WAGNER Coal Coo Phone 986 Since 1915, when the Ideal Sand and Gravel company was started northeast of Mason City, this company has been servicing construction projects in Mason City and North Iowa with washed and screened sand and gravel, with an annual average output o£ 115,000 tons. The liighcst carload- ing for a single day was 103 50-ton care. The cornpany is incorporated; with Grant McGdwari, president; Wayne McGowan, vice president; Maud B. McGowan, secretary and treasurer; and C. E. Thomas, plant superintendent. * * * Recently steam coils were installed in the new truck bins and the company now furnishes tliawed ouC sand during winter months for construction work. There arc no frozen lumps or other obstacles that contractors encounter in using sand and sravel in the winter time. Besides these features the .Ideal Sand ana Gravel company also furnishes Its specially mixed black top--a cold asphalt patch material used to patch streets, driveways and highways. a * * A test road of this black top has been constructed from the highway to the plant. It has been constructed with a good gravel base and surfaced with black top. An average of 50 loads a day, each load approximating eight tons, passes over this test strip. The way the road has stood up for more than three years shows what may be accomplished with black top with the right kind of foundation under it. The black top is a sideline with the Ideal Sand and Gravel company, however, compared with the sand and gravel output. It is prepared largely for the convenience of cities for street repairs and surfacing. The company is known for its complete service on sand and gravel, as well as black top, when and where it is wanted. The raw material is loaded into bottom dump cars at the pit by Zy, yard buckets on boom drag lines. This is dumped Into a. hopper at the plant, from where it is taken, to a scalping screen on a 36 inch belt. Everything larger than 2 inches Is then crushed down to 2 inch size or smaller. From the crushers the material is taken to the washing and screening plant on a conveyor belt and is washed by 3,600 gallons of water per minute, automatically sprayed through it as it is screened. * $ £ Gravel is screened into four sizes and sand into two sizes. This is remixed when loaded from the bins to meet any specifications that might be required. Sand and gravel is shipped in both carloads and trucks and orders are taken for any amount from one ton to trainloads. z ·? The Ideal Sand and Gravel plant and pits cover approximately a section of land. The trade area for sand and gravel covers a radius of approximately 50 miles while black top is delivered as far west as Sioux City. The company owns approximately 3 miles of standard gauge trackage and does all of its own switching and hauling of dump cars from the pit with. 40 ton steam locomotives. * » * Aside from the locomotives and steam shovels, the remainder of ths plant is electrified. More water is pumped through sand from the plant's own reservoirs in one day than is used by the city of Mason City. Through the running season 35 persons arc employed at the plant. Some of this force is dropped during the winter months when repairs are in progress, but last winter the largest force since the plant was started was kept employed in anticipation of a heavy season ahead.
