Recycled aggregates can be utilized in many ways to use previously unused materials, mainly as a filler when in the process of making concrete. Other primary uses include road base when crushed and recycled, as well as on road surfaces, and as asphalt-concrete.
The recycled aggregate is made by crushing concrete and asphalt, as well as raw materials such as hard rock, other aggregates, and sedimentary rock minerals which have been unused in other projects to reclaim the aggregates contained within. This process ensures that no construction materials are going to waste and is carefully carried out in three separate steps to ensure only the best quality materials are recycled.
Step One: The Primary Crushing Stage
Raw materials and stone rubble are sent to a processing plant, through a charging hopper attached to a feeder, and fed into the main crusher and crushed down into average-sized pieces.
Step Two: The Secondary Crushing Stage
Once the materials have been initially crushed down into smaller pieces, it’s fed by a conveyer belt into the secondary crusher and crushed down into even smaller pieces.
Final Step: Screening
Once all materials have been through the crushers, it is fed through a screen that has openings of many varying sizes. Each size is then sorted and separated into its own grouping.
