Placing the ballast

The stored ballast is used to fill the tamping zones via discharging openings with hydraulic opening flaps. The positioning of the chutes immediately in front of the centre plough ensures a technologically correct sequence of operation. In the case of the BDS ballast management system, slewing distributor conveyor belts ensure exact placement of ballast in the track.
