For tight curves of <80m radius, nothing beats Multi-Life grooved rail ML330 for wear resistance with weld restorability in track.
Its first life is three times that of standard rail and equal to hard-faced rail. It is also guaranteed to be fully weld-restorable for multiple lives using British Steel’s patented process.
Extending the first use phase
Our ML330 offers the best wear resistance and restorability of any grooved rail on the market. With a hardness of 320–360HB, ML330 provides considerable benefits to tramway networks by postponing rail renewal and further reducing life cycle costs.
Our ML330 grooved rail is unique and much longer lasting than other available grades due to:
Features of ML330’s wear performance include:
Restoring grooved rail
We have developed a patented weld repair process. Our low pre-heat weld restoration process is now being successfully employed to restore grooved rail in tramway networks throughout Europe. Our process is ideal for rebuilding worn grooved rail in track to:
A welding technique requiring low pre-heating offers significant advantages:
Restoration of our ML330 grooved rail using this process has been evaluated by the University of Cambridge. The results validate the principles of the welding process and the integrity of the welds done on ML330.
We offer advice and consultancy to tramway networks on a wide range of rail welding issues. By sharing our expertise, we can help customers reduce the life cycle costs of renewal and maintenance.
