Shredding end of life tires in one pass
End-of-life tires for cars, trucks, aircraft and heavy-duty vehicles are among the most problematic and difficult waste types to recycle. Impossible for other shredders with the same fuel efficiency and capacity, TANA high-torque shredders make it possible to shred tires to a very homogeneous 80 mm (3″) particle size in just one pass and separate most of the metals during the shredding process. An overband magnet separates most of the metal wires directly from the shredded material flow on the conveyor. Once separated, shredded tires and metals can be sold and reused in many ways.
The particle size can be adjusted by changing the counter-knife setting on the side door and choosing a suitable rotor screen. The bigger the particle size, the higher the capacity. By using the operating program for tires, the machine automatically adjusts itself to the optimal level, thereby protecting the machine and optimizing operating costs.
