The grain size of ground glass as the main component has a decisive influence on the quality of construction products made from foam-glass concrete. This means that the grain size must be regulated for definite types of products and it must be possible to make in-line adjustments in the comminution of technogenic cullet. To this end an adaptive vibratory mill equipped with an electronic-hydraulic control system for making in-line adjustments in the technological regime of comminution as a function of the initial material and the required grain size of the comminuted glass was developed.

This work was performed as part of the subproject ‘Commercialization of energy-conserving technologies for the production of gas- and foam-glass concretes,’ financed as part of the project ‘Stimulation of productive innovations,’ supported by the World Bank and the government of Kazakhstan. The main results and recommendations may not reflect the official position of the World Bank and the government of Kazakhstan.
