STATIONARY WASH CONCEPT

C1000 SOA

The TRAIN WASH system can be designed in the C1000 SOA version as a stationary passage wash system for trains without length limitation, with or without current collector. The side surfaces and alternatively, at an additional cost, the roof slopes (with additional washing brushes) are cleaned during the passage. Depending on the passage speed, the system can be designed with a corresponding number of brush pairs to rub in washing chemicals and wash off the dissolved dirt. The train wash is completed with free-standing spray and rinsing stands.

PASSAGE WASH

for trains with/without current collector

In addition to an outdoor installation, this wash system concept can also be accommodated in a passage wash hall. The frame construction of the TRAIN WASH C1000 SOA is powder-coated in RAL 9007 grey aluminium as standard.

The vehicle passes through the self-propelled washing system for lateral washing. No front and rear washing is possible.

Features:

  • Optimal for short and long vehicles (unlimited wash length)
  • Short wash times
  • Short wash hall/wash surface possible

FLEXIBLE WASH CONCEPT

C5400SOA

The TRAIN WASH C5400 SOA system enables trains without current collector to be cleaned semi-stationary or also by overrun washing. The vehicle positions itself before or after the front/rear wash and passes the self-propelled wash system for lateral washing. Horizontal washing possible as an option.

SEMI-STATIONARY PASSAGE WASH

for rail vehicles

As an extension to the basic model, brushes with skirts and inclined horizontal brushes for the lower side train area can be integrated at an additional cost. 

Our systems are equipped with a PLC controller as standard. Thanks to intelligent transfer measurement, the lateral brushes ensure an even and thorough wash result.

This wash system concept can be implemented both in the wash hall and outdoors. The frame construction of the TRAIN WASH C5400 SOA is powder-coated in RAL 9007 grey aluminium as standard.

Stationary wash features:

  • All wash zones are possible
  • Medium to long wash times depending on vehicle length and wash course
  • Appropriately long wash hall/wash surface required

Semi-stationary wash features:

  • All wash zones are possible
  • Short to medium wash times depending on vehicle length and wash course
  • Short wash hall/wash surface possible

Among other things, Christ is characterised by the fact that our engineers find solutions for rare and difficult applications. As can be seen in the picture on the right, we have designed a train wash system for a monorail train. The main challenge was that the "track bed" has a completely different structure, which had to be taken into account accordingly in terms of the dimensions and movement sequences of the system plant engineering.

Another challenge which arose with this project is that the train drives on supports and the wagons are strongly curved underneath. This makes the lower part of the train much more visible than with normal train types and therefore requires intensive cleaning. Our designers developed a special version of a skirt cleaning system that can cope with this task.

Christ CAR CARE

TRAM PRECLEAN is a strongly acidic special detergent for pre-cleaning rail vehicles. It is applied with a dedicated spraying device in the wash system. The mineral dirt (e.g. overhead line dust) dissolved in this way can be washed off more easily during the subsequent brush washing. TRAM WASH is a highly alkaline special brush shampoo, which has been developed for thorough cleaning. It is either dosed directly into the train/tram wash system for brush washing or applied by means of a chemical pre-spraying device before the main wash.

FLEXIBLE WASH CONCEPT

C7000SOA

The TRAIN WASH system can be designed in the C7000 SOA version for passage washing, semi-stationary washing or for overrun washing of trains and trams with current collector. This consists of 2 portal halves without cross beam. The C7000 SOA system concept can be extended with additional stationary lateral brush brushes from the C1000 SOA.

OVERHEAD WASH CONCEPT

The swivelling, split, horizontal wash brush can also be used to clean round front/rear surfaces.

The frame construction of the TRAIN WASH C7000 SOA is powder-coated in RAL 9007 grey aluminium as standard.

The lateral brushes, controlled by active power measurement, ensure an even and thorough wash result. Due to different trimming lengths on the brush shaft, even slightly curved side sections can be optimally cleaned.

Thanks to the swivelling, split, horizontal wash brush (split horizontal brush), the vehicle can be washed despite the current collector being folded out. Even round vehicle front surfaces can be optimally cleaned thanks to the multi-angle adjustability of the two brush halves. Stationary drying blowers are available for the TRAIN WASH system for an extra charge.

Stationary wash features:

  • All wash zones are possible
  • Medium to long wash times depending on vehicle length and wash course
  • Appropriately long wash hall/wash surface required

Semi-stationary wash features

  • All wash zones are possible
  • Short to medium wash times depending on vehicle length and wash course
  • Short wash hall/wash surface possible

The train wash system can be equipped with a spoiler brush to wash pointed train contours.

In addition to the split horizontal brush, it is possible to equip the system with an OPTI-3D brush. Particularly difficult contours are no problem with the OPTI-3D brush. In addition, the brush can be supplied as an inclined horizontal brush or a skirt brush.
