Recycling remains a trump card in glass processing. There are around 250,000 glass containers in Germany, and up to 85% of new bottles are produced from recycled material. We have automated a system for particularly "motley" collections.
The separation of the glass particles is a process with multiple stages. The working processes of the treatment plant range from vibrating screens over classifiers to magnetic filters and dust removal by air pressure. We have automated the complete conveyor technology.
The entire system configuration is displayed over several touch panels so that important operating parameters can also be decentrally modified at any time.
With our automation technology, the proportion of recycled glass in the production process can be further increased – in the spirit of energy efficiency, since recycled glass melts at much lower temperatures than that which is newly produced.
