The Production Process of Foam Glass:

The production process of GEOCELL Foam Glass Aggregate is a fascinating journey from recycled glass to a versatile building material. Here’s an overview of the steps involved:

  • Collection and Cleaning: The process begins with the collection of post-consumer recycled glass. This glass is thoroughly cleaned to ensure it contains less than 1% non-glass contaminants.
  • Milling: The cleaned glass is then milled into a superfine powder. This step is crucial as it prepares the glass for the sintering process.
  • Mixing with Foaming Agent: The glass powder is measured and mixed with a foaming agent. The foaming agent will help the glass expand and form the cellular structure of foam glass.
  • Sintering: The mixture is then conveyed into ovens where it undergoes sintering at high temperatures, around 900°C. This heat causes the glass powder to expand and transform into foam glass.
  • Cooling and Formation: As the foam glass exits the kiln on a conveyor belt, it cools down. During this cooling phase, tension cracks occur, which helps in breaking down the material into gravel-sized pieces of foam glass aggregate.
  • Packaging: Finally, the foam glass aggregate is packaged into big bags of various volumes, ready for transportation and use in construction projects.

This process not only recycles waste glass but also creates a product that is lightweight, insulating, and environmentally friendly, making GEOCELL Foam Glass Aggregate a sustainable choice for modern construction.
