Rocks and minerals used in industrial products can be recycled. Three of the most common types of aggregate are sand, gravel, and recycled concrete. Concrete aggregate is made by crushing concrete from demolished buildings, highways, and other structures, or from a mixture of water, aggregate and gravel. At ReAgg, we provide onsite crushing services to create aggregate from recycled concrete, and we also supply aggregate products that include sand, gravel, and other product types.
Process of Crushing Stone
The procedure of crushing the stone has three stages. The first stage is breaking down the stone to small sizes. The second stage is crushing down the sizable stones to suit a specific purpose. On the third stage, the stones are screened for finished products.
Sand and gravel are the most common minerals used in creating concrete. Sand and gravel are the main component in recycled aggregate products in Baltimore.
Crushing Recycled Concrete Aggregate
ReAgg can crush concrete to many different sizes, as needed, according to your specifications. The materials are crushed and processed to remove foreign materials, such as metal and steel. The materials are then screened to select the best sizes, according to the specifications for the product size. The crushed stones are reused in filling road base.
There are two ways to recycle concrete aggregate. The first approach is to have ReAgg haul the debris to our recycling facility where they will be crushed and screened. The second approach ReAgg can provide is onsite crushing, where we crush the concrete debris at the demolition site.
