SKOKIE, Ill. — Tenneco Inc. (NYSE: TEN) will be exhibiting new products and advanced solutions for rail customers at the 2022 InnoTrans in Berlin September 20 – 23, one of the world’s leading trade fairs for transport technology.
Tenneco will be represented by three of its broad portfolio of original-equipment businesses and product offerings – braking, systems protection and Deva® branded self-lubricating bearings – with stands located in three different halls to meet respective customer special needs and fields of interests.
Tenneco´s braking business will showcase its new Jurid® 847 LL brake block for rail freight in hall 1.2 (stand 430).
In hall 18 (stand 620) the company´s Systems Protection unit is going to present the new ROUNDIT® EMI DW solution, which combines shielding against electromagnetic interference (EMI) and grounding requirements in one product.
Tenneco´s Deva brand will be exhibiting two new product highlights for rail systems in hall 23 (stand 880): Deva.tex®544 and Deva.ThrustSealTMND541 specialized multi-layer materials, designed for application in high performance, maintenance-free and self-lubricating sliding bearings.
In addition to the new product offerings the three Tenneco businesses will have a selection of their respective product ranges for rail applications on display at this year’s InnoTrans show.
New Jurid 847® LL brake block helps reduce traffic noise, lower service cost, improve operation security
The advanced Jurid® 847 LL brake block has been homologated by the International Union of Railways (UIC) and represents Tenneco´s second generation of LL blocks for Europe. Optimized to reduce the rate of wheel wear and likelihood of costly wheel damage, the new Jurid® 847 helps reduce total Life Cycle Costing (LCC) and helps improve operational security of freight wagons.
Jurid® 847 has been specifically developed to satisfy increasing demands to reduce noise emission caused by railway traffic. It uses an optimized contact surface shape, advanced friction material manufacturing techniques, and is expected to sustain the high thermal loads seen on Alpine routes, enabling usage across a broad range of rail tracks and with no limitations for s-classification wagons.
The product formulation was derived from Tenneco’s UIC-certified organic brake block products which are known to improve in-service wheel life. In addition to in-house simulation and dynamometer development, the new Jurid® 847 LL brake block was extensively evaluated during the UIC in-service tests as part of the homologation process.
Strict new freight noise legislation is being phased in throughout Europe, with non-compliant freight wagons expected to be refused entry to certain countries or routes. The new Jurid® 847 LL brake block fulfils the requirements of the UIC for 2xBg and 2xBgu wagons and is fully exchangeable with cast iron blocks P10 and/or the first-generation LL blocks. It provides operators with cost benefits through improved wagon LCC and reduced noise emissions.
