Aquafrisch develops an automatic de-icing system for trains

Rail Depot equipment

Aquafrisch S.L. has developed an automatic defrosting system for bogies, locomotives and wagons, which provide an effective solution to the existing problem with the formation of ice in winter.

The system consists of nozzle grids that are placed under the bogies once the train stops. The system pulverizes hot water covering the areas of the bogie where snow and ice accumulate.

The operation of the defrosting system is fully automated, as is the water heating and recycling system.
