CRT Recycling Systems

This revolutionary system is unique in its ability to process whole CRT, VDT, and TV tubes into separate crushed glass and metal products. The system will process up to 600 tubes per hour. It is delivered in its own environmentally enclosed security container complete with dust collection system.

The CRT’s enter the Andela CRT Module container and are reduced and separated into crushed glass and other components by the patented flexible impactor system. This mixed material is moved through a metal separation system where the metal is separated from the glass. Ferrous metals and the crushed glass are separately discharged from the containerized system. The CRT-40 Pulverizer Module is designed to accept pre-processed CRT glass from the CRT-20 Module. This secondary processing module will effectively remove residual contaminants and produce pulverized glass of uniform size.

The environmentally enclosed security container provides total weather protection, dust containment, minimizes unwanted material contamination and reduces casual operator intervention. The self-contained system is placed on a steel structure to achieve efficient material handling flow of the processed materials. System operation is simple and requires minimal training.

Output Sized Glass

The CRT-20′ crusher discharges a 6″ minus glass cullet. The larger ferrous metal pieces are separated out. The CRT-40′ pulverizer unit reduces the 6″ minus glass cullet down to 1/4″ minus pulverized glass.


The CRT-20 crusher module system will discharge the processed material from the sides of its 8′ wide x 9′ high x 20′ long container. The self-contained system is placed on a steel structure to achieve efficient material handling flow of the infeed and discharged materials.

The Andela CRT Recycling System comes complete with its own dust collection system and will process approximately 600 CRT tubes an hour. The CRT-20′ Crusher Module Includes an infeed conveyor, CRT Crusher, conveyor, and cross-belt magnet, container and dust collector. The CRT-40 Module includes an Andela Pulverizer, trommel, and conveyors all contained in a container. Loading, unloading or stacking conveyors are available options.

CRT 20

The Andela CRT-20 Recycling System uses patented “flailing-arm” hammers to break CRT tube glass while leaving internal ferrous metal frames whole for separation. At the end of 20’ container, ferrous metal is removed and crushed glass exits the conveyor. The container, with dust extraction, captures phosphor and dust. Combined with the Andela AGB-2 Glass Crusher System, CRT tube glass is crushed into approximately 6” minus glass. Larger pieces of glass – mostly panel glass – is separated for ease of picking and removal.

CRT 40

After CRT tubes are processed with the CRT-20 system, the crushed glass cullet can then be pulverized. A Glass Pulverizer System with CRT-40 container pulverizes funnel/panel/mixed glass mix into “sand” or “gravel” sized product. All non-glass residue is separated. The entire system is containerized for dust collection.
