Specifically designed for flat glass
On a flat glass production line crushers are required at several locations. Under some circumstances it may be necessary to pass the complete production through a crusher which uses hammers attached to a rotating shaft. After cutting to size reject sheets are also passed to a sheet crusher. A further crusher is normally located at the end of the line.
The edge pieces that carry the marks of the top rollers from the production are removed and are normally passed through a chute to a central longitudinal hammer crusher. If no suitable cellar is available it may be necessary to install separate edge crushers on each side of the production line.
It is also possible to pass the cullet through a further crusher to obtain the necessary particle size before it is returned to the melting process.
