Compression Rail Anchors
2-Way Holding Power
Economical, uniform anchorage... protection against pull-apart... lower maintenance
-Fewer anchors per mile
One compression Rail Anchor holds in both directions so fewer anchors are required per mile. In addition, you benefit from the speed and cost efficiency of machine installation.
-Reduce anchor inventory
- Holds rail to outside shoulder
Compression Rail Anchors hold the rail to the outside shoulder of the tie plate. They resist rail movement on main line track, branch lines, turnouts, bridges, switches and crossings.
- Effective Anchoring
Compression Rail Anchors reduce buckling stresses and provide definitive protection against “pull-aparts” in welded rail. Uniform holding maintains gaps at the end of the rail. Rails are effectively anchored, both ways, from the movement of application.
With the combination of train and highway traffic, grade crossings are subject to millions of cycles of vertical motions, thus accelerating spike pull, tie wear and unstable sub grade, as shown in Fig. 1.
The Torque Timber Screw with the Compression Fastener, which acts as a spring, shown in Fig.2, will absorb more vertical movement of the rail without transmitting these forces to the Torque Timber Screw or the tie.
