Rail Clamp

The Pandrol Rail Clamp is an innovative temporary rail joint clamp used prior to welding and to safeguard rail defects prior to repair.

The Rail Clamp has been engineered to eliminate many of the disadvantages of other traditional rail clamp designs and provides enhanced performance under all conditions of use. The Pandrol Rail Clamp design is radically different to the legacy design and guarantees a positive pre-torque angle so as the bolt is tightened the bolt holes remain aligned,  eliminating the risk of bent bolts.  Pandrol tests have proved that bolts remain straight even at twice the recommended torque.

Technical Features

  • Increased clamping force reduces rail creep due to temperature change.
  • Improved vertical deflection allows higher line speeds over the joint.
  • The self-supporting profile of the clamp aids the installation process.
  • The horizontal clamping action elimintaes the possibility of bending the clamping bolts.
  • Hardlock anti-loosening nut system available

Advantages

  • Improved safety.
  • Reduced whole life cost.
  • Compatible with many different rail profiles.
  • Bolts can be reused unlike current designs.
  • Reduced installation time.
  • Potential for higher line speeds and lower time delay penalties.
  • Reduced rail stress through wider contact points.
