Construction aggregates are produced from naturally occurring mineral deposits, including solid rock formations such as limestone and granite, and from unconsolidated deposits of sand and gravel. The most common structural uses of construction aggregates include the coarse and fine mineral constituents in Portland cement concrete and asphalt. Aggregates are used for road base and unbound road surfacing, as well as produced for their chemical qualities in many industrial mineral uses. Construction aggregates are also produced as byproducts from other manufacturing processes such as steel mill slag.
McLanahan equipment can be used in all steps of the production of construction aggregates, which includes liberating the mineral from its native state and processing it for its intended use.
