Railway applications - In-service wheelset operation requirements - In-service and off-vehicle wheelset maintenance

Status: Valid

To ensure safety and interoperability, this Standard gives:

- the limits for in-service and off-vehicle wheelsets;

- the operations to be carried out for which the specific values (and/or criteria) remain to be defined in the maintenance plan.

This European Standard applies to wheelsets and axle boxes complying with the following European Standards:

- EN 13103, EN 13104;

- EN 13260, EN 13261, EN 13262;

- EN 13979-1;

- EN 13715;

- EN 13749. that comprise:

- the axle mounted with wheel diameters greater than or equal to 330 mm;

- axle boxes with bearings and grease. This European Standard is also applicable to wheelsets:

- fitted with brake discs, final drive, transmission or noise-damping systems, as appropriate;

- not complying with the above European Standards, but complying with the international requirements in force, for example in UIC leaflets, before the approval of these standards;

- with tyred wheels;

- with resilient wheels. For equipment not covered by Directive 2008/57/EC, this European Standard may be applied, noting that different values may be used.

All dimensions in this Standard are in millimetres (mm).

It is necessary to describe in a specific document the tasks to be performed in order to maintain wheelsets within the limits defined therein.

NOTE The specific values and criteria are defined in an appropriate maintenance plan.
