Chinese Steel Rails Overview

steel rails from china


Steel rail, we also called the railway track, it is crucial to the steel railing system. As a rail component of the railway system, steel rail guides the train forward and bears the enormous pressure. Meanwhile, the steel rails convey the pressure to the railway sleepers. So steel rails play a big role in the railway system and the quality of the steel rails is much important.

Besides, steel rails have another crucial function. The steel rails provide a smooth and less resistance surface for the vehicles that ensure the safe running.


Recently, China consumed 1-1.5 million tons steel rails every year. And the related apartments estimate that China steel rails consumption will reach the 2 million tons. So, whatever the technology or the quality, China formed its own system gradually in term of the steel rails manufacture. During the long-time development of the China steel rails, China steel rails have acquired the praise. China steel rails have been exported to many countries like America, India, and Canada and so on.

As a manufacturer of rail components from China, AGICO Rail would like to introduce the China steel rails for you! For different conditions, we should choose the suitable steel rails. Steel rails have many types and standard to choose. 

Steel rail profile

Steel rail can be divided into three basic types based on the steel rails weight. They are light rails, heavy rails and crane rails. How to distinguish light rail and heavy rail? For example, 22 kg light rail that refers to the weight per meter.
22kg light rail is the most common light rail. Meanwhile, it is our hot sale products. In term of the heavy rails, the typical type is 60kg rail and Qu70 crane rail. 

Light rails

Light rail is supported for the light-weight trend tramcar, light-rail train and the monorail train. Due to the limited busload and simple infrastructure, heavy rails are not suited for the ultimate system. Because the heavy steel rails will increase the construction budget. That is the essential difference between light rail and heavy rails.

The main material of the light rail is the Q235B and the Q55 steel. Q235B has good elongation, castability and tenacity so that it has better performance as railway tracks.

Chinese light rail is manufactured according to the GB11264-89. The GB11264-89 standard defines the dimension, appearance, weight of the light rails. China Quality and Technology Supervision Bureau protocols this standard and publishes it in 1989. As a railway components manufacturer, AGICO Rail provides the light rail, either. There are the details of the light rail.

Heavy rails

Heavy rails are most common in our daily life. The railway track refers to the heavy rails in a large degree. The heavy rail refers to the weight is more than 60kg per meter. The common heavy rail size is 5okg rail, 60kg rail and the 75kg rail. The heavy rail has a bigger fracture surface than the light rails, so the heavy rails can bear much more pressure. There are technology parameters of the heavy rails. AGICO Rail supports various heavy rails like 60kg rails, 75kg rails. Besides, our products are compliant with the GB2585-2007.

Crane rails

The other kind of heavy rail is the crane rail. QU70 rail and QU80 rail are the common crane rails size. Our crane rails up to the YB/T5055-93 standard.
