Aggregates, Sand & Gravel

There are construction materials in all buildings, roads, footpaths and bridges. Few of us have considered what these materials are, where they came from or how they've been processed. This useful tool from WRAP (Waste & Resources Action Programme) provides more information on the uses of recycled aggregates.

Aggregain

WRAP 2013

The majority of our built environment is formed from raw materials won from the earth by the extractive industries, and in order to produce a usable end-product, the rock or sand and gravel has to be crushed and screened into various size categories. 

Powerscreen produces a comprehensive range of crushing and screening equipment, including varying sizes of tracked jaw, cone and impact crushers; tracked heavy duty and highly productive incline, horizontal and screens.

Powerscreen tracked crushers and screens are designed to take raw feed and reduce them to usable aggregates sizes. The versatility of having a fully mobile tracked crusher or screen allows the customer to process raw materials into finished aggregate quickly and efficiently. In turn, this helps keep the operating costs low by reducing the amount of raw material movement, keeping transportation and fuel costs to a minimum. As well as saving on costs, it also reduces the carbon footprint, making the Powerscreen range of equipment environmentally friendly.

In the world that we live in, without raw materials being processed efficiently into usable aggregates by equipment such as the range provided by Powerscreen, we would not be able to build houses, hospitals, schools, factories and roads.
