Avoids Ballast Contamination

Avoids Ballast Contamination

Dusting from some products, especially coal, can damage the rail corridor’s ballast. This damage can result in unstable track, necessitating speed restrictions, and in some cases has resulted in derailments. With Ecofab railcar covers eliminating ballast contamination, less ballast cleaning equipment is required, resulting in major savings. In addition, reduction in ballast cleaning also results in fewer associated track closures and speed restrictions.
