One of Andela’s popular glass pulverizer models, the GP-05L, recycles waste glass at a rate of 1- 2 tons/hour into glass sand and gravel sized aggregates, separated from trash. This combination glass pulverizer-screening unit performs like our larger glass recycling systems while maintaining a condensed footprint making it ideal for smaller scale recycling operations.

The pulverizer uses patented flexible impactors to selectively reduce waste glass into a glass aggregate without any sharp edges.No pre-sorting is required, the mixed glass waste travels through the pulverizer and into the rotary trommel. Oversized non-glass contaminants such as paper labels, metal caps, corks, etc. remain intact for hands free removal during screening. The result is a safe handling recycled glass product with no sharp edges that can be sold as an alternative sand and gravel right in your local community!

The pulverizer is lined with abrasion resistant steel for increased wear protection and durability. Maintenance doors make replacement of hammer assemblies easier than ever before. Routine replacement of standard wear parts will ensure decades of quality operation and service.

The GP-05L can be purchased as a single unit or as part of a system. System packages include the Andela Metering surge hopper, Andela glass pulverizer-screening unit, conveyors, and electrical controls. Each system is designed to meet customer specifications and installation supervision, operations and safety training is available upon request.
