Train Wash Pumps

Industrial Duty Pumps & Accessories for Train Wash Applications



With their large size trains present unique challenges to keep them clean. From light rail to heavy rail locomotives, train wash systems are required to keep them clean. A clean train portrays a company brand, improves ridership and is easier to maintain.

Types of Train Washes:

  • Roll Though – Train drives through a fixed wash system at low speed
  • Static – Train is parked and washing equipment moves over the train
  • Manual – Train is parked and pressure washed using a central pump that produces enough flow for at least 4 operators

Train Washing is necessary to clean off:

  • Solids
  • Dust
  • Ice
  • Grease and Oils
  • Sand, Dirt, and Mud
  • Anything else affecting equipment operation and safety
