Factory cullet recycling

Scraping conveyors – FACTORY CULLET RECYCLING 24/7
A by-product (to a certain degree) in the production of glass articles is always glass waste in form of hot and cold glass. Glass cullet however represents a valuable secondary raw material for glass production. This is one of the important sources for saving on raw material and energy.
A mature technique is required to treat accordingly hot, liquid waste glass that can occur in drops (hot gob) or strings.
The goal is to feed back to the melting process the production waste glass in a suitable ecological and economic form.

Crushers – crushing to size

We have the right glass crushers for every application - be it factory cullet or foreign cullet processing, or glass recycling. The cullet can then be melted down again and be returned to the production process. Single or multiple, different crusher models manufactured in-house are used depending on the type of glass. All feature very low levels of wear and minimum maintenance overhead. As one of the largest manufacturers in this sector, we have a broad level of experience and know the issues to which attention should be paid

Post-Consumer Glass Recycling

Glass waste collected externally cannot be simply fed back to the production process. Rather, it must first be conditioned such that it complies with the purity and particle size regulations of the glass industry. We design, supply and build complete waste glass reprocessing plants, and provide the conveying technology and engineering skills.
Waste glass reprocessing plants normally include conveying, crushing, screening and sorting technologies (e.g. CSP, all-metal, colour sorting).
