Introduction to Small Glass Crushing Machine

With the industrial development, there are more and more glass-made products, like a glass-bottled bear, glass store bottle, glass window and other glass package products. It is easy to break the glass and when the glass is broken, we always throw it away. This is a waste of resources.

There are many kinds of glass crusher in the market, like hammer crusher, compound crusher, impact crusher, jaw crusher, etc. Among them, hammer crusher is the most widely used to break the waste glass.

Benefits of Hammer Mill Compared with Other Glass Crushers

Hammer crusher is also called hammer mill or hammer crushing machine. The following words mainly tell the differences from the process and cost between hammer crusher and other glass crushers.

Crushed glass by jaw crusher or other crushers is of larger particle size; while the hammer mill can realize coarse, medium and fine crush of various waste glass, which can avoid a secondary crushing and save cost.

Usually, the glass crushing line is of lower capacity, which only needs a small crusher. Among all the glass crushers, hammer mill or hammer crusher has the lowest price. Even for larger-scaled plants, there is medium and large hammer crusher also with lower cost for your choice.

Therefore, the hammer mill is more recommended to crush waste glass. While the operator shall be equipped with personal protective equipment including safety glasses, ear protection, safety shoes, and protective gloves.

Applications of Hammer Mill

Hammer crusher is suitable for rough crushing of brittle materials. With the working principle of impaction from the hammerhead, the hammer mill is extensively used in large-, medium- and small-size plants.

Fote hammer mill can be applied to break waste beer bottles in bars or at home, waste industrial glass cans, automotive glass, glass packaging products in recycling plants.

Besides, it can be used in a cement raw material plant, and break clinker. Hammer crusher can also be applied in the crushing and production of building sand, ceramics, gypsum, sandstone, iron ore, coal gangue, lump coal, and other medium and hard ore.

Benefits of Glass Crushed by Hammer Crusher

● Glass is 100% recycled and can be used without quality and purity loss.

● Every 10% cullet can be used in glass packaging industry to reduce about 2-3% energy cost.

● Every 6 tons of recycled container glass in production can decrease about 1-ton carbon dioxide emission load.

● An estimated 80% of recovered glass can be made into new glass containers.

Applied Areas of Recycled Glass

The small glass crusher machine has a wide market value. The broken glass and steel powder can be processed and manufactured into: fiberglass helmet, fiberglass oxygen cylinder, fiberglass pipe, fiberglass handicraft, fiberglass storage tank, glass steel tile, FRP raw materials, etc. which are widely used in aerospace, railway, decorative architecture, home furniture, advertising display, arts and crafts gifts, building materials sanitary ware, yacht berthing, sports materials, sanitation engineering, more than ten related industries. It is highly praised, and become the darling of demand in the new era of the materials industry.

Small Glass Bottle Crusher Machine

Bars and hotels have a large accumulation of empty bottles every day. To save stacking space, a small glass bottle crusher is needed. Such a glass bottle crusher must have low noise and high output requirements, meanwhile, the appearance must be beautiful. Otherwise, it can't fit in with the bar decoration style.

In glass bottle recycling, it's generally to crush the glasses first, and then reuse. There are various glass bottle crushing machines for customers to choose from, such as mini hammer crusher and glass bottle hammer crusher. Both of them can be used to crush all kinds of glass.

Glass crushing machine has a very good effect on glass crushing, which has the advantages of good crushing effect, small grain size, high crushing efficiency, etc. Glass bottle crushers greatly save storing space and shipping costs for customers.

The Working Principle of Small Glass Crushing Machine

Classic Case

As mentioned above, the hammer mill is widely used in the waste glass recycling line, especially in small-scale ones.

Russia, as a big consumer of alcohol, has a lot to do with a large number of waste glass bottles. The storage of bottles becomes a big issue.

Mr. Evanoff runs a small waste glass recycling factory. To save the storage space and improve the recycling efficiency, he introduced a hammer mill from Fote Machinery. Instead of a medium or large hammer mill, Fote engineer offered him a solution of a small hammer mill, which is enough to meet his requirement.

The capacity, color, and some other details of this small hammer mill are customized with a capacity of about 1-3TPH based on Mr. Evanoff's factory scale. After about half a year, Mr. Evanoff sent us an email saying that the hammer mill still operates well at a low failure rate.

Here is part of his words in that email:
Bottles take too much space. It's not good for more glass recycling. We happened to know that the hammer mill performs well in crushing waste glass. And Fote hammer mill helped us with more efficient glass recycling to save the storage space.

Failure Analysis of Hammer Crusher

In the crushing process of small glass crushing machine, some common faults will appear, which will affect the working efficiency of the crusher. The causes and treatment methods of these common faults are analyzed in detail below.


There are four possible reasons for this failure: different shafts of crusher and motor; the feed size is too large or the feeding is uneven; loose bearing seat or foot nut; loose connection between tooth cap and tooth seat. The corresponding processing methods are as follows: correct and adjust the installation position of crusher and motor to meet the technical requirements of installation; control the feed size to ensure even feeding; check carefully and tighten the bearing seat or foot nut in time; carefully check and tighten the cap and the tooth seat in a timely manner.

2.Yield reducing

There are two reasons for the reduction in crushing production: the toothed cap is worn or the gap between the toothed roller and the comb plate is too large; for tooth cap worn, need to be repaired or replaced; for the latter, it is necessary to replace the comb board and adjust the gap.

3.Abnormal noise in the crusher

If the non-broken object enters the broken cavity, it is necessary to clean the broken cavity; If the internal parts are loose, they need to be carefully checked and tightened in time; If the internal part is broken, the broken part needs to be replaced.

4.The bearing temperature is too high

The cause of this failure is generally due to abnormal operation of lubricating oil or bearing broken, such as insufficient lubricating oil, dirty lubricating oil. If there is a problem with lubricating oil, you need to refuel or change the oil. If the bearing is damaged and the temperature is too high, the bearing needs to be replaced.
