A Quick Look at Multistage Processing for the Production of Recycled Aggregate

Silica SandA Quick Look at Multistage Processing for the Production of Recycled Aggregate 

Crushed stone and other materials to create aggregates for the production of new, high-performance concrete is one of the common concepts of sustainable development. This is because it allows for extreme reduction in the volume of materials disposed of in landfills. Changes in gradation, maximum size, unit weight, and moisture content can all alter the character and performance of your concrete mix. However, contractors should also consider how switching from coarse aggregate can strengthen and/or lengthen the durability of mortar.

Important Crushed Stone Specifications to Remember
