Tyre Recycling Process

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;

  1. First we de-bead the scrap tyres using special de-beading machines that cut the beads off the tyres.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
