The final check of functionality and safety conducted on a Rail Vehicle (Locomotive, Monorail, Train or Streetcar), is the testing and verificaiton of the integrity of the hydraulic braking system.
This Hydraulic Flushing Cart, tests the pressure in the system and identifies any pressure changes. It then polishes the Hydraulic Brake Fluid to the correct degree of cleanliness (NAS 5) or better. Oil from the refinery is not sufficiently rated for a braking application and needs to be additionally refined. The cleanliness is monitored by digital instrumentation which produces a continuous printout, providing comprehensive test verification data.
