New Technique for “Cullet” Generation of Glass Bottles by Using Underwater Shockwave
As the application technique for glass bottle’s recycling system, a new “Cullet” generation method by using underwater shock wave was proposed. This small fragmentation technique of glass bottles has a lot of excellent advantages such as the simplification of process by simultaneous cleaning and crushing operation, the high collect rate of “Cullet” and so on. In this study, the relation between of the explosive conditions and “Cullet” sizes were clarified and the high speed fracture process of glass bottle was observed by framing photograph of high speed image converter.
