Draft gear RT-130 (T2 class)
The draft gear RT-130 is the first friction draft gear of T2 class with improved specifications designed for use in automatic coupling devices of tank cars and intended to provide more effective protection of wagons and cargo carried in them from impact of longitudinal loads arising during shunting work on gravity sorting yards and in the transient modes of train driving.
The use of a “cone-wedge-cone” type friction unit, as well as small and large TecsPak polymer side elastic packings, makes it possible to achieve the innovative solutions implemented in this T2 class device.
Simplicity of design was achieved by means of TecsPak polymer cushions applied as a working body, providing greater reliability and allowing reducing the operating costs.
It should be noted that RT-130 may be mounted on all types of freight cars except gas tank cars.
