Fiberglass Shredding Recycling

What is fiberglass shredding machine?
A fiberglass shredding machine is a machine used to cut objects made of fiberglass or fiberglass reinforced plastic into smaller pieces. Unlike plastic granulators, fiberglass shredding machines are designed specifically for recycling larger plastic waste, like fiberglass scrap, insulations, mannequins, pipes, carpets, fabrics, storage tanks, and house buildings. fiberglass shredding machines are usually too big for a granulator to process.

Fiberglass is a super-strong synthetic material with a high tensile strength starting from 55MPa. Throughput of fiberglass shredding machine ranges between 300kg/hr and 6000kg/hr, based on the configuration of the materials and machine model selection. The final output size is 40mm.

Fiberglass exposure to humans will irritate the eyes, skin, and respiratory system. WANROOETECH is well aware of that and takes measures. During the operation of the fiberglass shredding machine, there is much dust in the air as the fiberglass is broken down. To prevent possible explosion and air contamination, we run an air ventilation system to expel harmful fiberglass in the air.

Why do we need to recycle fiberglass?
As we all know, fiberglass is a broad-spectrum material. It is a material made of thin glass fibers woven together. It is made up of silica, sand, and other naturally occurring materials typically found in glass. Fiberglass can be divided into two major groups, continuous fibers and discontinuous fibers. Continuous fibers are widely used in yarns and textiles. Discontinuous fibers are widely used in batts, blankets, etc. Generally speaking, fiberglass is a kind of very usefully chemical material, when we enjoy the benefits and conveniences it brings to us, we also must be careful to handle it properly and not let its toxins collect in landfills.

On the other hand, fiberglass is a very strong material and can last for many years. After recycling, it can create even greater value. For example, it can be used to make fences instead of wood fences after recycling. Fiberglass fences are more durable than wood fences. In this way, we can also protect the forest resources on the earth.

How to recycle fiberglass?
Firstly we have to use the fiberglass shredding machine to shred the fiberglass waste. Due to the diverse forms of fiberglass waste, we have to use the fiberglass shredding machine to make it uniform. It is not only for convenient transport but also for the convenience of the fiberglass crusher. Then we send it to a professional fiberglass pulverizer, which will transform the pieces/powder of fiber glasses into brand new material that can take place of wood/aluminum to build picnic tables, fencing, sea walls and other items.

Benefits and disadvantages of Fiberglass
There are plenty of benefits to using Fiberglass. The material is very strong, lightweight and relatively inexpensive. It is not made of petrochemicals (like plastic) and will not corrode, even when exposed to salt water (like metal). Fiberglass insulation is water and fire resistant, good at absorbing sound and excellent at keeping your house cozy and warm. Then there are the downsides. Most types of Fiberglass insulation contain formaldehyde, an extremely toxic chemical. If that insulation winds up in a landfill the formaldehyde will leak out over time. Fiberglass must be handled carefully — all those tiny strands of glass can cause cuts and rashes. If you have to cut Fiberglass batts or use blown-in insulation, and you inhale those tiny glass particles on accident, they can cause health problems. It is very important to use proper safety equipment when working with fiberglass, including gloves, long shirts and pants, goggles and a respirator.
