RAILKO Centre Pivot Liners (CPLs) are used to maintain friction within the centre bolster of the freight bogie.
Tenmat’s proprietary RAILKO NF21 is the only material specified in all types of freight wagons including coal hopper wagons, oil tankers, salt / silt / aggregate wagons, heavy duty wagons and tankers for hazardous chemicals. Tenmat’s RAILKO CPL are recognised as the high-performing, long-lasting replacement for steel and plastic wear parts. Wagon owners specifically require RAILKO NF due to the added wear protection and extended maintenance cycles, while operators value the safety aspect of extremely durable NF material to avoid disastrous accidents.
- Longer Service life – lower wear rate than other plastic based CPLs ensures less damage to a safety critical
- Approvals – Various approvals mean parts can be applied to wagons regardless of the borders that they pass through
- Dimensional stability (Zero creep) – Stable and reliable material ensuring no requirement for later adjustments or replacements
- Corrosion and Maintenance Free – No requirement for greasing as the material is self lubricating, meaning maintenance is only required when the CPL is ready to be replaced
