The ETS2-77 is intended for the mechanized inspection of rails and switches as well as confirmation of the results of a grinding application. The device is capable of testing a wide range of rail profiles. The eddy current technology enables localizing the following surface defects:
- progressive transverse cracking (International Defect Code (UIC) 211)
- fissuring / scaling at the gauge corner (International Defect Code (UIC) 2223)
- shelling of the gauge corner (International Defect Code (UIC) 2222)
- wheel burn (International Defect Code (UIC) 225)
The eddy current rail inspection equipment ETS2-77 is capable of evaluating the vertical depth of the defect, thus allowing a more efficient management of rail defects. The inspector can easily decide on the defect removal method: grinding, milling or re-railing, which saves time and money.
