Railway Industry

We have used our wealth of experience to develop a wide range of exceptionally rugged axial and radial fans for diesel / electric locomotives. A global centre of excellence for the development, design, and engineering of customized industrial fans for Railways. Our Centrifugal Fans operating in India and other parts of the world have demonstrated durability and reliability. This has been possible because the fans were designed, manufactured, and validated in our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility to operate in some of the harshest environments.

AS Engineers’ industrial fans are reliable, sturdy, and can run relentlessly under extreme conditions. Please browse our range of industrial fans for the Railways.

Centrifugal Blower

Blowers play a crucial role in the railway industry, providing vital support for a range of applications, including:

  • Ventilating and cooling tunnels and subway systems

Ventilating and cooling tunnels and subway systems are essential applications of blowers in the railway industry. Blowers are used to providing fresh air to these enclosed spaces, as well as to remove any excess heat or fumes that may be present. This helps to create a safe and comfortable environment for passengers and workers. Blowers also cool electrical equipment, such as motors and generators, which may generate heat during operation. Blowers help ensure reliable and efficient railway operation by keeping these systems at an optimal temperature.

  • Exhausting smoke and fumes from locomotive engines

Exhausting fumes, gases, and other contaminants from engine rooms, workshops, and maintenance facilities are an essential application of blowers in the railway industry. The presence of these contaminants can harm the health and safety of railway employees, as well as the integrity of the equipment and facilities. Blowers can create negative pressure in these areas, effectively pulling the contaminants out of the workspace and away from employees. This helps to maintain a safe and healthy work environment, as well as protect the equipment and facilities from damage caused by exposure to these contaminants.

  • Providing pressurized air for brake systems and other train systems

Blowers are integral to the railway industry, providing pressurized air for various train systems, including brakes. To ensure the safety and efficiency of train operations, it is necessary to have a reliable source of pressurized air. Blowers are used to generating this pressurized air, which is then distributed throughout the train to operate various systems. In addition to providing pressurized air for brakes, blowers can also be used for other train systems, such as doors and signalling. In railway workshops and maintenance facilities, blowers can exhaust fumes, gases, and other contaminants, ensuring a safe and healthy work environment. In tunnels and subway systems, blowers can provide ventilation and cooling to ensure the comfort and safety of passengers and employees. Overall, the role of blowers in the railway industry is essential for the smooth and safe operation of trains.

  • Conveying materials such as coal and waste in railway systems

Using blowers in railway systems can be crucial for maintaining the trains’ and tracks’ safety and efficiency. One application of blowers in the railway industry is conveying materials such as coal and waste. Blowers can transport these materials from one location to another, helping keep the tracks clean and clear of debris. This is especially important in rail systems that rely on coal as a primary fuel source, as it can be prone to spilling and causing track obstructions. Blowers can also be used to exhaust fumes, gases, and other contaminants from engine rooms, workshops, and maintenance facilities, helping to maintain a safe and healthy environment for workers. Additionally, blowers can provide pressurized air for brake systems and other train systems, ensuring that these systems function correctly at all times.

  • Handling hazardous gases and vapours in railway systems

Blowers play a crucial role in the railway industry, as they maintain a safe and efficient transportation system. In railway systems, blowers are used for a variety of purposes, including ventilating and cooling tunnels and subway systems, exhausting fumes, gases, and other contaminants from engine rooms, workshops, and maintenance facilities, providing pressurized air for brake systems and other train systems, conveying materials such as coal and waste, and handling hazardous gases and vapours. These functions are essential for the proper operation of railway systems, and using high-quality blowers is crucial to ensure the safety and reliability of trains. At AS Engineers, we are proud to offer a range of blowers designed explicitly for use in the railway industry. Our team of experts is always available to help you select the suitable blower for your specific needs.

  • Providing air for pneumatic conveying systems in railway systems

Pneumatic conveying systems are commonly used in the railway industry to transport coal, waste, and other bulk materials. These systems rely on pressurized air to move the material through a pipeline, often over long distances; AS Engineers’ blowers can provide the necessary pressurized air for these systems, ensuring efficient and reliable material transport. Our blowers are designed for durability and versatility, making them suitable for various pneumatic conveying applications in the railway industry.

  • Cooling electronic equipment in control rooms and other railway facilities

Cooling electronic equipment in control rooms and other railway facilities is essential to ensure its proper functioning and prevent overheating. AS Engineers’ blowers can provide a steady flow of cool air to these systems, helping to regulate their temperature and to avoid downtime due to malfunction. Our blowers are designed with durability and efficiency in mind and are suitable for a wide range of applications in the railway industry. Whether you need to ventilate a tunnel, exhaust fumes from a workshop, or provide pressurized air for a brake system, AS Engineers has the solutions to keep your railway operations running smoothly. So, if you are in the railway industry and need reliable and efficient equipment, we encourage you to contact AS Engineers to see how we can help.

  • We provide passenger comfort air, such as in-train air conditioning systems.

Providing air for passenger comfort is an essential application of blowers in the railway industry. Train air conditioning systems rely on blowers to circulate cool, fresh air throughout the passenger cabins. This helps to create a comfortable and pleasant travel experience for passengers, particularly on long journeys or in hot weather. Blowers can also ventilate and cool other railway facilities, such as control rooms and maintenance areas, ensuring that equipment and employees are kept at a comfortable temperature.
