Glass products are indispensable in our lives. While they bring us beauty and practicality, they will inevitably be broken and become waste glass. Waste glass belongs to recyclable garbage. After processing, it still has high industrial value.

With the development of various crushing and grinding equipment, new life has been given to waste glass. Only one glass crushing and grinding production line can solve the problem of waste glass pollution. More importantly, it brings a considerable amount to managers profit.


What are the uses after glass grinding?

After the waste glass is ground into glass powder, it has the characteristics of small particle size, good dispersibility, high transparency, and good anti-settling effect. It has a lot of achievements in the industrial field:

• The mixed use of glass powder and paint can improve the transparency of the paint, and also increase the wear resistance and folding resistance of the paint.

• Glass powder added to concrete can improve the basic chemical properties of cement and make it more durable.

• Glass powder can also be used for processing pipes, oxygen cylinders, glass fiber reinforced plastic helmets, handicrafts, etc., in railway, construction, aerospace, decoration, advertising and other industries, with considerable economic value.

What kind of grinding equipment is needed for grinding waste glass?

From waste glass to finished glass powder, it is mainly divided into two steps: crushing + grinding. First, use a crusher to process the glass into materials with a smaller particle size that can enter the mill, and then the glass fragments that enter the grinding mill will be ground into powder under the action of the mill, that is, the finished material. The equipment used includes vibrating feeder, crusher, grinding mill, vibrating screen, sand washing machine, etc.


The equipment that can be used in the crushing stage are:

1. Jaw crusher

It is mainly responsible for the coarse crushing of waste glass. The maximum feed size can reach 1500mm. If your raw material has a large size, you should choose it. The jaw crusher has a simple structure and reasonable design. It has a deep crushing cavity without dead ends. The output is 1-2200t/h, and the finished product is 10-400mm.

2. Impact crusher

The hardness of glass is not high and it is easier to break. Therefore, it is more appropriate to choose a relatively low-priced counter-breaker. It not only has high output and low price, but also has a good grain shape. It is a good choice for medium-hard materials!

3. Hammer crusher

It is a typical one-time molding equipment, equivalent to the effect of a jaw breaker + counterattack breaker, and its output is as high as 3200t/h, the price is cheap, and the feed size can reach 1700mm, which is a cost-effective choice!

The equipment that can be used in the milling stage are:

1. Raymond roller mill

Raymond pulverizer is a commonly used milling equipment. The particle size of the finished product can be adjusted between 50-500 mesh, which can meet the general demand for glass powder making.

2. Ultrafine grinding mill

If the particle size of your finished product is finer, you can use an ultrafine powder grinder. The particle size of the finished product can be adjusted between 300-3000 mesh. It has higher technical content, more advanced performance, and higher price than Raymond mill.
