Nordco Rail Services & Inspection Technologies: RTS-300 In-Line Ultrasonic Rail Inspection System
The company's RTS-300 in-line rail inspection systems have more than 20 years of field-proven performance. Designed to meet the rigors of in-line inspection requirements, handling testing speeds of up to 300 ft./min. (1.5 m/sec.), each rail is automatically tested, classified and properly marked based on the test results. The operator monitors and controls the testing color monitor via a keyboard. Each rail is mapped on the screen in real-time and results are either stored or transmitted to a central data base computer.
