Forglass PCR Cullet System


Forglass PCR Cullet System

Protecting the world around us is everyone’s responsibility. Environmental protection has many forms, not the least of which is the reduction of harmful emissions. This necessity has also reached the glass industry. Glass is infinitely recyclable, making it an ideal material that can be recycled again and again in the production of new container glass.

More and more glass factories are sourcing a special PCR (Post-Consumer Recycled) glass system, which completes the composition of the batch delivered to the furnace.

Challenge and Responsibility

A PCR system supplier is often faced with the challenge of adding a line to an existing batch plant. This involves planning the space to accommodate the recycled glass transport system, storage space and conveyor system. The experience we gained during numerous implementations and our comprehensive approach to design and construction of our machines, which includes mechanical, electrical and automation, allows us to provide solutions that meet the most restrictive requirements.

Just like our compact batch plants, PCR systems feature well-thought-out process line solutions in a small area that can be neatly integrated into an existing facility. Our advanced recycled glass handling and storage lines are already successfully supplying the batch plants of leaders in the glass industry, ensuring both innovation and the highest safety standards.

Dedicated Solutions

Forglass technology is based on dedicated equipment for unloading the PCR cullet, crushing it to a predetermined size, then transporting it by modern conveyors and feeders. Clients can enjoy greatly expanded cullet storage capacity and significant increases in overall efficiency of the cullet line.
