Rubber Sleeper Boots
Shanxi Middle-South Line (Coal Transportation) the Heavy-Haul Railway
Valuable coal resources in the western part of China need to be reliably transported to industrial areas in the eastern part of China. China-Shanxi Railway Central and Southern Railway is part of this essential connection. It starts at Watang Town, Shanxi Province, crosses the Yellow River from Taiqian County, Henan Province and enters Liangshan County, Shandong Province.
Sleeper boots promote smooth track deflection and provide a degree of elasticity for the otherwise rigid slab track. Concrete sleepers rest directly on microcell foam pads inside the rubber sleeper boots. The noise and vibration-absorbing sleeper boots are then partially embedded in concrete slabs.
