Glass 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.
