Randy Blanton, President of Chesapeake Materials, said, "Quarries can't specialize but Chesapeake does."
...
On this order, the rock must be 165 pounds (~75 kg) per cubic foot (~0,28m3) and have few seams-"not stuff that's easy to break," said Blanton. They could judge the stone at this quarry by color. Only the darker grays had a specific gravity high enough to ensure the bridge plan's engineering specifications were met.
Blanton's crews are experts at this. There will be no rejected shipments. "This is all our people do, 50 to 55 hours a week, every week," Blanton said. "They can tell you whether a rock weighs 4,000 pounds (~1.800 kg) or 5,000 pounds (2.267 kg) from 30 feet (~9,1 m) away. They know what is good rock or bad rock."
Tools of the trade
Blanton said the hammer, the hydraulic breaker, is the most important tool on site. "It's vital to everything-all we do is determined by the hammer."
All totaled, Chesapeake owns over a dozen hammers. For nearly 10 years all of their hammers have been Atlas Copco. "We've been approached to try other manufacturers' models, even allowed to try them for free. Some talk us into it and it usually ends up a disaster," Blanton said.
