Hydraulic Traction Drive Systems Modernize Railway Vehicles

Since 1997, Chvalis, a premier distributor of Parker Hannifin based in the Czech Republic, has been focusing on the development and construction of hydraulic systems for the needs of general industry and mechanical engineering, working toward modernizing the Czech Republic.

One specialty of the company is providing technical solutions and delivery of hydraulics for railway vehicles such as diesel locomotives and railcars.

This includes not only new hydraulic systems but also modernization and reconstruction of obsolete vehicles.

About Chvalis

Chvalis is an expert on delivering turnkey solutions according to rail manufacturer's specifications, including delivery, installation and commissioning. Chvalis has been using Parker's products since 1992 in its systems for their unmatched quality, reliability and security. Components also meet the most demanding certifications. In the railway industry, Chvalis is the holder of the Certification of Technical Competence of the Czech Railways supplier and the SŽDC Supplier's Certificate.

Thanks to its extensive network of local branches, which are always associated with the ParkerStore service and ParkerStore sales hydraulics and tires, Chvalis is able to provide rolling stock operators 24-hour warranty and post-warranty service. The ParkerStore retail locations are fully equipped for the production of hydraulic hoses and are certified by the "ParkerStore Hose Certification Workshop."

Exceptional order for CZ LOKO

Until 2013, Chvalis supplied hydraulic systems only for auxiliary drives, such as compressor drives for compressed air production; the drive for the combustion engine cooling fans and the electric alternator drive for the production of electric motors. In 2013, the company received a call for a comprehensive design and solution for the supply of a complete hydraulic traction drive, including auxiliary drives for 35 units of MUV series 74.02 001-035 series, for CZ LOKO, the manufacturer and supplier of Czech Railways - SŽDC.

Innovative open hydraulic system

Chvalis has developed a technical solution for its own drive - an unconventional way of using its own innovative, open-circuit hydraulic system instead of competing with a preferred closed circuit. The system, while technically more demanding, precisely and comfortably addresses all the requirements of all traction control conditions controlled by the parent electronic control system of the vehicle. In addition, the circuit allows for hydraulic braking, which was used for the cruise control system. This makes the work of the drivers more efficient and saves the cost of the vehicle operators, reducing the wear of the brake discs of the standard pneumatic braking system of the vehicle. The standard brake is used most of the operating time, using this circuit for braking, until the vehicle stops.

Hydraulic system Chvalis

Hydraulic circuits are built using the Parker product portfolio, including Ermeto E02 pipe systems and hose systems from certified hoses for rolling stock. These hydraulic circuits, mainly PV-plus piston control pumps in conjunction with the F11, F12, F1, F2, and F14 hydraulic motors of the V14 series, deliver a minimum fault, provide high reliability and long service life.

Thanks to previous experience with the 35-piece MUV74.02 series, Chvalis was asked by CZ LOKO's customer for the design and delivery of a complete hydraulic traction drive and auxiliary drives for a new series of 50 MUV 75.00 Universal Motor Vehicles.

This new unit had the requirement to maintain the same hydraulic traction drive that has proven itself in the past series. In addition, the requirement to increase the hydraulic proportional brake power and increase the number of auxiliary hydraulic circuits has been accepted: hydraulic hand, grass mower, hydraulically independent trolley tipping system, and suspension lock.

After the demanding testing of the first prototype in December 2017, the production of a 50-piece series of cars was launched in January 2018, again using the innovative Chvalis hydraulic system with proven hydraulic components from Parker.

Students in practical training in the authorized education centre in the firm CHVALIS Ltd - Hoštka

In March 2010 were the students from field Mechanic - electronic in the practical work on the simulator Parker in authorized education centre in the firm CHVALIS Ltd in Hoštka. It is a pneumatic and hydraulic control and regulation systems. This topic was theoretically mastered by students in the third year of study.

Students can to see the individual components in the cut, they can to touch them. They implement the practical involvement of the various roles, including repairs to the simulated fault. Manager of Training Centre, Mr. Ivan Oliva was the students' knowledge pleasantly surprised, time limits for each task were significantly shortened.
