Modern washing solutions for rolling stock

The cleanliness of rolling stock has a huge impact on the image of the carrier. Difficult operating conditions cause that keeping rolling stock clean becomes a challenge.
SULTOF – a leading manufacturer of specialized washing equipment, offers three types of washes for cleaning various rail rolling stock vehicles.
Depending on the needs, these washes can be combined in one installation, as well as modified to better adapt to specific needs.
Stationary, semi-stationary and drive-through washing is possible.
SULTOF also undertakes the implementation of unusual projects, tailored to the individual needs of the User.

SULTOF offers three models of washes for washing different types of rolling stock:

Gantry wash AmTrak
Half-gantry wash PROTEUS
Drive-through wash THOR
Bogie washer


Depending on your needs, these washes can be combined within a single installation, or modified to better suit your specific needs.

The construction of the wash, as standard, is made of high-grade stainless steel.

SULTOF - THOR quick drive-through wash
This device is designed for quick vehicle washing. The washed vehicle passes through
a set of modules carrying out subsequent washing processes.

Half-gantry wash SULTOF - PROTEUS

This wash consists of two (or more) half-gantries moving along a standing vehicle on both sides.
Each half-gantry is equipped with one vertical brush for washing the side of a vehicle and one short horizontal brush for washing front, back and roof edges.

SULTOF - AmTrak portal wash
The construction of the wash allows its use wherever there is no overhead catenary line, e.g. for washing railbuses and subway cars.

Optionally, in case of all the above-described wash models, a set of drying blowers may be installed at the exit to.

All washes also cooperate with automatic vehicle identification systems which enable an automatic selection of a washing programme.

Washer for rail bogie

In 2021, to the wide range of products offered by Sultof, designed for washing rail vehicles, there was added washing station for bogie of trains, trams and subway, as well as small elements placed on service carts.

Washing system consists of a selfpropelled gantry equipped with rotators with high pressure jets washing the bogie and a underchassis washing oscillation module.

In addition, both on the portal and on the chassis washing module there are nozzles that apply a special chemical agent.

The device is fully made of stainless steel.

The device is controlled by plc controller. The operator panel with a large color touch screen can be use for comunication and programing. It is possible to configure washing programs depending on the type of bogi, degree of dirty etc.

Clean or circulated, heated or cold water can be used for washing process.

Washing process takes place in a special cabin. The bogies are rolled in manually or by means of a hoist.

Near the cabin there are technical facilities with pumps, filters, tanks and other accompanying equipment.

The parameters of the bogie washer can be adapted to individual customer requirements or needs.

This applies in particular to: types of nozzles, pressure and pump capacity, avoiding sensitive zones during washing, etc.

Our advantage is also an experienced team of constructors and automatic engineers. We are able to "tailor" a wash equipment according to particular needs, as well as to reprogram a device when a new rolling stock appears.
