PIE Mechanical Type Wheel Diameter Gauge is applicable for open wheel set. It can be operated by a single person and gives direct reading on a finely marked scale. All wheel contact pats are made from hard alloy steel. Least count is 1.0 mm
Wheel Diameter Gauges
The wheel diameter gauge is used for accurate measurement of rolling stock wheels. Since rolling stock wheels operate rigid on the axle, the diameter needs to be constant right through to the bottom. In the absence of constant measurement, the wheels stand the threat of derailment, especially on curves.
Other benefits would include superior ride quality, detection of wear and tear, improved maintenance, and better accuracy by elimination of manual measurements.
The Wheel Diameter Gauge is mechanical and used for diameter measurements of open wheel sets. Its ease of operation and functionality makes it possible to be operated by a single person to obtain accurate measurements with a lease count of 1.0 mm. The reading is obtained directly on a finely calibrated scale. Scope for error is reduced since all contact parts are manufactured with hard alloy steel.
