    Abstract

    The methods used in the production of erosion control stone depend on the size and quantity of the product required. Discussed in this paper are the blasting and various sizing methods used with a detailed description of a high volume production plant. The quality control that needs to be performed both before and after production is reviewed and suggestions made for reducing field problems.
