawling generally occurs in the main line of the double-track railway, the heavy vehicle direction of the single-track railway, the braking range on the long downhill and when entering the station. Track crawling often causes uneven rail seams, skewed sleepers and other phenomena, which is very destructive to the line, and even causes a small track runway, which endangers driving safety. Therefore, effective measures must be taken to prevent crawling, usually railway anchors and anti-climbing braces are used to prevent line crawling.
The pin-piercing railway anchor is composed of the pin of the rail clip with baffle. During installation, one side of the rail clamp clamps the rail bottom, and the other side wedges into the through pin, so that the entire railway anchor is firmly clamped to the rail bottom. In this way, when the rail is subjected to longitudinal resistance, because the baffle plate of the rail clamp is close to the sleeper, the sleeper and the track will prevent the rail from crawling. In order to give full play to the role of the railway anchor, anti-climbing braces are usually installed between the sleepers to connect 3 to 5 sleepers to jointly resist the rail crawling.
This is the end of the role of the railway anchor. I hope you can use this information to further understand the railway anchor and understand the role of the railway anchor.
