C&H Gravel is another company owned by the same owner as Casey Stone. We produce our own sand and gravel for customers whether it's for commercial or non-commercial use.
How it Works: The dredge has a large cutter head on the front of it that is constantly spinning, digging, and sucking the material through the pipe lines connected. The dredge also has a shooter stream which is equivalent to what firemen use to put out fire. We use this to knock down the material from the side walls while the dredge is sucking up the material. The sand and gravel travels through the pipelines appoximately a 1/4mile into the top of our main plant. Once the sand and gravel reaches the top of the plant, it then comes down through classifiers/sand screws and screens to separate the sand and gravel. The material then goes through a series of screens to separate the different sizes of sand and gravel. After the material has been filtered through all of these steps it then falls onto a conveyor and distributes to their separate piles on the ground.
