RAIL INSPECTION

Hi people! I work at Metro de Santiago and I need info about devices for inspecting rails. And systems for marking iron pieces for traceability. I checked meccomark.com but they do not answer the emails...maybe webmaster problems.

Thanks for your time!
Jorge

I suggest you contact Sperry Rail (in CT) or Herzog (in MO) as two places to find more information about rail inspection equipment and/or services. Unless I'm mistaken, Sperry inspects the New York subway system, which could have immediate relevance to your concerns.

Re: RAIL INSPECTION
Hi Gorge
If you would like to contact me, I would be happy to discuss NDE methods for rail testing. I have designed some of the ultrasonic rail test systems that are used throughout Australia and the USA. Ultrasonic NDE is the most common approach, but it really depends on the types of defect you're looking for (head, web, foot, surface, internal), if your doing spot checks (welds, bolt holes, etc.) or continuous, automated inspection along the track, or if you're testing individual lengths of new or used rail.
Cheers
Steve
