MIN FLOATING SLAB TRACK RUBBER BEARING Mass Transit Railway Systems are usually built underground or overhead in densely populated urban areas. The noise and vibration from the track system s ystem must be reduced to aareas. minimum thebe comfort of the people living and rubber workingbearings in the surrounding Thisfor can achieved by inserting resilient between the base plate of the rails and the concrete sleepers. In addition, the whole trackworks are supporte supported d on rubbe rubberr mountings to for form m a “floating tr track”. ack”. MIN F MIN Floati loati ng Slab Track Rubber Bearing s are used in supporting the Rails structure loads and accommodating the movements as well as providing noise insulation. MIN has successfully supplied the floating slab track rubber bearings in 1977 for Hong Kong Kong MRT Tsuen Wan Extension Line. The bearings are made of high quality natural rubber designed to dampen vibration and have excellent resistance to fatigue. MIN conducts its technical evaluation jointly Malaysian whereofin the MRB laboratory, there are sufficient test with facilities to carryRubber out theBoard, verification rubber pads to meet the technical specifications. s pecifications. MRB has a Servo Hydraulic Test Systems (MTS) of a maximum load capa capacity city of +/- 500 kN, dynamic amp amplitude litude of +/100mm and frequency up to 25 Hz.
