HISTORY
 This fail-safe air brake system is based upon a design patented by
George Westinghouse on March 5, 1872.
 An Air Brake is a conveyance braking system actuated by
compressed air.
 Before 1872 a piston like plate was used on the train wheel for
continue the braking system.
After 1872 by using air braking system baker's
are use to brake the wheel.

INTRODUCTION
 In Indian railway there are different type of
coaches which are manufactured by different
units
 ICF (Integrated Coach Factory), Chennai
 RCF (Rail Coach Factory), Kapurtala
 BEML (Bharat Earth Movers Limited),
Bengaluru

WHAT IS BRAKE ?????
A brake is a device by means of which artificial
resistance is applied to a moving machine
member, in order to slow or stop the motion of a
machine.
What is Air Brake system ?
Brakes applied with the help of air pressure are
called Air Brakes and the system actuated to
apply this phenomenon is called as Air Brake
System.

AIR BRAKING SYSTEM IN INDIAN RAILWAYS

  • 1. 1 AIR BRAKING SYSTEM IN INDIAN RAILWAYS PRESENTED BY: ABIN KRISHNA.V.S
  • 2. CONTENTS  History  Introduction  Working principle  Functions of components  Advantages  Limitations  Conclusion 2
  • 3. 3 HISTORY  This fail-safe air brake system is based upon a design patented by George Westinghouse on March 5, 1872.  An Air Brake is a conveyance braking system actuated by compressed air.  Before 1872 a piston like plate was used on the train wheel for continue the braking system.

  • 6. WHAT IS BRAKE ????? A brake is a device by means of which artificial resistance is applied to a moving machine member, in order to slow or stop the motion of a machine. What is Air Brake system ? Brakes applied with the help of air pressure are called Air Brakes and the system actuated to apply this phenomenon is called as Air Brake System. 6
  • 7. AIR BRAKE CONCEPT  Basically air brake’s are uses on heavy vehicle's. There are two type’s of air braking system. 1. Single pipe braking system. 2. Twin pipe braking system. 7
  • 8. 1.SINGLE PIPE BRAKING SYSTEM Components  Main reservoir.  Compressor.  Driver brake valve/Feed valve.  Brake pipe.  Angle cocks.  Brake cylinder.  Auxiliary reservoir.  Brake block. 8
  • 10. FUNCTION OF COMPONENTS  Compressor: The pump which draws air from atmosphere and compresses it on the train.  Main Reservoir: Storage tank for compressed air for braking and other pneumatic system.  Feed Valve: To ensure that the brake pipe pleasure remains at the required level. 10
  • 11.  Brake pipe: The pipe running the length of the train. Which transmits the variation in pressure required to control the brake.  Angle cocks: At the end of the each vehicle angle cocks are provided to allow the ends of the brake pipe hoses.  Brake cylinder: Each vehicle are at least one brake cylinder. Sometimes two or more are provided. 11
  • 12.  Auxiliary reservoir: There is always a source of air available to operate the brake auxiliary valve is connected on one side of the piston of triple valve.  Brake bloke: This is frictional material which is pressed against the surface of the wheel.  Triple valve: The orientation of the brake on each vehicle is controlled by the tripled valve. 12
  • 13. 2.TWIN PIPE BRAKING SYSTEM Twin pipe is the advanced process on which it is possible to use of the air in the auxiliary reservoir more quickly then brake pipe can recharge it.  Basically there are two pipes are use on the each vehicle. 13
  • 14. 14
  • 15. ADVANTAGES  Air is available everywhere in atmosphere so the brake can never run out of its operating.  Air does not corrode the metals so the life of pneumatic brake is more.  Air brakes are effective even with considerable leakage, so an air brake system can be designed with sufficient fail-safe capacity to stop the vehicle safely even when leaking. 15
  • 17. CONCLUSION  Due to it’s maximum effectiveness in terms of performance, it is mostly preferred for high end works like supercars, mining work etc. 17
