  Hollow Steel Sleepers




Hollow steel sleeper in track with hot-box detector




The hollow steel sleeper in the
turnout offers the opportunity
to install the hydraulic setting
system HYDROSTAR® and the
rods of conventional monitoring
systems in the protected hollow
sleeper In the track hot box
and hot wheel detectors can be
placed in hollow steel sleepers.

  Hollow Steel Sleepers




Hollow steel sleeper with mounted hydraulic aggregate




Advantages

u Sensitive parts of the setting system, the lock and the monitoring device as well as other elements can be placed
  safely in the hollow steel sleeper

u Components are protected against being damaged by ballast

u Continuous tamping is possible

u Optimized design by FE analysis

u In case of electrical heating good heat conduction because of the closed structure




Technical characteristics                                                                               Hollow steel sleeper optimised design by
                                                                                                        finite element analysis


Design of the hollow sleeper                      Bent and welded from steel sheets and
                                                  equipped with covers

Rail fastening                                    Suitable for all common rail fastenings
Plates                                            Electrically insulated bolting
Electrical heating                                Possible
Width                                             Similar to standard sleepers taking into
                                                  consideration that elements are placed in
                                                  the sleeper
Coupling                                          Coupling in pairs possible
