Title: BALLAST-SWEEPING SYSTEM FOR RECEIVING AND DISTRIBUTING BALLAST SITUATED ON A TRACK
Abstract:
A ballast-sweeping system (1) provided for receiving and distributing ballast situated on a track comprises a sweeping brush (3) which can be rotated about an axis of rotation (2), a ballast conveyor belt (5) arranged upstream with respect to a brush direction of rotation (4), and a ballast guide plate (7) which is positioned between the sweeping brush (3) and ballast conveyor belt (5) and intended for transferring the ballast onto the ballast conveyor belt (5). A length of the ballast conveyor belt (5) that is delimited by two deflection ends (8) is designed to be shorter than a length of the sweeping brush (3) that extends in the axis of rotation (2). In addition, the ballast conveyor belt (5) is designed so as to be displaceable in the transporting direction (6) relative to the sweeping brush (3) by means of a drive (10). Therefore, optimized ballast distribution in tamping zones (15) of the track (9) is possible.
