Designed and engineered to protect the environment from contamination caused by spillage and leaks on the rail network.
The Unipart Rail TrackPan system is designed and engineered to protect the environment from contamination caused by spillage and leaks on the rail network.
Using TrackPan significantly reduces the risk of costly clean-up and regulatory fines.
he TrackPan collector system is modular and fits into the existing track without the need to lift or modify the track.
A single-track pan module is 10m in length. The core components comprise two 4.5 metre long sloping sections and a central 1m long collector section, moulded from durable GRP. Adjustable pads securely support the pan.
The TrackPan width fits within a range of larger track gauges typical in international heavy and light rail systems. The gap between the pan and inner face of the rail allows for the slight curvatures sometimes found in depot locations.
Waste fluids run down the two sloped panels towards the drain hole.
The central collector panel does not have pre-moulded drain holes, as the sleeper spacing below defines where holes need to be located.
The carefully designed cross section of the slope and collector panels provides drainage for fluids, as well as a stable, cost effective platform for walking over rails in the depot area, avoiding the risk of slips and falls walking over greasy sleepers or loose ballast.
Throughout the 10m length, the sloping and collector panels have a perfectly flat ‘shoulder’ section (marked ‘a’ on the diagram opposite) which provides, in conjunction with the mountings below, a reliably level surface to attach the easily cleaned mesh structure.
