Hamilton Aggregates was founded in 2006 by Edward and Genia Hamilton; and would establish and managing the only family owned quarry in Conway County, Arkansas by 2007. Within a short seven year period the Hamilton’s would expand from a single quarry in Clinton to three operational quarries across North Central Arkansas. This expansion was not by mistake. Edward had developed a 20 year plan from the outset, which included the acquisition of more equipment to supply the varying and growing demand. In addition to recycling concrete and crushing aggregates at three separate quarries across North Central Arkansas Hamilton also has a portable plant and can provide custom crushing of specific material on site.
The creation of aggregates is a lengthy process that begins when the rock is fractured by drilling and blasting. Once blasted it is loaded into haul trucks that transports the material to the processing operation. Processing operations include crushing, screening, material handling and storage operations. Quarried stone is delivered to the processing plant by truck and is dumped into a vibrating hopper feeder. The feeder separates large boulders from finer rocks that do not require primary crushing, this reducing the load to the primary crusher. The crusher product is discharged onto a belt conveyor and conveyed to an inclined vibrating screed called a scalping screen. This unit separates over sized rock form the smaller stone. The undersized material from the processing screen is considered to be a product stream and is transported to a storage pile. The stone that is too large to pass through the top deck of the scalping screen is processed in the secondary crusher. The output from the secondary crusher and the troughs are transported by conveyor to a sizing screen. Various product streams with different size gradations and are separated in the screening operation. At this point the products are transported to the finished products area.
