Track geometry measuring tool
Set of 10 Mk4 Universal Pelgage Voidmeters 0040/017651
The track deterioration begins from the moment the track is laid. Measuring the level of deterioration under normal conditions which is very important, the Universal clip-on Voidmeter is useful tool for all railway track engineers.
They can be easily clipped on the foot of the Flat Bottom or Bulk Head rails, the footpiece rests firmly on the ballast and the sliding collar is pressed up to the underside of the main bracket. One Voidmeter is used for each sleeper bearing area. The passage of a train over a voided sleeper causes the main bracket to depress the sliding collar. The rail returns after the train has passed, and the gap then left between the main bracket and the sliding collar on the vertical pin is the void.
