LHB Maintenance Activities

LHB Maintenance Activities carried out at Coaching Depot, Agartala

      Besides all maintenance activities that are being carried out routinely at Pitline and Sickline as per maintenance manuals suggested in CAMTECH Manuals, RDSO Manuals and pamphlets etc. there are other maintenance habits that the staffs and supervisors of Coaching Depot, Agartala follows which they consider is of utmost importance for smooth maintenance and running of LHB coaches. Some incidental examples are cited as to why and how these maintenance habits are followed.

In-house Development of Heavy Duty Hydraulic Press

A heavy duty hydraulic press has been developed by  Sick line, SRC coaching depot which is very much useful  to insert and extract different types of bushes like control arm, traction centre, traction rod, vertical roll link of LHB coaches, centre pivot push, anchor link bush of ICF/HYBRID coaches.


It requires a hydraulic bottle jack and different types/sizes of adapters as per job and all these things have been developed in house.




Silent block extracting tool

To press the anchor link silent block, a gadget has been fabricated, which is very easy to install & consumption of manpower is very less. The gadget is made of one rectangular frame/stand with base plate fixed at the centre for anchor link resting & one top plate (floating) for pressing the silent block. The top plate hangs with springs on either ends with sufficient gap between the base plate & top plate for easy placing of anchor link & silent block.
