The Best Glass Crushers for Your Business

Glass crushers are used to crush or pulverize glass waste. Handling glass waste comes with different safety risks. The best way of managing glass waste is to convert it into small pieces called cullet or sand with the help of a glass crusher or pulverizer. Crushed or pulverized glass can be deposited into self-dumping hoppers, gaylords, super sacks, or open top roll off which makes handling and shipping easier and more economical.  If your commercial activities are responsible for the production of glass waste or you have a waste recycling plant, then utilizing a glass crusher or pulverizer to reduce volume for handling and shipping is a must.

Why Glass Crushers?

The installation of a glass crusher is not just because of local laws or safety risks. The main reason is that glass waste is non-degradable. It does not decompose with time. There is only one solution for glass waste management and that is recycling.

The installation of a glass bottle crusher or a  commercial glass crusher shows your commitment towards the protection of the environment. It affects your business reputation positively and helps your business to grow.

When to choose a Glass Crusher vs a Glass Pulverizer?

Choose a glass crusher for product destruction of defective or out of date products or when you need size reduction for storage and shipping. Glass crushers produce variable glass cullet approximately ¾” with sharp edges.  This cullet is used for recycling purposes and can be used to make new glass products, fiber glass and aggregate.

Choose a glass pulverizer when you intend to reuse or recycle the pulverized glass / sand into cement, aggregate or landscaping. Glass pulverizers converts glass to sand with no sharp edges, ranging from 3/8” minus to 1/8” minus.
