Our Part

At US Aggregates we pride ourselves on the quality and consistency of our long-term dolomitic reserves.

Our material has low chemical variability, uniform particle size, and low decrepitation rates, to maximize efficiencies in the glassmaking process. These characteristics contribute to fewer process adjustments while reducing both furnace fouling and energy costs.

Our Process

The unique characteristics of our reserves enables us to produce material that has a low chemical variability, uniform particle size, and low decrepitation rates.

The reserve has been drilled and the chemistry plotted to provide a model that guides the mining process and ensures consistent chemistry. During the mining process, as the material is being prepared for blasting, samples are checked to verify the chemistry with the model.

Our Quality System ensures that the purity of our product is maintained throughout the production process and helps us provide our customers with a consistent product.

As the material is crushed, dried and screened to the desired size, samples are taken at each phase of this process to insure that the material is meeting the desired specifications. Once the final product has been quality tested it is ready to be shipped to the customer.

Logistics On time is important to us.

We work with our customers to accommodate their schedule, factoring in delivery time by truck or rail. Our Quality System is used to ensure that the shipping containers are inspected prior to filling with our material. We work extended hours to ensure that the truck or trailer is loaded correctly and in a timely manner. Then we seal the container to ensure safe delivery to the customer.

Safety No shortcuts.

We educate our stakeholders on the importance of following best practices and procedures. We use root cause analysis and employee engagement to continuously improve our processes. Every customer is provided with Safety Data Sheets (SDS) that illustrate proper usage. All potential hazards are addressed and mitigated.
