Ballast cleaning/ full excavation

MFS 100

Material conveyor and hopper unit
MFS 100 and MFS 100 S

The material conveyor and hopper wagon MFS 100 and MFS 100 S are used to transport ballast, spoil and FPL during ballast cleaning and formation rehabilitation. Their main advantage is the continuous conveying, storage and unloading process. They also realise metered unloading onto the adjacent track (construction track).

Functional characteristics
  • Assembly of any number of MFS wagons to form a train with the respective required storage capacity
  • Start of the filling process at the front wagon (in working direction), the following wagons act as a conveyor line
  • Simultaneous emptying of all MFS wagons by swivelling out the unloading belts
  • Metered unloading to the adjacent track possible (construction track)
  • New ballast added in combination with the RM 900 S and RPM-RS-900
  • FPL added in combination with the RPM-RS-900
  • Ballast spreaded evenly by means of the MFS 100 S ballast spreader (transports ballast from the front conveyor belt for distribution into the four hydraulically adjustable ballast chutes and flaps)
