up in layers of uniform thickness. Do not build up the stockpiles in high cones or allow them to run down slopes
because this causes segregation. Do not allow aggregate to fall freely from the end of a conveyor belt either. To
minimize segregation, remove aggregates from stockpiles in horizontal layers. When you are using batching
equipment and storing some aggregate in bins, load the bins by allowing the aggregate to fall vertically over the
outlet. Chuting the materials at an angle against the side of the bin causes particle segregation.
