For more than 25 years Dürr Technik has been manufacturing oil-free auxiliary compressors for railway vehicles and is now one of the leading manufacturers in this sector. Oil-free compressors are used – amongst other applications – for lifting of the current collector bracket (panthograph), wheel flange lubrication, and sanding.
Dürr Technik is now extending their portfolio for railway vehicles with the products of the French company ATS Environment. They, for example, developed amongst other products, the first oil-free main air compressors for highspeed trains. When taking over the assets from ATS, Dürr Technik offers additional innovative compressed air solutions. Besides of auxiliary air compressors Dürr Technik is now also supplying robust oil-free main air compressors in two product ranges. Since 2006 the range RC, which has been certified by SNCF is very suitable for retrofit owing to its modularity. The range MC is characterized by its compact size and it is an ideal solution for new projects.
