Intermediate Production Systems

1) SF 400 TH System (SF 350 TH)

Willamette Valley Company Railroad Division's newest innovation in tie plugging, is a single-meter portable application system. This portable system is the ideal size for small maintenance crews. The work in medium-sized maintenance projects becomes much more efficient when using this new application system.

The same technologies and commitment to excellence, as in the high-production metered application systems, have been used to develop this medium-sized application system. Since the design of the single-meter portable application system is similar to the large application systems, this unit allows for use in all types of weather conditions. This system is convenient enough to be rolled on the rail by hand or fit in a high-rail vehicle and is ideal for those medium-sized maintenance projects such as bridge decks, frogs and switches or spot gauging.

This system is the perfect middle ground between the large application systems and the handheld applicators. Because this system uses 12-gallon reservoirs, maintenance crews will be able to take advantage of purchasing chemical in bulk. When compared to handheld applications, this new system can be utilized at a higher rate of production.

System Features:

  • On-board power supply.
  • Fits easily into most section vehicles.
  • Heavy-duty frame construction for durability and reliability.
  • Minimal maintenance and clean up.

2) Sperling Tie-Plugger Chassis

Willamette Valley Company's Railroad Division, in partnership with Sperling Railway Services, Inc., offers a tie-plugging chassis, smaller than the Sperling Large Tie-Plugging Chassis, for use in single rail gangs with ties removed. There are crawlers on either side of the chassis to allow working both sides of the rail, without having to turn the machine. The Sperling Chassis has a quiet pack diesel engine generator, air compressor and hydraulics, as well as a variable speed hydraulic crawler travel. It also has easy to fill chemical storage tanks and a center lift point.

The Sperling Chassis has been designed to work fluidly with SpikeFast products for easy and efficient application.

System Features:

  • Crawlers on either side of the chassis.
  • On-board quiet pack diesel engine generator.
  • Easy to fill chemical storage tanks.
