Tyre Recycling Process
There are many recycling processes that can be used to recycle scrap tyres. Our Tyre Recycling Plant granulates waste tyres into a fine rubber powder producing 4 sizes; 5-10mm, 1-2mm, 60 mesh and 30 mesh. While processing scrap tyres, the Plant uses special magnets to remove and separate all steel from the tyres. We have contracted a third party steel recycling company to recycle all steel waste that is removed from scrap tyres. Our Plant recycles 100% of the scrap tyre, producing no polluted water, no waste gas and no waste residue is produced during production. Our Tyre Recycling Plant uses a 4 step process;
- First we de-bead the scrap tyres using special de-beading machines that cut the beads off the tyres.
- From there the tyres are placed on the conveyer belt where they are transported info the first rubber shredding machine, there they are shredded to 50mm pieces.
- Then they are fed from the first rubber shredding machine via conveyer belt into the second rubber shredding machine. Here the 50mm pieces of rubber are shredded into 5-10mm pieces and using special magnets all steel is removed from the rubber. All steel removed from rubber is then taken off the conveyer belts to be sent to a third party steel recycling company.
From here we can either bag the 5-10mm rubber or keep feeding it through more rubber shredding machines to get finer granules.
