By P.W. Dufton

A lot has occurred lately within the box of waste administration and this has had a robust impression at the dealing with of used tyres. This document presents updated facts and remark concerning the growth within the united kingdom, Europe and North the United States within the dealing with of the matter of used tyres as soon as faraway from automobiles. laws in Europe is concentrating the minds of experts and operators alike, to supply sustainable options to the restoration and recycling of those tyres and to maximize the ease from such task.

1 Machinery Developments Columbus McKinnon Corporation (CM) has for many years refined its range of tyre shredding equipment. 5 cm chips. Chips of these dimensions have been found the ideal size for tire-derived fuel (TDF) and a variety of civil engineering applications. These are also the usual feedstock for a granulation operation. CM is at the forefront of the continual improvement of technology in terms of long-term reliability and increasing cost-effectiveness. CM systems are believed to process over 100 million tyres a year across the world.

The company’s rotary shear shredder design is based on the patented Holman technology (the patent covers the proprietary method in which the knives are clamped to the rotor). The CM chipper, born of a customer requirement to regrind primary chips in high volumes 42 End-of-Life Tyres–Exploiting their Value and to specific sizes (yet not so small as to become crumb), uses the same basic design and cutting technology. Customer feedback has led to the latest design of CM shredder that can cope with super singles and other large truck tyres to provide a reliable machine for cleanup activities by local authorities and to serve the recent growth in civil engineering demand for chips.

The final assembly robot ‘hands’ the drum to the next machine that in turn feeds it to a curing press. The curing press consists of a carousel with six moulds revolving around an axis and is synchronised with the building stages to maintain a continuous cycle. Once the vulcanisation is complete, the same robot puts the empty drum back into the production sequence and the cured tyre is passed to a final stage for laser-controlled quality checks. If there is a call for a change of tyre size, the same machines are fitted with drums for the new dimensions.
