What is the rail thermit welding?
The aluminothermic welding (also known as thermit welding) is a method of heating by using a superheated molten metal produced by an exothermic reaction between a metal oxide and a metal aluminum to heat the metal. Rail thermite welding installs the end of the rail with appropriate clearance in the special mold. When the end is preheated to a certain temperature, the high-temperature liquid metal formed by the reaction of the hot agent is injected into the mold to melt the end of the rail to achieve welding.
The thermit welding products supplied by AGICO have reliable and stable performance, have successfully passed Chinese rail welding standard TB/T1632-2005 test, and been authorized Railway Ministry of China, passed Australia standard AS1085.15-1995 test, Indonesia welding joint inspection test and Taiwan SGS quality inspection test.
