|101||Multi layer wheel set stacking arrangement||
Multi layer wheel set stacking arrangement has been developed and provided in PP Yard/BIA. This streamlines wheel sets movement, enhance working space and easies out bogie section activities.
|102||Multi Dimensional spring cleaning device at PP Yard/BIA||
In regular practice coil springs used in Bogie are being cleaned manually. During manual cleaning it is observed that dust particles are spread in the nearby area, which is not desirable. In addition to the above, carrying of spring from the dismntling area to the cleaning bench is also a laborious job.
To get rid of the above a “Multi dimensional spring cleaning device” has been made with the available resources. A rejected unserviceable conveyor system has been used by providing motorized reduction gear box with chain sprocket system. It’s two sides are having protecting wings for safety purpose and four types of brushing arrangements provided for cleaning of springs in different ways.
No new items used. Only scrap & unserviceable relevant items used. Hence total direct cost is Nil. Indirect cost for scrap value is Rs.10,000/- approximately & cost of man power is Rs.8000/- approximately.

|104||Heavy Corrosion attention - Mysore Workshop||
The following practices are being done during the corrosion attention of passenger coaches
|105||Cleaning of breather plug to reduce wheel shelling in LHB Coaches||
Wheel shelling on wheel tread is a common problem in LHB coaches. This primarily occurs due to partial brake binding. When the brakes are not fully released, some amount of skidding takes place which gives flat spots on wheel tread. If this phenomenon occurs repeatedly, it eventually leads to metal chip off, also known as wheel shelling. As a result, the coach is then marked sick on this account if the length & depth of shelling spot becomes 40 mm or more and 1.5 mm or more respectively. Subsequently, the wheel needs to be changed by detaching the coach from rake. This involves a lot of efforts and a significant cost.
During brake application and release process, air exhaust and intake takes place through a small part present in the brake cylinder integrated unit, known as ‘Breather plug’ (fig.1).During course of time, dust and other foreign particles deposit in the vent hole (fig.2). This obstructs the passage of air due to which brake application and releasing do not take place in a smooth manner, which eventually leads to intermittent skidding, thereby resulting in wheel shelling.
The breather plug was then cleaned properly and installed back (fig.3). This practice was started from 01.02.2018. The condition of wheel before cleaning of breather plug (fig.4, wheel shelling marks can be seen) and after cleaning of breather plug (fig.5, wheel shelling marks have considerably reduced) is shown below. The cleaning of breather plug helps in smooth brake application and releasing, thereby preventing wheel skidding.
|106||Western commode with inbuilt ‘S’ trap and Cistern for better Flushing||
Flush cock provided in the coach toilet is very hard to operate and is located at inconvenient location. This creates reluctance amongst passengers to use it. As a result faecal discharge remains in the pan and causes bad odour in the coach toilet.
To get rid of these problems the existing conventional western commode replaced with western commode inbuilt ‘S’ trap and Cistern for better flushing in three 1st AC coaches of train no. 18239/40 Shivnath Express on trial basis. Inbuilt S trap ensures smooth passage and establishes siphoning action. This is assisted by sudden discharge of limited quantity of water from Cistern (around 06 litres per flush), thus water efficient flushing. This also solve the problem of bad odour up to maximum possible extent by ensuring proper water column.
|107||Natural forced ventilation in Bio Tank fitted toilets||
Prior to fitment of Bio Tanks in coach toilet, natural ventilation was available through commode chute. During run, air enters and taken away all the foul smell generated due to defecation and urination. After fitment of bio tank, the problem of foul smell persisted and was a source of passenger complaint.
To overcome the problem of foul smell Natural forced ventilation system has been evolved using funnels. Two funnels have been provided in a coach facing forward and reverse directions each. Funnels are connected with coach toilet through pipes.
|108||Provision of Green toilet in Coaching Depot, BSP||
Two lavatories and two urinals were in abandoned condition in Coaching Depot, Bilaspur and the need of functional toilets was experienced several times for staff convenience as a welfare measure. However, that was requiring the complete dismantling of existing structure and rebuilding of new one along with connection to septic tank. Also the use of this existing toilet is unhygienic due to its outlet was open in atmosphere. The modification done by connecting the outlet of existing toilet with the serviceable biotank available in Coaching Depot by using 150 mm dia PVC pipe. Thus the problem of open discharge of defecation gets solved by biologically efficient way.
|109||Water Bottle crusher at Coaching Depot, BSP||
The sizable no. of empty water bottles are found in trains retuning to the base depot Bilaspur. The bottles otherwise are dumped in Garbage collection points for disposal by Municipality. It is seen that rag pickers collect the bottles for resell to the recyclers. In this process, the rag pickers litter the Garbage points and make proximity dirty.
To recycle the same bottle crusher
|110||Gadget for bending of Air Brake Pipe||
A gadget for bending of Air Brake Pipes was developed by a group of staff of Air Brake Section in the month of March’18 by utilizing one serviceable brake cylinder and some other scrap materials. It works with the aid of compressed air. The bending work carried out in cold condition of pipes. Due to cold bending grain structure of material do not changes as well as no stress develops. Desired angle of bend and finished are also achieved.
|111||Trolley Mounted Lightening Arrangement||
To improve the lightening arrangement, air brake staff has designed developed and manufactured Trolley Mounted Lightening Arrangement for better illumination for testing of brake gear arrangement in the month of October’2017.
|112||Fixture for cleaning and painting of lower spring beam at Motibagh workshop||
Bogie section of Motibagh workshop has manufactured one fixture for cleaning and painting of lower spring beam . It rotates at 360 degree resulting easy for painting and welding. Also improve the quality and save time for repairing and painting.
|113||Modified bio Tank with reduction in volume for Non CBC Coaches||
Motibagh WS has fabricated 02 nos. modified bio Tank with reduction in volume for Non CBC Coaches by 30% with the following changes.
|114||Cartridge Tapered Roller Bearing section - Wheel Shop||
CTRB section of Wheel shop was developed and declared as a Centre of Excellence on 27/11/2017. Various resources available in the section are as follows,
1. For cleaning, The following machines are being used.
a) Grease purging machine b) Grease loosening machine and c) Cone cleaning machine
2. An air plug gauge (Make: Baker) is being used in Wheel shop which helps in measuring the diameter of double cup /cone assembly in CTRB bearings. This gauge can measure upto 0.1 micron and the tested data can be stored and retrieved from the system for reference.
3. Bore diameter of the cone is being measured using three legged digital micrometer. In order to measure other dimensions, seperate gauges are available which are being calibrated using a master gauge on regular basis.
4. Seperate storage area is available for storing various components of the CTRB bearing.
5. Laser engraving machine is being used for entering the details on CTRB bearing instead of manual etching process.
6. Automatic grease filling machine is being used after inspection instead of manual process.
In addition to above machineries and gauges, the following works have been carried out to develop this section as a 'Centre of Excellence'
a) Wheel Exhibit has been displayed showcasing the different set of wheels used in Indian Railways thereby preserving the Heritage assets.
b) Epoxy flooring has been provided in the CTRB section in order to ensure a clean workplace.
c) Wall panelling using compreg sheet, false ceiling facilities have been made as per RDSO checklist.
d) In order to achieve Energy efficiency, LED lights and natural pipe lighting arrangments have been made. Enegy efficient air conditioner is being used.
