Railway Switch Point Heater Control Technology
Summary:
A Turkish company specialized in railway applications developed a railway switch point heater control technology providing reliable deicing and snow melting operations for the moving parts of railway switches and allows secure winter railway traffic even in severe weather conditions. The system enhances up to 60 % energy, cost and time saving. The company is looking for a commercial agreement with technical assistance.
Description:
A railroad switch, turnout or points is a mechanical installation enabling railway trains to be guided from one track to another, such as at a railway junction or where a spur or siding branches off.

The switch consists of the pair of linked tapering rails, known as points (switch rails or point blades), lying between the diverging outer rails (the stock rails). These points can be moved laterally into one of two positions to direct a train coming from the narrow end toward the straight path or the diverging path. A train moving from the narrow end toward the point blades (i.e. it will be directed to one of the two paths depending on the position of the points) is said to be executing a facing-point movement.

Unless the switch is locked, a train coming from either of the converging directs will pass through the points onto the narrow end, regardless of the position of the points, as the vehicle´s wheels will force the points to move. Passage through a switch in this direction is known as a trailing-point movement.

A switch generally has a straight -Y-quot;through-Y-quot; track (such as the main-line) and a diverging route. The handedness of the installation is described by the side that the diverging track leaves. Right-hand switches have a diverging path to the right of the straight track, when coming from the narrow end, and a left-handed switch has the diverging track leaving to the opposite side.

Snow and ice build-up between the stock and switch rails can cause malfunction of the signaling system and increase the risk of damage and derailment. Switch point heating systems help to eliminate service interruptions and equipment failure caused by compaction and compression of ice and snow in switches.

A Turkish company developed a complete, efficient and cost-saving switch point heating system that can secure reliable railway traffic through switch points in severe winter weather conditions.The company is looking for a commercial agreement with technical assistance.
Advantages and Innovations:
Company´s online supervision and monitoring software can provide a full overview of all stations, tracks and critical installations. Users can manage individual control settings down to each station, monitor local weather conditions from a distance and instruct individual switches to heat, as well as get instant alerts upon heating failure, saving important time and maintenance costs.
