Applications

  • Aggregates

    There are two main classes of aggregates: natural and manufactured. Deleterious material needs to be removed from both classes of aggregates. Processing these materials typically requires various steps including reduction and sizing and also may include dewatering and sorting. Producers can use a variety of crushing, screening, dewatering and conveying equipment to meet their desired specifications.

    • Concrete Recycling

      Concrete is one of the most recycled materials in the world that can be repurposed several times over. Once the existing concrete is demolished or torn up, it needs to be processed for accurate shaping and sizing using a crusher and screen.

        • Roadtec SX-6 Soil Stabilization

          Soil Stabilization

          Soil Stabilization is essential when subgrade soils lack sufficient strength to support new pavements and foundations. The existing material is milled, and additives may be integrated to increase bearing capacity.  The enhanced material is graded and compacted to provide a superior quality base for a new road or foundation.
