Ballast processing operations may include crushing, screening, size classification, material handling and storage operations. Crushing is the integral stage in ballast production aplication. The choice of crusher depends on the type and amount of material to be crushed. Gyratory and jaw crushers represent the bulk of primary crushers used at mining operations today, although some operations use roll impact crushers, low-speed roll sizers and feeder breakers. Cone crushers remain the most popular for fine crushing applications, although some mines use vertical impact crushers for tertiary and quaternary crushing.

High Quality Ballast
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. Angular stones are preferable to naturally rounded ones, as angular stones interlock with each other, inhibiting track movement. Soft materials such as limestone are not particularly suitable, as they tend to degrade under load when wet, causing deterioration of the line; granite, although expensive, is one of the best materials in this regard.
