The company has successfully manufactured 250 Wagons, as per Contract Terms maintaining cost, quality &amp; time and these wagons are running successfully on Railway track. 5. Designed By: RITES Ltd. Developed By: Research Design &amp; Standard Organisation. (Ministry of Railways) Manufactured By: Braithwaite &amp; Co. Ltd. (A Govt. of India Undertaking) Ministry of Railways. 6. HYDRAULIC TEST OF BARREL The barrel complete with internal fittings including Master Valve &amp; Bottom discharge Valve after being mounted on the under frame shall be tested HYDROSTATICALLY to pressure 2.8 Kg / cm. sq. against leakage of longitudinal and circumferential weld seams of Barrel along with fitted valves. The pressure is maintained for 30 Minutes (min.). 7. A BREAK THROUGH TECHNOLOGY The newly designed tank barrel is inclined at 1 deg towards discharge points to facilitate easy flow of POL Products. 8. The wagon is manufactured from: SAILMA 350 IS: 8500 Fe 570B These high strength micro alloyed steels have higher yield strength, higher notch toughness, good fatigue properties, excellent weld ability and good formability. 9. HUCK BOLT FASTENING SYSTEM Heavy duty applications demand tough, reliable fasteners. For application ranging from RAIL WAGON to MINING EQUIPMENT, HUCK BOLT fastening system offers superior vibration resistance and overall durability. Low cost fastening system. Extraordinarily low installation time. Safe, Worker friendly &amp; above all Environment Friendly. 10.
