Drawgear Springs

Miner TecsPak (Thermoplastic Elastomer Compression Spring PAcKage) drawgear springs require no maintenance or adjustments after installation. They resist exposure to dirt and chemicals including lubricants, diesel fuel, gasoline, hydraulic fluids and most solvents that would seriously damage or destroy rubber or urethane, even through temperature fluctuations ranging from –40° C to + 50° C.

Designed to comply with EN-15551 and EN-15566, TecsPak drawgear springs have been rail-tested throughout Europe on freight wagon and passenger coach applications for nearly 30 years.
