Krysteline Technologies has developed innovative implosion technology to transform glass into small fragments. With the implosion system, a calibrated-speed rotor sends a shock wave to glass bottles or pieces.
This wave, which travels back and forth, causes instantaneous implosion of the glass without shredding the labels or capsules, which are therefore easier to sort and extract.
This method is less costly to maintain and uses less energy than conventional grinding processes. As an added benefit, the edges of the treated glass are rounded, not sharp.
