We work with the largest glass bottle manufacturers in the world to optimize their glass production processes
One of the most common applications for silica sands is in glass production – we manufacture the full range of equipment required on a glass sand processing plant and the modular nature of our equipment ensures:
There is not one specification for glass sand as a result of the many different types of glass that can be produced. Each glass has differing chemical and physical properties which require the use of different glass sands. Most of the commercial glass in everyday use is soda-lime-silica glass.
These contain between 70% and 74% silicon dioxide – the ultimate source of which is silica sand.
The production of these specialist silica sands for application in glass manufacturing requires specialist screening and classification equipment from CDE. This complex process will first involve a detailed analysis of your feed material both in terms of the particle size distribution (PSD) and the chemical properties of your silica sand.
Following this analysis and an understanding of the exact physical and chemical properties you require from your glass sands we will design and custom built glass sand processing plant which typically includes the following equipment from our range.
