Tested and approved against the European Standard EN 14730-1 Norm, the PLA Evo delivers improved metallurgical and mechanical behaviour, to optimise quality, lengthen the life of the weld and save time for the welder.
An improved metallurgical quality has been developed to maximise the life of the weld and reduce maintenance costs.
Designed for compatibility with Pandrol’s High Flow Preheater and Mould, delivering ergonomic improvements for the welder and saving time.
The 3-piece mould design eliminates discontinuity under the rail foot and improves the quality and lengthen the life of the weld.
PLA Evo is a fully supported process, and full training can be provided locally by Pandrol welding experts or directly at the Pandrol Training Academy.
The mould design has been developed to optimise the hydraulic geometry by improving flow.
The PLA Evo process comes with improved performance and delivers continuous geometry under the rail foot thanks to the 3-piece moulds.
Tested and approved against the European Standard which defines the laboratory tests and requirements for approval of an aluminothermic welding process using welds produced in workshop conditions.
Optimised thermal conditions are created by balancing the pre-heating, the Redox reaction and the solidification.
The PLA Evo process if fully compatible with Pandrol Connect, our smart welding traceability App.
PLA Evo is suitable for use on a 25mm welding gap
(25 +/-2 mm).
