Danbury, Connecticut (PRWEB) April 22, 2011
Sperry Rail is excited to announce the commissioning of the 50th 950 Series Hi-Rail Detector Car in Danbury, Connecticut last week. This marks a major milestone for Sperry and this incredibly popular series of vehicles.
“The popularity of the Sperry 950 series comes down to the fact it is a true workhorse that performs reliably in even the toughest environments,” commented Markus Nottelmann, Commercial Director for Sperry Rail. The newest features of the 950 include Sperry’s latest 48-channel test system, Sperry’s unmatched X-Fire defect detection technology, and various ergonomic and safety features including a walk-through passage between the driving cab and operating area.
The deployment of the 50th 950 Series Hi-Rail Detector vehicle also marks the deployment of the 100th Sperry 1900 test system, the only 48-channel test system in the rail flaw detection industry. The greater number of channels allows Sperry to deploy more probes that increase defect detection and reduce the risks associated with broken rails and derailments.
Both the Sperry 950 Series and the Sperry 1900 test system have the distinction of being the most produced hi-rail detector vehicle series and the most produced test system for rail flaw detection purposes.
Founded in 1928, Sperry developed the first nondestructive method of detecting flaws in rail, and set the standard for industry inspection techniques. As the largest provider of rail flaw detection services in the world, Sperry maintains active relationships with the world’s largest track systems, in North America, Europe, and Asia, as well as many metropolitan and shortline systems.
