Bottle crusher EU patent
Performance b/h:
with infeed conveyor
up to 6000
up to 2400
• excellent crushing performance
• optimal volume reduction
• accident-proof (splinter protected)
• low noise [85/87 dB(Ai)]
• low wear rate
• compact design (minimum space requirement)
Therefore, HEIN bottle crushers are a valuable addition
for the bottling operation.
Model : CONTI
Fields of use:
• inspection machine
• presorting
• sorting
• sorting plants
faulty bottles feed by means of belt conveyor
Application examples for

Loading: volume conveyor
The model CONTI (automatic feed) is applied, if with high faulty bottles accrual (inspection machine, presorting, sorting) personnel and costs can be saved. In addition, the application of a CONTI line is recommendable, if for ergonomic reasons (insertion height) the application of a SOLO line is not recommended.

The bottle crushers can also be applied where waste glass is fed e.g. through funnels or slides to a container placed on a lower floor. The bottles are then directly fed into the pulverisation plant in bucketfuls through the funnel. In doing so, a crushing rate of up to 6000 b/h is achieved.

The decision as to which type of conveyor should be chosen for the faulty bottle movement, often depends on the
local space available.

Model: SOLO
The inspection machine sends the faulty bottles through a sorting belt to a collection-table.
From here the bottle crusher (Model: SOLO) is manually loaded.
Application examples for

Loading: manually
with a low faulty bottle rate (less then 1 %) manual disposal is economic
Model: SOLO
The sorting belt of the inspection machine feeds the bottles that are sorted out into the bottle crusher.
After a visual re-check the faulty bottle is manually fed into the BCP (Model: SOLO).
