Glass Recycling Equipment Price

The resultant crushed glass, exits the pulverizer through a discharge chute. Crushed glass is typically in the 3/8” minus size range with no sharp edges. Specific applications and sizes of crushed glass can be produced with the trommel screen as part of the system options. Non-glass contaminants such as paper and metal bits are separated from the glass aggregate and discharged into a separate container.

If the glass that can be recovered from the recycling stream was substituted for aggregate (like limestone for example), a well-run high volume glass recycling equipment has as much commercial value as a traditional limestone quarry.

Glass Crushing Plant

When designing glass crushing systems, some situations should be evaluated carefully in terms of potential supplies, demands, quality, and markets. The basic glass crushing process requires only a vibrating feeder and a crusher. According to different final products applications, many other types of equipment are required, such as jaw crusher for primary crushing, impact crusher and hammer crusher for secondary crushing, cone crusher for secondary and tertiary crushing. Some potential markets require very fine glass powders as substitutes for other fine silica or dry clay.

Glass Recycling Operation

The machine breaks the glass and finishes it into a variety of shapes and sizes from a sand-like dust to gravel, chips or mulch-like stone. The finished products are not jagged and will not cut and can be used for a multitude of things including sand for playgrounds, landscaping decoration and for traction on roadways in the winter.

The better systems today have no trouble extracting recyclable glass from any non-glass contaminants. Glass pulverizer systems for the mixed glass from single-stream programs are complete systems with a surge feed hopper, pulverizer, screen and conveyor packaged as a stand-alone system or integrated into an existing MRF. The bottles and other recyclable glass enter the crusher through a hopper. Material then passes into the pulverizer or hammer mill where electric motors turn rotating flexible hammers that crush the glass but leave the non-glass items in their larger, original form.
