L.B. Foster Company: GreaseGuide™

L.B. Foster Company

The company says its new and improved applicator bar features the patent pending GreaseGuide™ designed to be a dramatic advancement over the old-style grease troughs that only collected wasted grease. The GreaseGuide re-directs or “guides” this grease back to the wheel flange where it can “carry” out its intended purpose — protecting the rail and wheels. The GreaseGuide liner re-shapes to conform to the profile of each passing wheel flange. This new feature is available on all new systems or as a simple retro-fit to MC-4XL® bars and is part of a bar upgrade kit that also includes improvements designed to enhance bar flow and performance with improved grease carry down and efficiency by reducing waste.
