Train Earthing Units
Axle Earth Return Units and Earth Return Brushes
Current flowing through axle bearings damages the bearings and reduces their service lifetime.
Morgan Advanced Materials develops and produces earth return units to direct the path of the current away from the bearings through the wheels or axles, thus protecting the bearings.
Our systems axle and end return brushes and holders are approved for service with major rail companies such as SNCF, OBB, and LUL.
These engineered units deliver value by providing a low-maintenance, long-life solution.
Major benefits of Morgan designs:
- Protection from harsh environments with insulated, coated castings
- Stable low-vibration operation preventing breaks in the contact system and lower brush wear
- Can be OEM or retro - fitted.
