Ballast cleaning work is essential to maintain track availability. Over time, the track bed is exposed to a variety of contaminants – such as brake dust, leaves or even larger objects. The dryness of the track ballast is at risk due to the lack of water permeability.
In order to remove these impurities from the track and bedding, HERING uses a ZWEIWEG two-way trackbed cleaning machine. This makes it possible to work on both rail and road. The special suction technology also allows dirt and objects to be sucked away without loosening ballast.
