Localized Ballast Surveying. BallastSaver surveys calculate ballast deficiencies in the cribs, shoulders and side slopes of the ballast section. It even takes into account increased shoulder requirements in curves. That improves the accuracy and efficiency of ballast placement and allows you to minimize the amount of ballast you need to purchase.
Ballast Program System Prioritization. Using performance-based weighting factors, BallastSaver can prioritize your ballast needs to address vertical, lateral and longitudinal track performance requirements. Easily create 10- to 20-mile, section-based ballast programs that take into account curvature, high-buckle risk locations, high-speed track and much more.
Ballast End of Tie Defects. Missing ballast at the end of ties is a particularly problematic situation that can cause lateral stability issues. BallastSaver uses a 20-foot rolling average to identify critical areas and flags them with coordinates to expedite repairs.
