Enerpac launches cordless rail stressing equipment

Enerpac has released its RP-70A hydraulic rail stressor and ZC3-Series battery powered stressing pump which provides a cordless, light-weight, zero emission, rail stressor equipment for rail monitor thermite welding.
Traditional totally assembled rail pullers are too heavy for operators to comfortably transport and deploy safely and rapidly. The Enerpac RP70A stressor makes use of modular components that could be assembled and installed on web site without the necessity for tools, making preparation for rail stressing easier and safer. Assembly typically takes less than two minutes.
The Enerpac rail stressing package is designed for railway upkeep crews who assemble and install the rail puller instantly on web site when adjusting the hole between rail ends for rail stressing, rail welding, repairing rail failures and servicing insulators. The durable, simple assembly parts, including Enerpac ZC3-Series pump and hose set, are up to three times lighter than similar instruments. The complete equipment could be transported in an optional specially designed steel transport body.
Kickstart has a 70-tonne pulling and 35-tonne pushing capability while holding the rail in neutral length through the thermite welding process.
