EGFM Production Process

As you can probably imagine there is a sophisticated production process in place which turns your old wine bottles into a safe and effective filter media. EGFM is manufactured by a mechanically induced high-speed process that transfers energy into the glass feedstock resulting in the destruction of glass whilst rendering it sharp free. It does not grind, mill, hammer or flail the glass. It does not abrade, so EGFM retains a smooth shiny surface. The various stages in the production process are highlighted below.

 

Stage 1

Waste container glass accepted from unwanted re-melt industry and local household collections.

Stage 2

Waste container glass accepted from unwanted re-melt industry and local household collections.

Stage 3

Sharp free and un-graded basic glass cullet is initially produced.

Stage 4

Further processing is carried out to produce a sharp free, clean, dry and graded environmentally friendly product with excellent properties in water filtration.
