Durable Design

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.

High Productivity

The Andela Glass Crusher can process up to 6,000 pounds per hour. This will allow you to make a uniform product and maximize shipping weights while being economical to operate.

  • Process up to 3 tons per hour
  • Glass crusher paired with a conveyor for ease of feeding glass into the crusher.
  • Broken glass cullet is then dropped into a bin or Gaylord under the discharge chute.

"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.
