Carbon Collectors - Pantograph Carbons

 Morgan Advanced Materials is the leading supplier of pantograph carbon collectors within the African market. 

Our range of products includes metallised and plain carbon strips, designed for optimum life, whilst maintaining overhead cable conditions.
 
The advantages of carbon in current collection
 
Carbon exhibits many operational and financial advantages over metallic materials as a linear current collector, and the benefits to user systems are becoming increasingly apparent as more of the world’s railway, third rail and tram systems change to carbon. Carbon’s lower mass and selflubricating ability to deposit a protective patina on the collector wire or rail gives major benefits that cannot be matched by any other collector material.
 
Overhead current collection
  • On pantograph systems, the advantages of carbon include:
  • Longer collector strip life, lower maintenance costs and less frequent replacement
  • Longer wire life, giving significant reductions in the cost of maintenance for the overhead system
  • Reduced mass for better current collection
  • Carbon’s inert qualities, which ensure that carbon will not weld to the conductor wire, even after long periods of static current loading.
  • The ability to operate at high speeds up to and in excess of 240km per hour.
  • The virtual elimination of electrical interference to telecommunications and signal circuits
  • Negligible audible noise between rubbing surfaces.
