Switch Point Rollers

Switch-Point-Roller-1

  * REDUCES/ ELIMINATES SWITCH PLATE LUBRICATION REQUIREMENTS
  * REDUCES SWITCH MACHINE FAILURES
  * REDUCES POWER REQUIREMENTS
  * IMPROVES SWITCH POINT CLOSURE

Due to the development of longer high-speed switches and the continued use of heavy rail sections, G&B Specialties offers a variety of switch point rollers to significantly reduce the effort required in switch point movement.  By lifting the point off the gage plates as the switch is thrown, these rollers reduce the friction between the switch point and gage plates, consequently, reducing the force needed to throw the switch.  Both “top of tie” and “in the crib” designs are available.  These devices are easily installed on 115lb RE and heavier rail on existing or new switches and are especially advantageous when used on manual operated switches, spring switches and power operates switches.
