Aggregate Systems Develops Windshield Recycling System
Glass Aggregate Systems
of Faribault, Minn., has introduced a system for recycling windshields
that can no longer be used, using little electricity and transforming
the glass into an aggretate of ½ inch or smaller. The equipment's
capacity can range from 500 pounds an hour to 20 tons an hour.
The new equipment crushes the glass and separates the laminate from the
glass, discarding the laminate into an independent conveyor/container.
This is all done in a one pass process at a capacity of 10 + tons/hour.
The system begins with manually feeding or conveying glass material into
the glass processor, which initially breaks down the large and thick glass
material and cuts the laminate from the glass. The next stage further
reduces the size of the glass and removes the laminate from the glass.
The glass aggregate end product is either conveyed to a drop-site (bunker,
truck or rail car) or drops into customer's container.
