Technology Through Time

Separation Plant

Bituminous Sand Plant, Dunvegan Yards, Edmonton, 1925.A bituminous sand separation plant was designed, constructed, and operated under the immediate charge of W. G. Jewitt. The design was based on that of the small plant successfully operated the previous year at the University. The old plant could treat half a ton of sand per hour for short periods, while the new plant was designed for steady operation and to treat one tonne per hour. The site selected was the Dunvegan Yards in Edmonton.
