EcoCurve Heavy Haul is a premium, high performance gauge face lubricant suitable 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.
The RS Clare EcoCurve range of curved rail lubricants has been formulated with >70% renewable content to satisfy the world’s most demanding eco-credentials. It’s never been more important to select an environmentally friendly lubricant, ensuring minimum impact on the aquatic environment and soil in surrounding areas during use, with particular focus on the biodegradable and non-bio accumulative elements in the lubricants. EcoCurve Heavy Haul goes a long way towards reducing your carbon footprint whilst boosting sustainability.
Features and Benefits
The EcoCurve range incorporates breakthrough nanotechnology at the molecular level to increase stability, consistency and performance, whilst minimising the need for harmful chemical additives.
Claretech EcoCurve Heavy Haul
For use in trackside curved rail lubricators, wherever there is a requirement for extreme performance and environmentally sensitive products. Designed for high volume and high load rail systems.
Complex Viscosity Vs. Temperature for All Seasons Curved Rail Grease
EcoCurve Heavy Haul curved rail lubricant is a premium quality, high-performance grease specially formulated for the heavy rail traffic of Class 1 railroads and freight rail networks.
The Rheology profile below compares the complex viscosity against temperature for Claretech EcoCurve Heavy Haul (blue) and a more conventional rail grease (red). The flatter profile of the blue curve shows that the all-seasons EcoCurve Heavy Haul grease is much more stable across a wide temperature range, meaning it will pump more consistently, not cavitate in the reservoir and it will form more a consistent bead structure on the GDU (Grease Delivery Unit). You can see that the conventional rail grease (red) is more viscous at temperatures below 0°C but then quickly softens as the temperature reaches 20°C and beyond, meaning it could be difficult to pump in the winter and perhaps too soft to form good bead structures in the summer, resulting in inconsistent performance across the changing seasons.
EcoCurve Heavy Haul is both Ecolabel certified in Europe and fully compliant with the EPA’s Environmentally Safe Lubricants Scheme in the United States.
Delivering consistently high all-seasons performance, EcoCurve Heavy Haul is formulated to deliver premium protection for heavy axle loads and high traffic networks to reduce maintenance time, decrease downtime and prolong rail life, and deliver long-term savings to our customers.
