Recycled glass process systems are used for removing harmful contaminants such as dirt, stones, plastics, metal, ceramics and paper from external cullet. Cleaning processes including washing, separation of ferrous, non-ferrous and ceramic particles and colour sorting can be all done with automatic machines. Such equipment guarantees a cullet purity which is not possible using manual methods.
Vidromecanica also supplies semi-automated waste glass recycling plants.
Vidromecanica supplies glass cullet return systems for handling hot cullet and glass gobs, as well as cold cullet. Hot cullet is water cooled on a scraper conveyor equipped with gob mangles if necessary to keep the pieces of reasonable size for automated handling.
