Rim crushers, such as this Portable Model Rim Crusher, make tire salvage and recycling an easier process by completely separating and crushing the steel from the rubber wheel. The machine compresses the whole tire, thereby crushing the rim, and then decompresses, making the steel rim easy to lift out from the rubber tire surrounding it prepares the rubber tire to be cut and shredded down to make reusable rubber products. This model is powered by a 24 hp Honda engine and comes equipped with a hydraulic engine and controls. It has had very little prior use and is in great condition.
Once the steel rim has been removed, tires are sent through a tire cutter, which is used to quarter tires at a quick rate. Use of a tire cutter eliminates whole tire pick-up fees by allowing shops to handle their own tire disposal. Once the cut tires are received at a tire recycling plant, they are processed and refined using size-reduction techniques, such as sending the tires through a shredder or grinder. The rubber is taken down to various crumb sizes, used to produce different products, depending on the size. Smaller particles are used for a variety of industrial, athletic field, paving and landscaping applications, while larger pieces are used in civil engineering, as a substitute for stone aggregates or as fuel to power kilns, mills and power plants.
A machine such as the Eidal Model 400 Vertical Grinder is the perfect piece of equipment to reduce the scrap tires to rubberized mulch in order to be recycled. Beyond tire and rubber shredding, this grinder is also ideal for processing wood, electronics and metal. The grinder can process up to 25 tons per hour of wet or dry solid waste, wood and dunnage material, pallets, electronics, scrap metals, tin cans and non-ferrous metal. The Eidal Model 400 Vertical Grinder is powered by two 200 hp, 460 V, 3-phase electric motors. It has a 6’ diameter with a 70” wide x 82” high hopper opening. Reduction sizes can be varied to suit material or end user without screens or grates through progressive grinding.
Getting a wide variety of sized and shaped material down to a consistent and more manageable size is the first step in recycling that product. And, with many states passing ordinances on the proper way to dispose of waste and regulations on what can and cannot dumped in a landfill, the shredding industry is more profitable than ever. Dating back to the 1960s, Eidal International has been one of the leading and most depended on shredder manufacturers in the world. In the 1990s, the Eidal International shredder line was introduced in Asia, becoming one of the first shredder manufacturers to make their type of shredders in China and India. Eidal specializes in systems strong enough to process tires and separate the rubber from the steel and fiber, process hazardous waste into neutral compounds and recycle all materials from the waste stream. Throughout time, the Eidal International line of shredders and recycling systems has expanded and developed into its status today as a world leader in the recycling equipment field.
