EagleLIFT provides railroad restoration and railroad ballast repair in California and Nevada. A Class “A” general contractor with over 20 years of experience in providing repair and stabilization solutions for spoiled and compromised railroad ballasts. Utilizing the polymer injection process, we can revitalize existing railroad ballasts by binding the existing railroad base aggregate, thereby increasing its weight-bearing capacity and mitigating future settlement.
The process works by injecting the high-density, structural polyurethane into the base soils through 3/4” metal rods. Once injected, the 2-part polymer moves throughout the aggregate and ballasts and then begins to expand and bind the aggregate together into a weight-bearing monolith. The result is a substantially improved ballast, even in some of the worst of circumstances.
The EagleLIFT Approach
Here at EagleLIFT, we have the capability to engineer and design different injection patterns, depths, and sequencing to study:
- Decreases in vertical deformation; pressure on sub-ballast & subgrade
- Resistance to heavy axle loads
- Mitigate settlement & geometry problems
Railroad Ballast Stabilization Results
Enhanced Freight Capacity: Fouled ballast experienced favorable increases in compressive and flexural strength
Remediate Fouled Ballast: Fatigued life cycle improves exponentially with areas of lower modulus had an inconsequential impact
