Title: Sand and Gravel Washing Plants
Author(s): Raymond W. Dull
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 124-134
Abstract:There has been a very marked change, during the last few years, in preparing materials for concrete purposes. We seldom see the old obsolete method of sending a team out to a river bank, or gavel pit, for a load of gravel, which is dumped in the aggregate, regardless of size, proportion or cleanliness. We now see a modern factory for handling, sizing and washing the materials, which decreases the cost of handling, prepares it for different kinds of uses, and best of all, makes it suitable for the purpose.
