LFA UCGC – Under Counter Glass Crusher


The LFA UCGC (under counter glass crusher) breaks glass reducing its volume by up to 5:1 therefore reducing waste collections considerably. The LFA UCGC is the same size as a kitchen unit and has foam encasing the crushing hammer reducing noise. This allows staff to process glass bottles directly at the bar making it ideal for pubs, hotels and restaurants.  Once the bottles are crushed the cullet drops into a plastic tote box located behind the door at the bottom of the machine. The tote box is able to hold up to 95 bottles or 16kg worth of crushed glass. Scales located under the tote box indicates when it is full by locking off the bottle chute.

The LFA UCGC is very easy to use.


When first using the machine, open the bottom door and insert a tote box onto the scales. Close the door and latch it shut. Press the green ‘go’ button to switch the glass crusher on into idle mode. Insert a glass bottle through the feed opening chute. As soon as the chute opens the machine hammers start spinning breaking the bottles that are inserted. The machine will go back into idle mode when glass stops being fed. Continue doing this until the full light illuminates. The feed chute will no longer open until the full tote box has been exchanged with an empty one. Open the bottom door and exchange tote boxes. Multiple full tote boxes can be stored on top of each other until they are taken to the bins to be emptied.


As simple as that! It probably takes longer to read the operation than to implement it. As part of the package, one of our trusty engineers will come to site and show the team how to do this in person. Training certification can be supplied if required.


*Note – Refurbished models may vary in its operation slightly, but the principle will remain very similar.
