What is the different of ASEC30 rail and GB11264 standard 15kg rail?

GB11264 standard 15 kg/m steel rail is manufactured and used in accordance with the following requirements:

1. Steel rail material: The material of 15 kg/m steel rail has Q235 and 55Q, they are different mechanical properties and different cost.

2. Dimensional and geometric requirements: The 15 kg/m steel rail should comply with the geometric dimensions specified in the standard, including rail bottom width 79mm, rail height 79mm, rail waist width 8.33, head width 42.86mm.

3. Physical properties: The physical properties of a 15 kg/m steel rail, including bending strength, elastic modulus, hardness, and other indicators, should meet the requirements specified in the standard.

4. Surface quality: The surface of the steel rail should be flat and smooth, without obvious defects such as dents and cracks, to ensure the normal operation and safety of the train.

5. Steel rail connection: The 15 kg/m steel rail is connected using a specific connection method to ensure a secure connection, so that the steel rail will not experience misalignment or derailment when the train passes by.

6. Use and Maintenance: The 15 kg/m steel rail should be installed and maintained in accordance with standard requirements, including inspection, repair, and replacement of the rail to ensure its service life and safety performance.

The usage of this rail includes:

1. Light Rail Transit (LRT): It can be used for urban transportation systems, such as light rail lines or trams, which operate within cities or suburban areas. The 15 kg/m rail provides a stable track structure for these light rail vehicles.

2. Industrial and Mining Railways: In certain industrial sectors or mining operations, where there is a need for transportation of materials or equipment within limited areas, the 15 kg/m rail may be utilized for constructing internal rail networks.

3. Tourist or Heritage Railways: These types of railways, often found in tourist destinations or heritage sites, require smaller and lighter rails. The 15 kg/m rail can be employed to create tracks for scenic trains or vintage locomotives.

The 15 kg/m steel rail can be used in various countries worldwide, particularly in countries that have light-duty railway systems or tram networks. Its usage is not limited to any specific country.

The 15 kg/m steel rail is named ASCE30 rail in North America, they are same profile, same material, only different name.

The ASCE 30 rail, also known as the ASCE 30 lb/yd rail, is a specific type of rail commonly used in North America, particularly in the United States and Canada.

Here are some key points about the ASCE 30 rail:

1. Designation: ASCE 30 stands is for the American Society of Civil Engineers. The weight of rail is 30 pounds per yard.

2. Usage: The ASCE 30 rail is often utilized in light-duty applications, such as industrial spurs, yard tracks, sidings, and some short-line railroads.

3. Dimensions: The ASCE 30 rail has specific dimensions, including the base width 79mm, head width 42.86mm, and overall height 79mm, web thickness 8.33mm.

4. Compatibility: The ASCE 30 rail is compatible with other rail components, including rail connectors, rail fasteners, and track equipment that are designed for this particular rail profile.

Even they are different name and different standard, but all be same goods, only need pay attention the material and length, can be used each other.
