Railway Buffer Stops Market: Introduction

Railway buffer stops are used for stopping rail vehicles and also preventing them from crossing the physical section of the track. Railway buffer stops are designed according to the coupling used in the rail vehicles, as coupling is the first part that comes in contact with railway buffer stops and therefore, it should be according to the rail vehicle. Railway buffer stops are generally of following types – frictional buffer stops, fixed buffer stops, hydraulic/mechanical buffer stops, wheel stops, folding buffer stops and special designed buffer stops.

Frictional buffer stops are mainly used to decelerate the speed of the rail vehicle and stop it in a controlled manner. They provide cost-effective and energy-efficient solution in stopping the rail vehicle. Frictional buffer stops prevent from damage and reduce the risk of injury of the passengers travelling in the rail vehicle. Additionally, they are designed according to the speed and the weight of the rail vehicle.

Fixed buffer stops are used for the purpose of marking the end so that the rail vehicle can be stopped from falling. Fixed buffer stops do not provide energy absorbing solutions but they can stop a rail vehicle operating at slow speed. Hydraulic/mechanical buffer stops are used in the places where there is no space available for the sliding buffer stops.

Stationary hydraulic/mechanical device is used to deal with this problem. These stationary buffer stops have less strength as compared to the sliding buffer stops, as they are restricted by the length of the hydraulic/mechanical device. Wheel stops are used in maintenance facility and to prevent rail ends from the damage. Wheel stops are used for small rail vehicles that operate at a slow speed. Folding buffer stops prevent from shunting accidents. Special buffer stops are customized according to the rail vehicles, which include mountain railway, light narrow gauge heritage railways, etc.
