The hoses for the railway industry are made of tested and certified materials with low emission of toxic gases. MTG can supply brake hoses in service lengths with specific banded fittings and a hydrostatic test for each single item, in accordance with the standard EN 1402.
In the railway sector, rubber hoses also have the function of protecting cables that supply trains, signals and other electrical systems. They prevent cable damage, working as a barrier against atmospheric agents, moisture and mechanical damage from debris. They also provide isolation against electric shock and can help prevent fires caused by electrical failures.
In the railway sector, rubber hoses are a fundamental part of the system that moves the pantograph, which supply the train with the necessary electricity. They allow the passage of air from the compressor to the pneumatic cylinder or other components of the system. They are designed to be durable and resistant to fluids and the specific pressures used in the pneumatic system helping to ensure the safe and reliable operation of the train and tram.
The hoses used in the trains ventilation systems are made with a particular internal and external convoluted structure to meet the need of extreme flexibility. Rubber hoses help to ensure that passengers and crew members have access to clean and fresh air during the journey. They are also used in the ventilation of endothermic engines.
Frequency converters ensure the operation of all electronic equipment on train board. During their functioning, they shall be kept at a constant temperature. The rubber hoses are used for the passage of coolant and meet the most stringent requirements of waterproofing and electrical insulation.
