Portuguese term or phrase: agregado britado **de granulometria extensa**
I think "agregado britado" = crushed aggregate; not sure about "de granulometria extensa"...
This is from a quality manual for a water system improvement project. The section is on the project's infrastructure, and the paragraph is as follows:
Equipamentos para a realização das actividades de terraplenagem (escavadoras hidráulicas de rastos, cilindros compactadores, dispositivos móveis de rega e camiões ), para o transporte e colocação de tubagens (escavadoras hidráulicas de rastos, rectro-escavadoras e gruas quando necessárias ), adstritos ao assentamento de tubagens (de corte, de manuseamento manual, de soldadura e os aparelhos associados aos testes hidráulicos ), para a pavimentação granular (motoniveladoras, cilindros compactadores, dispositivos móveis de rega e camiões de transpote de agregado britado de granulometria extensa) e betuminosa (espalhadoras, cilindros de rolos e compactadoes de pneus, camiões cisternas de rega, camiões para o transporte das misturas betuminosas a quente incluindo dispositivos de limpeza com vassoura agregada e fresadora ) e diversos necessários para a execução de travessias na intersecção com outros serviços, para a reabilitação de caixas de visita e de túneis visitáveis e para limpeza de galerias não visitáveis.

Thanks for any ideas!
