Rail Wheel Inspection System

Blue Star E&E provides customised rail wheel inspection systems to meet the growing requirement in the market. The rail wheel inspection system is either of the phased array ultrasonic or the conventional UT type. The system is used for the detection of defects in the wheel rim and wheel disk of all types of railway wheels. It is a multi-channel and multi-probe system which targets different zones of the wheel.

A few notable features are:

  • Ability to detect internal defects and fatigue defects in the wheel rim as well as the wheel disk
  • One-position, integrated flaw detection for the wheel rim and wheel disk
  • Compatibility with flaw detection in all types of trains
  • Optional facility to automatically load and unload railway wheels
  • Detection waveform to display and playback in A, B, C scans or bar-chart modes
  • Automatic data report creation and highlighting of defects in tested components
  • Reduced inspection time
  • Full volumetric coverage
  • Nearest sub-surface resolution
  • High SNR on long ranges
