Technological process

Production of foam glass consists of 3 interrelated phases.

1. Production of glass powder with the desired properties. The customer performs this function.

2. Production of semi-finished crude.

Plant capacity up to 10 thousand tons per year.

  • Glass powder in a paddle mixer granulator combined with a solution of sodium silicate and granulated.
  • On the plate granulator compacted and brought to the required size.
  • Produced drying semi-finished crude, packing in big bags and shipped to the storage warehouse.

To increase the number of smaller granules (50% up to 1 mm) of this section can be completed GDI (granulation drying installation).

3. Production of foam glass

Plant capacity up to 10 thousand tons per year.

  • Big bags with a semi-finished product – crude loading with a winch in the upsetting station with dispenser, where they are unloaded into the hopper.
  • Using a metering screw feeder, the granular composition (hereinafter granules) is fed into the drying drum.
  • Dried pellets from the dryer drum are discharged into the conveyor tray, and with its help are fed into the hopper feeder of kaolin and granules.
  • Kaolin is loaded manually into the hopper.
  • Further, granules mixed with kaolin, is fed into the gas furnace for foaming.
  • Granules for sprinkling tube and frothing get through the transition hopper into the drum cooler.
  • Foamed granules with a scraper conveyor are supplied to the complex for receiving and packaging the finished product.
  • The product in bags placed on a pallet and wrapped in the Pallet.

Possibility of complete equipment for sieving into various fractions.
