Sincere interest in the manual ‘ERS on Bridges’ during IAF Münster

edilon)(sedra looks back on an exciting IAF exhibition in Münster, Germany. Rail experts from all over the world were very interested in examining our company’s latest rail track innovations.

Special point of interest was the launch of our ‘Complete Manual Embedded Rail Systems on Bridges’.

This 40 page handbook builds the conduit between the diversity of challenges faced when designing railway bridges and the solutions that ERS Embedded Rail System provides in practice. The manual discusses different types of bridges and bridge covers, based on the compatibility of ERS, as well as solutions for transition zones, integration of compensation welds or devices, as well as glue seals, signal and detection currents and draining. Aspects such as technical implementation, operation, finances and lifespan are also discussed in detail.

Because of the frequent interest shown in this manual, we’ve decided to offer it as free PDF download option on our website:
www.edilonsedra.com/manual (English version)
www.edilonsedra.com/handbuch (German version)


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We are looking forward to your positive feedback and we hope to see you again during the next edition of IAF!

edilon)(sedra at IAF Münster: engineering the future!

We are looking forward to meet you at stand S/500 Hall South of the IAF exhibition, which will take place from the 30th of May until the 1st of June in Münster, Germany. We would be delighted to give you a warm welcome and inform you about our latest developments in rail track technology and projects in Germany and indeed all around the world. Our IAF stand is centred around a number of themes. We would like to take this opportunity to explain the themes.

ERS – Launch of ‘Complete Manual Embedded Rail Systems on Bridges’
We are excited to present you our new ‘Complete Manual Embedded Rail Systems on Bridges’. This 40 page handbook attempts to build a conduit between the diversity of challenges faced when designing railway bridges and the solutions that ERS Embedded Rail System provides in practice.

For more information about the handbook, which will be available in German, English and Dutch, please contact us or visit our stand S/500!

SDS – In street tracks designed for optimal durability
Railway transportation is an indispensable part of modern society, which has to meet environmental regulations for noise and vibrations. edilon)(sedra SDS (Sound Damping System) fits perfectly into these requirements. edilon)(sedra as inventors of filler block systems, developed this cost effective track form for tramway applications.

In order to increase the isolation property of the filler block systems and rail encapsulation systems, the effective joint sealant material edilon)(sedra Jointelast STP can be combined. Jointelast STP is a highly elastic polymer-based sealant that is ideal for sealing joints in the areas of road and track construction as it adheres to steel, asphalt and concrete and it can absorb dynamic and static loads. For more information about edilon)(sedra SDS, or edilon)(sedra Jointelast STP and its diverse applications like the 7.5 km Luas Cross City tram line in Dublin, Ireland and the 80 km Education City people mover in Doha, Qatar please visit our stand S/500!

EBS – Future-proof ballastless rail system for metro Bucharest
edilon)(sedra Corkelast® EBS-MS (Embedded Block System) was chosen by Metrorex (the Bucharest Metro Authority) for their new Metro Line 5 as it provides a watertight system with optimal electrical isolation and requires virtually no maintenance. The complete system design, switch bearers and guiderail blocks were performed by edilon)(sedra Application Engineering in close co-operation with the client. A thorough study on noise and vibration effects with Slab Track Mats has been performed by the German consultant company I.B.U. in Essen, specialized in the field of noise and vibration effects.

Curious about the impact? Please visit our stand S/500! We would be delighted to inform you about our Corkelast® EBS system and the Metrorex project.

SIFER 2017: Firm foothold for Corkelast® ERS in France

The exhibition SIFER 2017 offered a perfect opportunity to strengthen business contacts and to celebrate our firm foothold of the Corkelast® ERS rail fastening solution in the French market. This conclusion was drawn at the end of the exhibition, which took place from 21 to 23 March in Lille, France.                                 

One of the highlights was the official approval of SNCF for the edilon)(sedra Corkelast® ERS (Embedded Rail System) for heavy rail and high speed traffic classes which was confirmed just before the exhibition.  In presence of SNCF delegates this important achievement was celebrated on Wednesday the 22nd with a glass of champagne at the exhibition stand.


                                                                                
Moreover, the exhibition provided opportunities to strengthen existing business contacts in France and Magreb but also generated many new contacts, attracted by the opportunities the SNCF homologation offers and the Application Engineering service that comes with it.

We are looking forward to the next edition of SIFER.

MiddleEastRail exhibition: Embedded Block System identified as compliant system for heavy seasonal rainfall

edilon)(sedra participated in the 2016 MiddleEastRail exhibition for the third year running. We were happy to recognise that the exhibition has developed in to a truly international event.

The exhibition ran for two full days, most of the time the stand was very busy.  There were clients, technical advisors, principles and decision makers, all who were keenly interested in our embedded rail technology, especially the edilon)(sedra Corkelast® Embedded Block System (EBS).

EBS was identified as a compliant system to track works that were exposed to the heavy seasonal rainfall.  It was identified that rainfall in the Middle East region, though very infrequent, often exceeds more than 250mm in a day.  When this happens and the track form is not suitably designed to accommodate the rainfall, then the track becomes unusable.

Enquires for the edilon)(sedra track systems came from Saudi Arabia, Iran, Qatar and the UAE.  edilon)(sedra participation in the 2016 Middle East Rail exhibition was a success, and we look forward to meeting our old friends as well as our new ones during this promising 2016.
