Ballast Crushing Equipment in Kenya

Good quality track ballast is made of crushed natural rock with particles between 28 mm and 50 mm in diameter; a high proportion of particles finer than this will reduce its drainage properties, and a high proportion of larger particles result in the load on the ties being distributed improperly.

Ballast is produced from many types of crushed stone such as limestone, granite, dolomite, traprock, sandstone, quartzite, marble, talc etc. In ballast production line, the raw materials will be first extracted. Techniques used for extraction vary with the nature and location of the deposit. Processing operations involved includes crushing, screening, size classification, material handling and storage operations.

Ballast Crushing Equipment

Quarried stone for ballast production normally is conveyed to the crushing plant by truck and is dumped into a bin. The feeder or screens separate large boulders from finer rocks that do not require primary crushing. Since ballast materials requires particle size about 28 mm and 50 mm in diameter. It generally needs to be crushed in primary and secodary crushing.

Jaw crusher, impact crusher, hammer crusher or gyratory crushers are usually used for primary size reduction. The undersize material are discharged onto a belt conveyor and usually are conveyed to a surge pile for temporary storage or are sold as coarse aggregates. Cone crushers and impact crushers are commonly used for secondary crushing.

With know-how technology, we developed comprehensive range of ballast crushing equipment in Kenya for different aplications, from limestone to taconite, from ballast production to manufactured sand, and from small portable plants to large crushing production line, Zenith crushing plant will provide unbeatable performance in secondary, tertiary, and quaternary applications.
