Welding and Track Maintenance Equipment

Track Welding Tent

Aluminothermic welding on track can often be complicated in harsh weather conditions such as rain and wind. The RW25 Track Welding Tent provides essential protection to help ensure that high-quality welds can still be achieved.

Made from PCV, the tent is water resistant, flame retardant, translucent, and wind resistant for speeds up to 70 km/h. The lightweight design and minimal components allow a single welder to easily carry it onto track and set up. Assembly uses two poles mounted beneath the rail to securely fasten the tent.

To ensure a high-quality weld, all welding consumables should be kept dry and rails should be dried prior to welding.

Technical Features

  • Made using robust components and frames to meet the most demanding of track conditions
  • Withstand winds up to 70 km/h or 43.5 mph – tested rigorously in wind tunnels
  • Made from PVC material and is water resistant, flame retardant, and translucent
  • Electrical insulation allows for the use of live overhead electrification
  • Has a rear smoke outlet for fume extraction
  • Comes in an easy-to-repack bag

Advantages

  • Significantly reduces track downtime by enabling welding operations to continue in inclement weather
  • Welding operations can continue in difficult weather conditions
  • Ensures high quality welds during wind, rain, and snow
  • One welder can quickly assemble and disassemble
  • The tent can be safely used under live overhead line equipment
