- Machinex and UK-based Krysteline Technologies have teamed to distribute Krysteline's glass implosion technology and equipment to complement Machinex's existing material recycling facilities (MRF) and material handling technologies in North America.
- Besides glass implosion, MRF's can tap into Machinex and Krysteline's glass clean-up systems, including bulk handling equipment incorporating air density clean-up and screeners for multiple sizes of glass. They can tap into glass purification systems to remove metals, including non-conductive material. Other capabilities and features are removal of non-glass contaminates; high-speed, low-energy Cascade imploders to resize glass; high-capacity minerals screeners; and robotic packaging systems.
- Recovered glass can be of use in remelt, water filtration, sport turf dressing, and other applications.
Through this strategic distributorship Machinex will offer a unified interface of technology for customers trying to recover and process a material with multiple challenges.
"The market conditions for glass have always been challenging due to the high haulage costs, stringent quality standards and color disparity dominating strategies and, in many cases, legislation." says Pierre Paré, CEO of Machinex. "The Krysteline technology enables glass processors to yield consistent value regardless of size or color."
