Besides delivering all the performance you need at the rail-wheel interface, the advanced EcoCurve Range delivers environmentally too.
Using a specially formulated grease thickener for enhanced stability in all climates and conditions, its highly adhesive nature gives lasting protection against wear and corrosion. Even under extreme pressure and heavy workloads, EcoCurve remains on the gauge corner, reducing run-off into the subsoil and the water table.
RS Clare’s EcoCurve range incorporates breakthrough nanotechnology at the molecular level to increase stability, consistency and performance whilst minimising the need for harmful chemical additives.
TRACKSIDE CURVED RAIL GREASE
EcoCurve Trackside is an Ecolabel certified, environmentally friendly, high performance curved rail lubricant appropriate for use in all types of trackside lubricators. Designed to protect the gauge corner, EcoCurve Trackside is also suitable for lubricating switchplates and check rails.
EcoCurve Heavy Haul is a premium gauge face lubricant for application via trackside lubricators. Specially formulated to provide enhanced lubrication and protection for curved rails over long distances where heavy loads and high volumes of traffic require an extreme performance, all-seasons curved rail grease.
EcoCurve High Mobility is an Ecolabel certified, unique curved rail grease designed specifically to provide increased pumpability in trackside applications where there are greater distances between lubricators and grease dispensing units (GDU) than typically encountered, eg. narrow tunnels or bridges.
SAFE TO HANDLE
Formulated to meet the highest eco-credentials, our EcoCurve range of curved rail lubricants feature non-hazardous materials, ensuring the lowest risk for operators when handling our products.
ONBOARD CURVED RAIL GREASE
EcoCurve Onboard is an Ecolabel certified high performance, innovative gauge face lubrication solution designed for application via on-board wheel flange lubricators / ‘spray equipment’. Formulated to meet the unique challenges of onboard application and ensure optimal protection at the wheel/rail interface.
An optimised and high performance trainborne curved rail lubrication solution for metro and commuter rail networks. EcoCurve Onboard 00 M gauge face lubricant is an NLGI 00 rail lubricant that includes solid additives for an additional layer of wear protection and extreme pressure performance.
Certified Eco Performance
To demonstrate our commitment to the environment, we meet the exacting demands of some of the world’s most stringent eco-certifications. In the United States, this means complying with the Environmentally Safe Lubricants Scheme, part of the Environmental Protection Agency’s legislation. In Europe, we’re the proud bearers of the European Ecolabel badge. Each recognises in different ways the biodegradable and non-bio accumulative elements in our lubricants which reduce impact on the aquatic environment and soil during use.
As environmental protection becomes an expected every day function of the rail industry, choosing the right rail lubricant is key to achieving optimum performance. With 75 – 90% renewable content, the Ecolabel certified products in our EcoCurve range go a long way towards reducing your carbon footprint, whilst boosting sustainability.
To maximise performance and value, every product is formulated to deliver a range of unique and crucial benefits:
The inherent environmental properties of our new EcoCurve range allows the greases to meet the USA Environment Protection Agency – Environmentally Acceptable Lubricant and the EU Ecolabel requirement, which are increasingly demanded qualifications for environmentally conscious regions.
