Control and aeration concept for the grinding process

Waste glass must be cleaned, sieved, weighed and ground in various steps to grind it to finest glass powder. We were commissioned to design and carry out the automation of a new glass grinding plant.

In 2022, Schirmbeck GmbH has extended its glass recycling to include a finest grinding process. For this, we coupled the controls of the mills, the conveyor systems and the silos with our master control and added a uniform visualisation.
Due to the very fine grinding of the glass and the dust produced, we have designed a strong aeration system which avoids deposit of fine glass particles in the control cabinets.
Process data and messages of all plant parts are displayed on our control unit and reflected on the PC in the central office.
