Traction Sanding Systems -
IBEG has been developing and delivering pneumatic sanding systems for rail vehicles since 1985. More than 20,000 systems are currently in use worldwide. IBEG can therefore, quite rightly, claim the title of the biggest systems supplier worldwide.

IBEG products are in use all over the world and must therefore be able to operate at full capacity with little or no maintenance required.

IBEG has designed traction sanding systems for placement within LRV wall cavities, under seats, within support columns, and under the vehicle.

As a total solution provider, IBEG GmbH has introduced the “missing link” in its traction sanding systems; the new IBEG Mobile Sand Filling System. The filling process for the traction sand system can now be carried out in a short period of time, automatically, dust-free, under no pressure and to a capacity of 95%. It can be configured for mobile use on wheels, as a feeder, or interfaced as a floor-conveyor system.

The IBEG system is easily operated by one person. All processes, from air preparation through actual sand filling are automatic.

The versatile sand filling nozzle can be moved during loading assuring a maximum fill at all times.
