African Company Relies on DUREL Polymer Springs


Thanks to the unsurpassed characteristics of its high-performance polymer springs DUREL is participating in a major contract awarded by an African company to equip the rolling stock for the rail shipment of the heavy iron ore to the harbour.

Years of trouble-free product testing under harsh conditions were the decisive factor for the customer's decision. DUREL developed a product with outstanding characteristics that is going to replace rubber-based spring elements that are prone to wear or repair.

The distinguishing features of the newly developed Heavy Duty Draft Gear (HDDG) are:

  • Optimized guiding in AAR M-201 pockets
  • Excellent heat dissipation
  • No embrittlement even under extreme climatic conditions
  • No steel friction parts, no stick-slip effect, no wear
  • Constant force progression over the entire stroke without force peaks
  • Maintenance-free
