Parts Washers for Rail – Improve safety as part of your maintenance plan

We see our role as underpinning the maintenance of a consistently reliable, national rail transportation network.

We understand your priorities and processes and we listen to your specific requirements before recommending the best service contract and products for you.

Discussing Priorities

We know you want a supplier that will assist in the development of a cost effective and robust maintenance programme to extend rolling stock life and provide a comprehensive waste management solution to enhance your carbon credentials.

We appreciate safety is an overriding consideration in the transport industry as a whole. People’s lives depend on the smallest of components performing to the highest possible level.

Helping with Processes

Just a few examples of where we can help:

  • Spray gun cleaning – painting assets such as carriages protects them from the elements and reflects the brand. Getting paint quality right first time is imperative to saving time and money, but also performance and how attractive assets look overall.

  • Castings and bogies, brakes, bolts and more, our machines efficiently and sustainably remove all types of contaminants, so you can improve safety, run an effective MRO programme and reduce downtime.

  • De-rusting technology and parts washers assist with non-destructive testing, for fault identification.

  • Train Operating Companies (TOC) need an Environmental Management System (EMS) to win contracts, our process and solutions are part of that.

We work across all the following sectors and beyond. Call us now on  01285 762941 to speak to one of our experts.

Understanding What You Want from a Supplier

Is this how you see it?

“Unplanned maintenance has a detrimental effect on the efficiency of a tightly run operation. Time spent on MRO is high, so it needs to be as efficient as possible. You need a supplier that offers machinery which requires minimal service visit and an ‘on-the-spot’ repair service.”

“Depending on the level of visibility of components there is a requirement to demonstrate cleanliness – not only is this associated with safety but also the importance an organisation places on its publics. We place the same importance on cleaning materials as you do.”

Our experienced sales advisors understand the pressures you are under and work in partnership with you, so that we can offer you the best possible service.
