Waste Tire Shredding & Recycling System
The rubber and steel wire in end-of-life tyres are valuable recyclable materials. Rubber can be used to make tyre-derived fuel (TDF) for power stations and cement kilns, to make granules for resilient paving, to make rubber powder for use in asphalt, to crack oil or to make recycled tyres, among many other uses.
Tyre Recycling Process
- Small-scale solution: use GDT series twin-shaft shredder to shred the tyres, the materials that do not meet the size requirements after shredding are sent back by the drum screen for further shredding, those that meet the requirements are sent by the belt conveyor to the steel wire separator to separate the steel wires in the tyres, then the steel wires are removed by the iron remover, and finally the rubber is made into powder or granules (optional) by using the mill or granulator according to the final size requirements.
- Large and medium-sized solutions: use a large twin-shaft shredder to pre-shred the tyres, next use a single-shaft shredder to continue processing the rubber into small granules, next separate the steel wires and finally use a mill or granulator to make the rubber to the required size according to requirements (optional).
