Hoses for Pneumatic Train Brakes

Working closely with companies in the Rail Sector Argus Salisbury has developed a range of hoses that conform to EN45545 hazard level 3 for applications where low smoke and toxicity levels are required. Designed initially for pneumatic brake applications, RAILSAFE can also be utilised for cooling systems, Pantograph Systems and any other low pressure fluid or gas application.

A range of fittings are available in different materials from mild steel to stainless steel depending on your application, end fittings can also be electro plated in a variety of specifications. For ease of assembly and to reduce assembly times Argus has a range of low pressure threadless connectors available, the system is a simple push to fit arrangement negating the need for bulky and awkward hand tools.

Threadless Connectors for Locomotives

It has the added benefit of allowing the parts to swivel when connected whilst remaining leak free, the quick connect system also eases disassembly for routing maintenance or overhaul. Argus Salisbury is also able to offer tube manipulation as part of a packaged supply incorporating the threadless connectors and Railsafe hose including kitting of components if required. As well as special products for the Rail Sector Argus is also able to supply a standard range of hose and fittings for hydraulic and pneumatic applications.
