Rail Gauge Rod

Rail gauge rod are designed for installation at weak point in truck ,areas with poor ballast,etc.The road hold trucks to gage by prevening spreading of rails.Rail gauge rod is also called gauge tie rod or gauge tie bar.They will reduce the need to respike the track an will prevent tilting of rails.AGICO is a professional rail gauge rod  manufacture, we can supply standard gauge rods for 56-½" track and rails of 60-140 lbs, for both non-insulated and insulated type, with approved certificate of ISO9001:2008 and CRCC authorization.

The Important Function of the Rail Gauge Rods

The main cause of derailments in industrial rail yards is over-wide track gauge.There are some railways that with track circuit, then it should use the insulated rail gauge rod which adopts high insulation resistance material to separate the circuit between two rails apart. Rail gauge may deviated if gauge tie rod is serious lacked, it may cause derailment or even overturned when the train passing by.
Rail wheels can exert as much as 4000 lbs. of side pressure against the rails. If the ties are spongy, they can lose their spike-holding strength and allow the rails to be pushed over from wheel side pressure. As an important accessory for railroad tracks, rail gauge tie rod helps to improve the rails’ lateral stability and also the ability to keep rail distance.A between-the-rails derailment requires crane-lifting to put the rail or engine back on the rails as well as extensive track repair.Made of two clamping devices at either end to fix railway tracks and a connected rod in the middle, a rail gauge rod fastens two parallel railways with certain gauge railway and prevents the rail from sliding.For some weaker sections of rails, like in sharp curves, turnouts, bad ties and temporary track, rail gauge rods are quite necessary, they help to prevent the rail track from unbalanced longitudinal tension and keep regular rail gauges.
