The ZWEIWEG grooved rail cleaner ensure a fast and efficient cleaning of grooved rails. Brake sand, dirt and debris are loosened by a powerful high-pressure water jet system and a mechanical scraper chisel and afterwards vacuumed off. The special rail guiding systems ensure, even in narrow curves and turnouts, a particularly precise guiding of the cleaning device in grooved rails. Additionally, these vehicles can have a rail head cleaning system and track lubrication devices.
Through a high-quality and innovative cleaning technology, these vehicles achieve optimal suction and cleaning results on ballasted and slab tracks. Impurities in the track bed such as civilization waste, brake abrasion and sand are reliably removed.
In the ballast track, it is done without loosening or sucking up the ballast that is important for damping. A loosening of the impurities can be made before cleaning by means of air vortex, high pressure water or mechanical processes.
ZWEIWEG track maintenance vehicles are available with a wide variety of superstructures, also in Twistlock interchangeable design. This means that they can be used for all kinds of care and works around the track.
