Countdown to Derby 30th September 2021

RSN 2021 EXHIBITOR FLOTEC PARTNERS WITH EMR TO IMPROVE CLASS 158 FLEET RELIABILITY.

 

East Midlands Railway (EMR) approached Flotec to support the organisation in its vision to create easier journeys for its passengers.

EMR Class 158 fleet have historically suffered with engines overheating and reverting to idle.

A combination of steep inclines and contaminants entering the system can catastrophically slow the engine down.

 

Flotec designed an engineering solution consisting of upgrading and modifying the existing fan units to Flotec’s Variable Pitch Fan (VPF) innovation.
Flotec’s VPF is unique in its multi-directional rotation which is far more efficient in blocking contaminants and efficiently maintaining radiator cooling.
Flotec also completed a hydrostatic hose overhaul, reservoir cleaning, fan control upgrade and variable displacement pump modification.
In total, Flotec supported EMR in overhauling thirty-two of its train fleets.

 

 

“We approached Flotec to help improve our engine cooling efficiency and deliver improved reliability across the fleet.”
