5 Types of Glass Crusher for Sale

Author : Jordan | Last Updated :

Glass is one of the commonly used material in people's production and daily life. It is widely used in construction, chemical, medical, automotive, engineering, instrumentation, and other industries.

Waste glass is on the rise due to the popularization of glass. Meanwhile, the recycling of glass waste reduces the discharge of garbage, achieves the goal of environmental protection, and brings good benefits for investment users.

Manual recycling of waste glass leads to high cost and is not conducive to human health. Therefore, the glass crusher has become the optimal choice for people.

The glass crusher can process various waste glass such as glass pieces, glass bottles, automobile glass, bulletproof glass, industrial glass tubes, and other glass products into various shapes of granular, fibrous, powdery, etc.

There are five types of glass crushers: jaw crusher, hammer crusher, roll crusher, impact crusher, and compound crusher.

Starting from the above five types of glass crushers, this article will analyze the advantages and disadvantages of these glass crushing machines to help you choose the suitable glass crusher.

Advantages of glass jaw crusher

Function The traditional jaw crusher is a primary crushing equipment, and Fote Heavy Machinery has improved the jaw crusher in its design so that it can be used for fine crushing and suitable for glass recycling.

Fote jaw crusher has the advantage of simple structure, small footprint, large inlet and adjustable outlet.

Crushing performance Since Fote jaw crusher has a deep crushing cavity, glass can be crushed and processed by squeezing, grinding and other methods. At the same time, glass jaw crusher has the characteristics of large crushing ratio and a wide range of application which can crush various glass such as beer bottles and automobile glass with different hardness.

Safety Given that glass is a highly brittle material that may cause some splashes during the crushing process, Fote glass jaw crusher has been designed with a semi-closed vertical curtain at the feeding port, which can prevent the splash of materials, and play the role of noise reduction and dust sealing.

Capacity The glass jaw crusher is the highly productive equipment with the capacity of 1 to 500 tons per hour. And the glass crushing machine has a complete model series to meet the different needs of customers.

It can be used in large, medium, and small bars, restaurants, communities, glass recycling plants, and other occasions.

Disadvantages of glass jaw crusher

The vulnerable jaw plate surface will directly affect the crushing work as soon as the machine starts running.

Therefore, the operator should monitor the status of the jaw plate in time so as to control the discharging size within the specified range.

Main parameters of glass jaw crusher

Glass hammer crusher

Glass hammer crusher

Glass hammer crusher

Advantages of glass hammer crusher

Function The glass can be easily crushed by the impact force produced by the high-speed hammerhead of the glass hammer crusher. Simultaneously, this work requires the hammerhead to have strong wear resistance.

While the hammerhead of Fote glass hammer crusher made with the new process can exactly meet this standard.

Design The gap of the grate at the discharge port can be adjusted to control the product size. The glass crusher has a wide range of adaptation, advanced structural design, good sealing of frame, and produces low noise and little pollution.

Disadvantages of glass hammer crusher

The glass hammer crusher is prone to blockage when processing sticky and wet glass materials, thus causing downtime (the moisture content of the materials should not exceed 10%).

While crushing dry glass materials, it is easy to produce dust. Dust will enter the bearing and mix with the grease, resulting in poor lubrication and the bearing damage.

Main parameters of glass hammer crusher

Model Feeding size (mm) Discharging size (mm) Capacity(m³/h) Power
PCΦ400×300 200 25 5-10 4P 11KW
PCΦ600×400 250 30 10-22 4P 22KW
PCΦ800×600 300 35 18-40 6P 55KW

Glass roll crusher

Glass roll crusher

Glass roll crusher

Advantages of glass roller crusher

Function Glass roll crusher has a simple design, a small footprint, and is easy to install and replace its components. It is equipped with a dustproof board, improving the sealing performance and avoiding the splash of glass dust.

It crushes the glass by squeezing method and has an easily adjustable discharging port, which can meet different discharge requirements.

Safety The glass roll crusher adopts a splash-proof feed hopper and a protective cover, which can effectively ensure the safety of the operator, and further improve the performance of the machine.

Capacity The glass roll crusher has an extremely high output. In general, the output can be increased by 30-40% when crushing glass bottles. And it saves more energy during the crushing process.

Disadvantages of glass roller crusher

The glass roll crusher has bad performance on crushing glass pieces because the pieces will leak down from the gap between the rollers, thereby reducing the crushing effect.

At the same time, the surface of the roller is vulnerable which will result in a larger gap between the rollers and make uneven crushing force.

Main parameters of glass roller crusher

Model 2PG0425 2PG0640 2PG0740 2PG0850
Roller diameter (mm) Ф400 Ф600 Ф700 Ф800
Roller width (mm) 250 400 400 500
Feeding size (mm) ≤25 ≤25 ≤25 ≤25
Discharge size (mm) 2-8 2-8 2-8 2-8
Capacity (t/h) 5-10 10-20 15-30 20-40
Motor power (kw) 5.5×2 15×2 30×2 45×2

Advantages of glass impact crusher

Function The glass impact crusher can handle glass waste with large water content, if the glass material contains too much water, it could be reduced by the heating device installed on the feeding port and impact plate.

Crushing performance The glass impact crushing machine has a big impact force. It can crush glass with high hardness and will not cause serious damage to the machine.

Glass impact crusher can effectively control the discharge particle size and has a wide adjusting range of discharging port. It can control the output size by adjusting the rotor speed, the impact type and the gap of the grinding chamber.

Wear part The glass crushing process has very little wear on the impact crusher. When the glass material is broken by the impact crusher, it will hit the front of the hammer plate without any touch with the back and sides of the machine.

And the grinding rod at the bottom of the equipment is also very convenient to replace, which saves time and effort and reduces equipment downtime.

Disadvantages of glass impact crusher

Due to the large hammerhead of the impact crusher, its balance needs to be calibrated during installation, otherwise, the vibration force of the machine will be relatively large during operation, which may be dangerous.

Main parameters of glass impact crusher

Model Specification (mm) Feeding port size (mm) Max feeding size (mm) Capacity (t/h) Dimensions (Length × Width × Height) (mm)
PF-1007 Φ1000×700 400×730 300 30-70 2330×1660×2300
PF-1010 Φ1000×1050 400×1080 350 50-90 2370×1700×2390
PF-1210 Φ1250×1050 400×1080 350 70-130 2680×2160×2800
PF-1214 Φ1250×1400 400×1430 350 80-180 2650×2460×2800

Glass compound crusher

Glass compound crusher

Glass compound crusher

Advantages of glass compound crusher

Function The glass compound crusher produces less noise (lower than 75 decibels) and dust pollution, which is very suitable for restaurants, communities and other occasions.

The working performance of the glass compound crusher is less affected by the moisture of the material. The finished product is cubic and has large bulk density and small iron pollution, which will improve the recycling value of glass wastes.

Structure The glass compound crusher is designed with no screen, which can crush glass materials with high water content without blockage, and the moisture of materials can reach about 8%.

Safety The glass compound crusher adopts an elastic adjustment mechanism, and the unbreakable materials can be discharged automatically without causing damage to the equipment.

Disadvantages of glass compound crusher

The glass composite crusher is designed with a vertical structure, so the material may not be repeatedly crushed at a fast-passing speed, and a good crushing effect cannot be guaranteed for glass pieces.

Main parameters of glass compound crusher

Model Capacity (t/h) Power (kw)
800 5-15 4p 30kw
1000 10-30 4p 55kw
1250 20-60 6p 90kw
