Rail Jacks Back in Use

On a recent project four rail car lifting jacks were in need of a new lease of life.

The units had been standing redundant for a while and certification and basic service was required to get the units back into action.

Engineers from our specific rail division staff were tasked with a basic back to service repair and test. The units were individually examined checking all load nuts and safety nuts, electrical controls and hydraulic transport devices, from here the units were linked into series and checked from the master panel.  All that was required was to fit a number of bulbs and re-gland a number of electrical cables. The units were then subject to a dynamic proof load test using calibrated test weights.

With all this work now complete the units were issued with the appropriate certification, loaded onto a vehicle for transportation and successfully commissioned at the new place of work.
