High torque dual shaft shredders rotate at relatively low speed and use qualifying screens to control chip size. The PT-6000 Tire Shredder has a capacity of 11,000 pounds per hour in 2" chip size and can handle passenger tires and light truck tires.
Larger truck tires and high volumes of automobile tires can be rapidly processed in the larger MS-5040 Tire Shredder.
The rugged design of these shredders and the hardened knives allows the whole tire to be processed at once and does not require removal of the bead as some systems require.
A removable qualifying screen is used in the shredder to determine output chip size, with chips as small as 1" when required. Higher production rates can be achieved with larger screen openings which results in larger chip sizes.
Tires chips processed through these shredders can be used in various industrial applications requiring recycled rubber. They are also often used as fuel where they are burned in furnaces, or for tire derived fuel, and alternative fuels. Other uses include the manufacture of rubber sheet, various industrial products, and even tire mulch for landscaping and drain fill.
Each application is different. Contact our engineering department to request assistance with your tire shredding and grinding needs.
