PowerRail Announces New Product Offering

PowerRail, Inc., an AAR M-1003 certified company, has announced that in a strategic partnership with German company, SORB, PowerRail will now be the sole distributor for the United States, providing the highly efficient absorbent, PowerSORB™.

PowerSORB™ is a 100% organic absorbent which can be used on roads, water and any other surface. This highly efficient material, made with European Patented Technology, provides 100% absorption of Lubricants, Oils, Paints, Dyes, Fluids, and Coolants. Within seconds PowerSORB™ is able to absorb up to four times its own weight.

After seeing the product in action at InnoTrans in Berlin, Germany in 2018, PowerRail Executives met with SORB about the possible partnership.

Butch Gaudet, VP of Engineering and Quality for PowerRail stated:

“We were all so impressed with this product. Throughout my career, I have worked 19 years in the power generation, marine and rail industries, and have never seen a product like this that absorbs almost no water and can give you a proved grip of 97%. The uses for PowerSORB™, in the field and in the shop, are endless.”

PowerRail Pres and CEO, Paul Foster, added:

“The entire PowerRail team is proud to be the sole distributor of PowerSORB™ to the US, and we are excited to offer this new product to our customers.”

VRF technology works like the accelerator in a car, by matching the Out-Put to the Load. The compressor starts up smoothly and ramps up until it meets the demand. When the Thermostat is satisfied, it ramps down to match the lower demand. PowerRail's design offers a unique Modular Design for easy operations during the maintenance or replacement of a component. Each component is lightweight, offering easier installation and lower labor cost to the installer. PowerRail's compact modular design can be easily mounted anywhere on the locomotive.
