Custom designed tire shredder systems to process old passenger or truck tires into boiler fuels, rubberized asphalt, landfill cover, depolymerization, devulcanization, or pyrolysis.

Tire Shredders

Recycling tires can be very challenging, as their rubber blend is made up of roughly 30 different ingredients, making them extremely durable and tough to break down. A tire shredder is a device that aids in the recycling process by shredding and altering the material so it can be transformed into various usable products.

The complex nature of tires requires tire shredders to possess far more strength and force than any other kind of shredder. There are different kinds of tire shredding machines, each designed in a unique way to process scrap rubber tires into various forms.

Different Types of Tire Shredders

Since the rubber blend of a tire needs to go through a number of refinement processes before it can be used, each tire shredder machine varies in its internal mechanical design and process. Consider the following common types of tire shredding equipment:

  • Shear Shredders
    Shear shredders are typically low speed and employ two shaft rotary knives to cut materials.
  • Chippers
    Chippers can be single or multiple stage contraptions that use high-speed rotary knives, wheels and drums in the process to cut materials into chips.
  • Grinders
    Grinders work on either high or low speed using wheels, drums, and plates in the abrasion process, often combined with compression to crush materials.
  • Granulators
    Granulators vary widely in size and mechanics and employ units that use knives to cut parts into fine particles.
  • Specialty Shredders
    Specialty shredders in case of tires are designed to forcefully tear the tire into small pieces using rotary shafts at low speeds, under very high torque.

Advantages Of Tire Shredders

The Benefits Of Investing In A Tire Shredder Include:

  • Environmental Benefits through Proper Disposal
    Tire shredders help in the recycling process of used tires for proper disposal, instead of letting them pollute the environment, take up space in landfills and risk public health.
  • Immense Potential for Processed Tire Re-Use
    By easing the process of recycling, tire shredders allow the re-use of scrap tires in the following ways:
  1. Rubberized asphalt is widely used to pave roads.
  2. Fuel derived from recycling tires is used to produce energy, which burns cleaner than oil and coal, and reduces fossil fuel consumption.
  3. Rubber-encased rail road ties prove to be highly durable and typically last up to 60-90 years.
  4. Repurposed rubber can be used to make shoes, bags, belts, etc., as well as decorative products, furniture, flooring and more.

  • Mobile or stationary tire shredders available.
  • Throughputs range from 1-10 tons per hour.
