Process design for the production of a ceramic-like body from recycled waste glass
- 36 Downloads
The development of an energy-economic process is described for converting recycled waste glass into a versatile material with fired properties at least comparable with those of conventional clay-based ceramics. The glass is ground to — 353 μm powder, blended with up to 10% clay binder and pressed to the required shape before firing. An experimental investigation of the effect of compositional and fabrication variables on the green strength of such a body shows that the best methods for optimizing the green strength are by the appropriate choice of pressing pressure and drying conditions rather than by adjusting either the particle size distribution of the powder or the binder content, both of which options can adversely affect the fired properties of the body.
