EMCO Wheaton has worked with major operators in the rail sector for 40 years. Our systems are designed to speed up the locomotive refueling process while minimising the challenges associated with on-platform loading and unloading.
EMCO Wheaton’s products cover all loading and unloading processes in the rail market. This includes rail cars and locomotive refueling. Recognising the different needs of operators across the world, our solutions are tailored to each customer and never adopt a ‘one size fits all’ approach.
Perhaps the best example of this can be seen through our work with the Turkish Rail Authority, which needed a way to reduce the theft of fuel from its fleet. EMCO Wheaton’s engineers responded to the challenge with an innovative solution using a modified adaptor from sister company TODO.
The TODO-MATIC adaptor was mounted on the rail car and incorporated a switch that sensed a magnet mounted on both the coupler and the adaptor cap. This connection then generated an 'on/off' signal that alerted the locomotive driver if a coupler or cap was disconnected without authority or at the wrong time. The coupler, cap and adaptor were designed as such that when correctly joined the magnet and switch will align. The Turkish Rail Authority saw the value of this solution and ordered 1,500 2-inch units. This is just one example among many in the rail sector and typifies the tailored approach EMCO Wheaton takes to each job.
