MFD Lifting Jack

The light-metal re-railing system from Hegenscheidt-MFD.

The system has been specifically designed to be modular and depending on how the component parts are assembled, any rail vehicle:- Tram, Underground, Railway Carriage, Locomotive, Traction Unit or Smelting Plant Vehicle can be up righted and rerailed.

A typical kit is made up of: Drive Pump, Control Unit, Hose Sets, Jacks, Bridges, Roller Carriages, Displacing Jack, Counter Supports & Distance Bar

400 Series Jack

MFD jacks are made from high strength metal alloy, making them light enough to move and position but strong to be very durable and give many years of service. Each jack is fitted with pressure protection to prevent he load being dropped in the event of a hose failure.

The range is available with various closed heights and stokes, including two stage telescopic rams and low height jacks which can deal with extremely low lifting points.

Hydraulic Drive Pumps
& MFD Control Desks

Re-railing Bridges

Hydraulic Drive Pumps

The pump is the heart of every re-railing set up, providing the pressure to drive the connected jacks. There are three models of powered "stand alone” pumps available, two with petrol engines and one fitted with a diesel drive unit. Available with either 60 or 20 litre useable hydraulic oil tanks.

Special dive pumps are also available with control units fitted.

Control Unit

These control the movement of all the jacks in the re-railing process and are fitted with either 4 or 6 drive circuits enabling up to 6 jacks to be controlled. However this number can be increased by using distribution manifolds. The Control Unit is connected to the drive pump with a pair of hoses which are colour coded for easy identification.

Re-railing Bridges

Used in conjunction with Roller Carriages and a Displacing Jack to allow the lifted derailed vehicle to be pushed or pulled back in to position and placed back on to the running rails. The bridges are made from hollow extruded sections of high strength metal alloy and are fitted with four retractable lifting handles. Each unit has locating points along the upper side to attach the Counter Support, this allows the Displacing Jack to be fitted in various places along the bridge. Two bridges can be fitted together using a special coupling.
