Process Description

The process begins as whole and broken glass material is loaded into the vibratory feed Hopper. The vibratory feeder deposits this glass material from the hopper onto a conveyor. At a rate regulated to achieve a loading speed up to 20 Ton per hour.

The glass then moves up the conveyor, falling into the Popper Unit where it is initially broken and processed by means of a three stage process. The remaining glass material proceeds to enter the Shearing Unit where the glass is further reduced and the paper labels and plastic rings are detached from the glass containers. The glass then enters the Sizing Unit which further reduces the glass by using a series of rotating tines. The sized product then drops onto a Conveyor that transports it to the Trommel.

In the Trommel Unit, the sized glass material and contaminants (labels and any remaining plastic and/or metal lids, bottle caps, and plastic or metal container rings, etc.) are separated from each other. The Trommel Unit discharges the contaminants via a chute into the purchaser's trash receptacle for disposal while the glass particles fall through the screen/screens in the Trommel and the screened material flows directly into a storage container.

With this aggregating system a much preferred end product is produced which is unique compared to aggregate/sand that is produced by other systems, in that, it is superior in quality, and clean. The glass particles are rounded-like, non-sharp and of a desired maximum consistent size in a one pass through this system. It is smooth and sand-like enough to be used on beaches when processed by using our 3/16" mesh screen. In fact, this equipment can produce any desired sieve size from 0.1mm to 10mm.

This equipment is sturdily built with abrasive resistant steel and is so designed that all functioning parts can be easily accessed for maintaining. Energy costs and maintenance costs are extremely low.

The advantages of this system are many. Namely, it eliminates dangerous pre- breaking, processes up to gallon size jugs whole, has a very low maintenance cost record, eliminates colour sorting, removes other debris during the processing stages and produces a maximum consistent sized aggregate by using a one-pass technology.

Please note for very specific glass particle sizing, a secondary sieving system may be required.
