Loram Technologies' TracGlide is a patented, intelligent onboard top of friction management system that can be mounted to locomotives, cars and specialty maintenance equipment like rail grinders.

Loram Technologies' TracGlide onboad top of rail applicator provides:

  • Enhanced wheel and rail interaction
  • Reduced fuel and energy usage
  • Reduced lateral/vertical forces
  • Lowered track maintenance

The TracGlide’s computer-controlled system calculates and applies a precise, thin layer of friction modifier to the top of rails. The TracGlide is programmed to know how many cars are in a train and automatically identifies the correct amount of friction modifier to apply. This precision enables the friction modifier to dissipate as the train passes with no buildup.
