Condition Monitoring

Vortok VERSE

Vortok VERSE is a reliable and low cost method of checking the rail is at the correct stress free temperature/neutral temperature.

The internationally accredited VERSE monitoring system significantly reduces the risk of buckling and fracturing, achieving new track quality acceptance and allowing operators to plan cost-effective re-stressing programmes.

Technical Features

  • Suitable for all rail profiles
  • Instant results can be picked up on the handheld computer
  • Small and lightweight handheld device with 20 hour battery life
  • Exportable readings: files downloadable into databases like Excel and Access for integration with other track data

  • Cost-effective re-stressing programmes allows operators to predict where track is vulnerable to stress free temperature change and plan cost-effective programmes
  • Eliminates the need to cut the rail to measure rail stress
  • Calculates the Stress Free Temperature without requiring knowledge of any residual stress history of the rail
  • Quick and easy measurement taking 20 to 30 minutes per measurement (depending on rail fastening)
