Red River Manitoba

Product: LUD & Spherical Bearings
Location: Manitoba, Canada
News: The Red River valley of Manitoba is subject to flooding and the Canadian Pacific railway found it necessary to build bridges in certain locations. Due to the power of new train engines, the areas where the bridges are permitted to move due to thermal expansion and contraction, were equipped with lock up devices, so that when these engine forces are transmitted to the bridge the bridge can resist these forces. Therefore all sliding spherical bearings are equipped with TechStar LUDs.
