Railway air systems norms and standards

All our railway products meet and exceed the most stringent norms for railway air systems. Railway compressors need to operate reliably in the most extreme ambient conditions, so all our railway products are resistant to dust, shock, vibration, fire and extreme temperatures. Railway equipment installed close to passengers should meet additional requirements for noise, safety and comfort. That is why all our products are built, tested and certified according to the most stringent railway norms, standards, directives and regulations. The railway air systems standards we meet and exceed:
