What do our Glass Pulverizer Systems do?


The Andela Glass Pulverizer  Systems turns small to large volumes of waste glass into “sand” and “gravel” with no sharp edges. Feed in mixed, broken, unsorted glass, and take out round-edged aggregate. The patented Andela flexible impactors will selectively reduce the glass into 3/8″ aggregate but leave metal, plastics, and most paper in a larger form. Metal, plastic, and most paper is removed without hand sorting. Capacities are available from a small, hand fed model, up to 20 tons per hour.

Output Sized Glass

Our glass recycling systems also produce a distinctly different product: a rounded glass particle, 3/8″ in size or finer. If material other than glass (plastic, metal caps, or covers) goes through the pulverizer , these materials will keep their larger form and thus be easily separated from the glass-sand with the trommel separator. One or two screen sizes can be used with the trommel to produce one aggregate mix (3/8″ minus) or two different sized aggregates (1/8″ minus and 1/8″-3/8″).


Each glass recycling system usually consists of a metering surge hopper, glass pulverizer, conveyors, and a trommel separator. Each system is designed to the customers’ needs and specifications. Central to the system is the patented pulverizer. It uses a flexible impact system that pulverizes glass into usable aggregate the consistency of fine sand to gravel. The flexible impact system eliminates the grinding process typical of other machines. (reduces wear and maintenance) and produces a distinctly different aggregate, which is safe and easy to handle.
