INNOVATION/ GOOD WORK DONE

Improving reliability
  • Quality audit on failures has been carried out as per the Head quarters instructions and remedial measures has been initiated.
  • The frequency of cleaning of radiators of 3phase locomotives has been increased to every schedule instead of alternate schedule.
  • Special drive has been conducted on CBC coupling locos and the same is conveyed to safety branch of SC Division.
  • 3phase locomotives received from CLW were identified to have a type defect in the labyrinth assembly of traction motor bearing. The labyrinth was made of mild steel and later on of cast iron with clearance of 0.5 mm. This was causing the rubbing of the two surfaces leading to seizure of traction motor. Now the material of labyrinths assembly has been changed to SGCI and clearance has been improved to 1.5 mm.
  • With a view to ensure eco friendly disposal of scrap, (i.e., rubber items, cotton waste etc.,) an incinerator plant of 50Kgs/hr capacity has been installed & commissioned. This plant was inaugurated by CEE/SC on 28th Dec’10.
  • To facilitate comfort of the Driver, Air Conditioning arrangement has been provided in two CABs of WAP7 locomotive and the loco is turned out on 24th Aug’10. The performance of this equipment is reported satisfactory. This is the first time any shed has provided Air Conditioner in a locomotive cab.
