RM Rail, a leading manufacturer of freight rolling stock in Russia, has certified rail tank car model 15-1286 for transportation of chemical cargoes to compliance with the Custom Union Technical Regulation requirements.

RM Rail has expanded its model range with a new rail car, which has passed a procedure of launching into manufacture and certification by the Register of Certification on the Federal Railway Transport.

The tank car has 88.1 cubic meter volume and 73 tons load capacity, which is the maximum value for this type of rolling stock. Based on the positive results of life tests and relevant surveys, which were carried out with the involvement of NVC Vagon, the assigned lifetime of the tank car, versus its counterparts, was increased from 24 to 32 years.

The tank car barrel is equipped with a steam heating jacket. The drain device has three layers of protection, and the safety valve is equipped with a membrane assembly. Axle load of the car is 25 tf.

Sergey Drobzhev, RM Rail Technical Development Director:

- For transportation of benzene and other chemical cargoes, we traditionally offer a choice. Buyers can either choose 15-1210-03 model on 23.5 tf axle load bogie or, if the tasks require it, opt for a new tank car model. This is an optimal offer in the specialized rolling stock market, which ensures reliability, safety and the utmost long-term operation on the railway network.
