Single-line lubrication systems for railway vehicles

SKF EasyRail Compact operates through homogenous lubricant metering. The dosage is already defined at the pump unit. Compressed air is used as transport medium. The lubricant moves along the pipe system via a flow divider towards the spraying nozzles from where the lubricant is evenly distributed on the wheel flange.

Thus only one line, carrying the lubricant and compressed air at the same time, is installed. The air / lubricant mix is split up into equal parts inside the flow divider when the flow conditions prevailing in the outlet branches similar.

The intelligent control unit is managing effectively the lubrication needs of the operator and reduces the lubricant consumption to a minimum.


SKF EasyRail Compact systems can be used universally on all vehicle segments from urban transport to regional and intercity trains as well as locomotives. The ease of installation also allows quick retrofitting on existing rail vehicles.
