YardGlide ® ensures a smoother operating railroad yard. Usually installed after each group retarder in a hump yard or after the master retarder in a flat yard, YardGlide ensures proper co-efficient of friction for each car.

YardGlide senses the passing of cars over durable sensors in a yard and automatically dispenses the precise quantity of friction modifier to the top of the rail to ensure consistent car rollability.

YardGlide is an intelligent top of rail friction management system that offers:
  • Predictable rolling resistance for yard control systems
  • Compatibility with yard control interface systems
  • Field proven performance to reduce high lateral/vertical forces in hump yards
  • Powerful results with little to no mess
  • Minimized car speed loss
  • Reduced stalls and trim
  • Fewer load shift adjusts
  • Fewer rollouts

No other product offers greater precision in your railyard than YardGlide.

Loram Technologies offers three different sized YardGlide application systems that provide options to select whether a smaller footprint, a large capacity tank, or a combination of those two is the most important feature.

  • 54-Gallon (204L) Capacity - Not considered bulk lubricant storage
  • 100-Gallon (379L) Capacity - Reduced right of way footprint
  • 200-Gallon (757L) Capacity - Large capacity requires less frequent refilling
