L.B. Foster Company: Lubricants and Friction Modifiers

L.B. Foster Company

Kelsan Lubricants provides lubricants and friction modifiers in solid stick or liquid form. LCF (Low Coefficient of Friction) reduces wheel flange and rail wear on all rail rolling stock. Tests show it greatly reduces L/V forces, reducing derailment potential, the company says. Liquid LCF can be applied manually, by Kelsan's SoloLube applicator, or by hi-rail. The HPF (High Positive Friction) product line controls rail head friction to reduce slip/stick. Similar to the solid stick LCF and HPF products.
