Glass recycling: ejecting foreign materials using compressed air bursts


BOGE compressors in glass recycling

The challenge
In Bürck’s sorting plants, more than 1,300 jets use bursts of compressed air to remove foreign items from granulated glass. This is one of the toughest areas in which compressors can be used, since the intake air contains countless tiny particles of glass and quartz.

The BOGE solution
Four identical screw compressors of type SD 90, each with a supply rate of 9 m3/min, supply the valves and jets. A type MCS 8 master controller ensures that only as much compressed air is produced as required. There is a type VLEA 90 screw compressor available as a backup which has been operating reliably since 1991.

The result
A compressed air solution with the highest possible efficiency levels which keeps working reliably even under the toughest conditions.
