Description

Within the UWC range of tank cars, this is one of the most technically sophisticated models: it features a stainless steel boiler, double casing thermal insulation, an air gap for heating the product and electric heating system.

The new generation tank car with the boiler made of rust-resisting steel possesses improved technical and economic characteristics in comparison with the analogues available on the market. The undercarriage with an increased axle load and boiler space of 44 m³ (+5,5 m³ compared to standard models)  provides for the enhanced freight car payload capacity of 72 t (+9 t of extra frieght with 1/8 t/m³ soildity compared to mass models). An increased run time between repairs (1 mln km or 8 years) is a significant competitive advantage of the freight car of model 15-6913, which allows cutting down the cost of the freight car life cycle by almost 3 times.
