Rail Industry Component:
New York Air Brake Corp., a Knorr Brake Co.: HI-FLO® Gladhand/Cold Loc™ Gasket
New York Air Brake Corp., a Knorr Brake Co.
HI-FLO® gladhands increase air signal propagation by 9 percent, allowing faster charging times — and HI-FLO gladhands provide 55 percent higher pull-apart resistance, reducing pull-apart and train delays, the company says, adding that a 57 percent larger guard arm casting increases service life. The Cold Loc™ gasket with patented 5-degree entrance angle provides 61 percent greater gasket surface area, the company says. The HI-FLO gladhand with Cold Loc gasket improves alignment, reduces air hose separation and lowers life-cycle costs, the company says.
