Testing Gadget to restrict CR Overcharging

The proper functioning of DV is tested with the help of Single Car Test Rig in open line. Presently no instrument/test rig is available for checking of CR over charging. Taking an innovative step C&W depot Gwalior has manufactured a test bench for checking the overcharging of CR. With the help of this device (without removing the DV), CR overcharging can be checked through SCTR. With the use of this device in sick line, the problem of overcharging of CR will be controlled; resulting in restricting the cases of brake binding enroute.

Checking Procedure

1.First connect the FP & BP hose pipe with SCTR

2.Charge 05 Kg/cm2 pressure through SCTR in BP. After charging, apply brakes by dropping the pressure of 1.6 Kg/cm2.

3.Close the BP cock of gadget and open the FP cock.

4.In this procedure FP Pressure (06 Kg/cm2) will be maintained in FP through gadget and brakes will be released.

5.After brake releasing, CR pressure should not be dropped less than 0.1 Kg/cm2for 10 seconds in ICF coaches and 25 seconds for LHB, which means CR is not overcharged.

3.

Gadget for welding SF Liner

During ROH, numerous side frame liners are found excessive worn out, same are required to replace with new one. At the time of welding of manganese liner in trolleys it get shifted from their locations and improper welding takes place because of displacement of liners. To avoid this problem, Jhansi Wagon Depot has developed a gadget for proper fitment of liners before welding. With the help of this gadget both side liners are tightened in position to maintain the permissible gap and then welding is done all round the liner at proper location.
