ERGA PSM-VO magnetic bracket
Magnetic bracket ERGA PSM-VO for safe unloading of railway cars on rotary railcar dumpers (wagon tipplers)
Magnetic brackets ERGA PSM-VO are installed on railcar dumpers (wagon tipplers) during unloading bulk cargo (coal, ore, etc.) and are used in coal-tar and metallurgical plants, thermal power plants, construction industry, heavy machine building, transshipment points (sea and river ports).
- High-efficiency NdFeB magnetic system
During dumping of the railcar, the cotter pin fixing the brake shoe can fall out of the bore hole, which can lead to inoperability of the brake system. The powerful magnetic field of ERGA PSM-VO brackets holds the pin in the block on the railway platform of the carriage during material unloading. Operation of the bracket is based on the principle of magnetic fields, generated by permanent magnets in ferromagnetic parts of the brake shoe and the cotter pin.
- Unique solution for safety of works
ERGA specialists have created a unique solution for continuous unloading of railcars that has no analogs. In the process of platform maneuvers the brake shoe enters PSM-VO magnetic field, and the platform itself is fixed against displacement for further operations. The cotter pin is magnetized to the brake shoe elements. While the platform is dumped and cargo is unloaded from the railcar, the magnetic fields hold the pin, preventing it from falling out of the hole, which reduces further costs for their purchase and increases safety of rolling stock and rail traffic.
- Easy to install and operate
The height of magnetic block of ERGA PSM-VO magnetic brackets can be adjusted with bolts. Installed easily using bolted connection, the cotter pin is held automatically without operator.
- Efficiency x14 times higher!
Field trials of ERGA PSM-VO magnetic brackets at the coal terminal have proven their high efficiency. Thus, during the operation, there were 14 times less cotter pins fallen out of cars with magnets than in cars without them, which significantly increased overall efficiency of railcar dumpers.
