The Andela Glass Crusher Model AGC-1 provides a complete conveying and glass crushing system. The rugged abrasion resistant steel crushing chamber provides a long lasting, durable unit and the patented flexible impactors provide quiet crushing action. The Andela design also provides the flexibility to pass non-glass material without bridging or plugging of the system.
The Andela Glass Crusher is a simple, rugged design that is built to last.
The Andela Glass Crusher offers a number of features for ease of operation and maintenance. To operate, simply load the glass containers into the in-feed hopper and the conveyor automatically feeds the crusher. The shaft mounted rotating flexible steel impactors provide a quiet crushing of the glass into a uniform cullet size acceptable to the recycling industry. The flexible impactors also allow non-glass items like plastic bottles, or pieces of paper or cardboard to pass without any problem to the unit or flow of product. The self-cleaning tail-pulley and enclosed conveyor belt make the system a customer friendly and low maintenance system.

"Love the simplicity and robustness"
The Andela machine works without fail, every day. Love the simplicity and robustness of it. The resulting sand can be used in construction or in landscaping. Indeed, do not turn glass into trash, turn it into a usable (and valuable) product.
