3.3.4 Wheel/rail interface (including wheel flange lubrication and sanding)

NNRA does not have lubrication equipment mounted on the track (there are some exceptions). It is assumed that the rolling stock lubricates the points of contact between the rail edge and the wheel flange in curves. The equipment shall produce a controlled and smooth lubrication film. Recommended guidelines for the lubrication equipment of rolling stock are given in appendix 3c.

Unless otherwise agreed with NNRA, each train shall lubricate sufficiently to compensate for its own wear of the lubrication film. Necessary amount of lubrication as specified in the Tabell 2 shall be applied as indicated in Figur 1.

Tabell 2: Necessary amount of lubrication
Axles total in train / lubricated axles Type of train cm3 per km
12/1 Multiple units –suburban traffic 0,150
16/1 Multiple units - long distance traffic 0,300
31/1 Passenger trains with locomotive 0,400
70/1 Freight trains with locomotive 0,600
Figur 1: Illustration of where lubrication of flange shall be applied

Tabell 2 and Figur 1 are extracts from the report ”Skinnesmøring og flenssmøring på det statlige jernbanenett” (Lubrication of rail and wheel flange). The report was prepared in cooperation with the Norwegian railway undertakings in 2004.

Specified amount of lubrication is derived from previous experience, but with correction in order to assure that every train lubricates sufficiently to compensate for iits own wear of the film of lubrication on the rail.
