Here’s a brief overview of our crushing process:
Sand and gravel are mined from pits of quartz-rich sand and sandstone. Our methods usually depend on the degree of hardness of the rock. Prior to processing the rock, we use explosives to blast the rock if necessary. The material may need to be crushed several times, depending on cementation. Impact mills, Gyratory crushers, jaw crushers, roll crushers and mills are all used for crushing.
After the rock is mined, it is transported to our processing plant. During the crushing process, the material is ground further using different types of mills such as: smooth rolls, media mills, hammer mills or jet mills for an initial screening. After the rock is processed during the initial phase, some of the sand may be saved and used as construction sand.
Our products have a variety of applications and are used in many types of residential and commercial products. We produce 4 main blends:
We are 1 of only 3 companies who distribute California Gold Decomposed Granite in Southern California. For more information on our products, see our products page.
Contact us when you are ready to receive your shipment and we will schedule your delivery. Our dispatcher will give your order to one of our drivers to deliver. The driver will weigh the truck before loading the product. They will usually use a front end loader to load the gravel or rock and check the weight, to make sure it meets the Federal Highway Administration’s regulations. The Federal Highway Administration requires that a truck’s gross weight can’t exceed 80,000 lbs.
On smaller residential jobs, like gravel driveways or alleyways, we may also distribute the material after delivery. We’ll use one of our large dump trucks to distribute the gravel evenly as it is laid on the driveway. Then we use spreaders to even up areas with too much or too little gravel. If this is the first time gravel is being applied, we recommend that you cover the driveway with at least 3 to 4 inches of material.
