WIXOM, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Railmark Holdings Inc. announced today that it has launched two new product lines designed to make the railroad industry a little more “Green” and a little more “Efficient.”
Railmark’s new RAILheat™ products utilizes a new Far Infrared (FIR) technology that is safer for the environment and extremely energy efficient. RAILheat™ products are designed for preventing freezing in railroad equipment and operations. Railmark now offers (a.) heating panels for crossing gate mechanism boxes; (b.) heating panels for maintaining heat on locomotives and other equipment; (c.) heating wraps for pipes and water tanks in passenger cars and locomotives; (d.) heating for locomotive seats; and (e.) passenger car electric heating systems. RAILheat™ products are lightweight, utilize 95% of its energy source for heat conversion, have a 50,000 hour operational life and are safer for the environment because they do not contain metal, do not put off any emissions or sound, and efficiently uses power. This technology has successfully heated locomotives and rail equipment in Russia’s Siberian territory. The Company believes that this technology is the answer to freezing water systems in passenger cars and will economically prevent failures in crossing gates due to freezing weather. RAILheat™ products are available in 24 Volt DC and 110, 240 and 480 Volt AC with varying wattages.
The Company’s Railmark Track Works Inc. subsidiary is the exclusive supplier to the railroad industry for a new line of premium quality bio-based, biodegradable rail curve and switch lubricants that exceed all others on the market today. Ultralube® brand railroad lubricants are manufactured from renewable USA-grown crop based oils. These products have four times more lubricity than petroleum-based greases and oils while offering better performance for rail lubricators and switch components and improve safety for employees and the environment. These new products meet EPA’s Environmental Preferable Purchasing (EPP) criteria and are ECO-SAFE and Non-toxic.
Mr. B. Allen Brown, Railmark President & CEO comments, “We are excited to launch these ECO-SAFE products to the railroad industry that will improve operations and reduce our carbon footprint.
