(D.E. Jervis. 2005)NEW TITLEChapters in this handbook cover the basic principles of mixing and applications of bituminous materials, the design, erection and operation of asphalt (coating) plant including important aspects of safety and environmental control
(Ken Rothery & Steven Mellor 2007 pp268)The first edition of this handbook, 'An Introduction to Crushing and Screening', written by Steve Mellor, has been thoroughly revised by Ken Rothery, a senior engineer who worked for one of the major aggregate producers for many years. Ken has used his experience of designing and commissioning crushing and screening plant to comprehensively review, up-date and extend the introductory text.All of the latest technical innovations are described and the very important issues of health and safety in the working environment of a processing plant are fully addressed and up-dated to the date of publication. Much more information is given upon the performance, capacity and maintenance of crushing and screening equipment and advise is given upon obtaining full utilisation of processing plant and identifying faults. Finally, a new chapter is devoted to 'recycled aggregates'.
(Edited by Dr MR Smith & Dr MS Watkins. 2007)This completely new title was produced during 2004 in response to the increasing concern of the general public over the potential environmental impacts of the quarrying industry and to assist the operating companies in mitigating these impacts and creating good relations with the local community.The handbook comprises fourteen chapters, each written by an expert(s) in his/her field, which cover all the potential environmental impacts in terms of causes, science, mitigation, sources of guidance and advice and relevant legislation.The comprehensive nature of the handbook is indicated by the titles of the chapters which are; Environmental Management Systems; The Protection and Management of Water Resources; Air Quality; Impacts, Monitoring and Controls; Traffic; Identification, Assessment and Mitigation of Visual Impacts due to Quarrying; Environmental effects of Quarry Blasting; Environmental Noise; Biodiversity; Geological Conservation; Waste Management; Energy Management; Archaeology; Contaminated Land and Recycling - Aggregates from a Sustainable Source.The handbook was thoroughly revised and reprinted as the second edition in 2007.
(Jan Cordon & Ian Christie. 2010)NEW TITLEGood Blasting does not just happen it is the result of a good blast design professionally executed and it is hoped that this short handbook will provide some direction and advice in achieving that end.
(E. Darlow 2007 pp328)The first edition of this book, published in 1991, was written by Trevor King who was involved in quarry management before joining the Mines and Quarries Inspectorate where he became Senior Inspector of Quarries.Since 1991 the legislation related to quarrying has changed significantly with the introduction of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations and the Quarry Regulations 1999 amongst others. Thus, the book was completely rewritten by Eric Darlow who, at his retirement, was Head of HM Inspectorate of Quarries. By 2007, changes and new legislation required that the textbook be revised again to include, for example, new legislations on noise, working at heights, vibration and corporate manslaughter.Legislation upon occupational health and safety applies in all sectors of the quarrying industry often presenting managers and other responsible persons with difficulties of interpretation. Thus, the object of this book is to present the main points of the current legislation applying to quarries in a readable form starting with a brief history of legislation and enforcement.The present laws are then presented, not in date order, but according to the impact of the Act or Regulation upon the everyday working of a quarry beginning with those having the broadest scope for example the Health & Safety at Work etc Act and COSHH. The text continues by discussing more specific legislation such as RIDDOR, Confined Spaces Regulations and Pressure Systems concluding with a review of less frequently encountered laws and regulations industries associated with quarrying. The discussionof each piece of legislation makes reference to the relevant Approved Codes of Practice and Guidance where these exist and is illustrated by examples of court rulings. Numerous references to publications by the Health & Safety Executive and commercial publishers are provided for those needing more advice and guidance.
(Andrew Littler and Stephen Millburn. 2007. pp 212.)'Sand and Gravel Production' was first published in 1990 and proved to be the most popular handbook having sold nearly 2000 copies. It was revised and up-dated by Andy Littler, the original author, in 2001. The principal changes related to ripping, wet working by hydraulic excavators, scrubbers and log-washers, bucket wheel classifiers and de-slimers, control of classifiers and filter presses.In 2007, Stephen Millburn, national production manager with a major operating company, up-dated the cost data, extended the discussion of silt treatment and water recovery and added a chapter on 'manufactured sand'.
This video is intended to illustrate textbooks, technical talks and three teaching units of the University of Derby diploma course ( Loading at the face, Scrapers and Dumptrucks ) by providing moving images of the most common types of mobile equipment found in quarries producing aggregates. It should be useful for training students and newly recruited plant operators and trainee managers, for induction talks and informing visitors to quarries.Running time: 25 minutesFormat: VHS PAL and DVD
CRUSHING & SCREENING VIDEOA video which complements this handbook by providing moving images of all types of crushers and screens commonly found in quarries producing aggregates is also available.Running time: 12 minutesFormat: VHS PAL and DVD
