Alom will demonstrate two thermite welding systems

During RailTech Europe, visitors can experience various rail techniques from close quarters on a special demonstration square on the grounds of the Jaarbeurs in Utrecht. Rail supplier Alom will demonstrate the operation of their thermite welding system every day. 

During RailTech Europe, rail supplier Alom will demonstrate two thermite welding systems from producer Pandrol. Thermite welding is a technique in which pieces of track are welded together without a join at temperatures of over 2500 degrees. This is done with a bucket containing thermite, which is a mix of iron and aluminium powder. An ignitor is placed in the bucket which triggers a chemical reaction, through which the rails become fused to one another. Thermite welding is used to weld all types and qualities of rails, including tram rails and crane rails.


The first system that Alom will demonstrate is in a steel bucket that can be fitted with a special filter lid. Director Mark van den Rijen from Alom: “The thermite is burned in the bucket, which creates a lot of smoke. Thanks to the filter, this smoke is kept in and absorbed, which makes the work safer. It’s better for the health of welders and their colleagues in the industry, and also offers advantages when working in tunnels, for example.” As the sand cast is positioned in the bucket in an innovative way, the post-welding residue is left loose in the bucket, which makes it easy to separate. Then the steel bucket can simply go onto the scrap iron.

The second thermite welding system that will be demonstrated is in a cardboard bucket. “The advantage of this system is that almost all the material, including the bucket, is burned. As a result you barely have any residual material to get rid of, which means that a lot of time can be saved. As the bucket is made of cardboard, the system is also cheaper than systems with an iron bucket.”


Protect your assets with CuTex

At the track we know the problems: Weeds that are so persistent that much is destroyed. In addition to fighting these weeds such as the Japanese Knot, it is now also possible to protect the track with a membrane cloth; CuTex. Alom represents Cu Tex at the Benelux.

Filtertuch verringert die negative Auswirkung von Lehmbildung au

Lehmbildung auf Gleisen kann den Zugverkehr beeinträchtigen. Da sich der Lehm bei schlechtem Wetter mit Regenwasser vermischt, kommt es zu einer schnelleren Verschmutzung des Gleisschotters.
