Tyre and rubber shredding

Year after year, the volume of waste from used tyres and other rubber keeps growing. Our shredding systems produce tyre chips or granulates according to your exact specifications, even from the toughest rubber and used tyre materials.

Whether the granulate is intended for pyrolysis, hydrolysis or incineration, we can tailor it to your specific needs.

Shredding of tyres & rubber
Specific characteristics and challenges

Rubber waste, and scrap tyres in particular, are a major problem worldwide. Every year, around one billion used tyres need to be disposed of, with the lion’s share being dumped in landfill sites. This is not just damaging to the environment, but also lets the economic potential go to waste that is harboured in these tyres.

In addition to thermal recovery for tyre-derived fuels that are used in cement plants, material recovery is becoming increasingly important for the economical and ecological handling of tyres.

  • A common hurdle when processing waste tyres and rubber is that multi-phase processing requires fairly high investment costs.

  • In addition, waste products such as scrap tyres, conveyor belts, rubberised chains or production waste often contain extraneous matter (such as metal) that needs to be separated.

  • This makes a recycling facility of this sort fairly expensive.

The solution

With our machines for shredding scrap tyres and other rubber waste, we have created a highly economical solution. On the one hand, our shredders are predestined for single-phase shredding. On the other, the running costs are kept low.

  • The long and short of it is that a single shredder is sufficient for shredding the material in question, which greatly reduces investment costs.

  • Thanks to the electromechanical drive concept, operating costs may be reduced by up to 75% compared with diesel-powered machines.

Another advantage is the robustness and performance strength of our shredders – both indispensable factors for extracting usable raw materials from the input material.

Shredders that perfectly match your needs

With the XR class, we have a high-performance, single-shaft shredder on offer that shreds scrap tyres from passenger cars and trucks in a single-phase process, with a throughput of 7 t/h and a granulate size of < 50 mm.

These tyre chips are particularly well suited for thermal recovery in cement plants. Thanks to a magnet-based separator, ferrous wire and steel meshes are separated immediately and may be processed in turn.

2-phase processing yields granulates of < 25 mm. As this machine is also available as a mobile shredder, it may be used flexibly within the site.

Commercial & industrial waste

Commercial and industrial waste is collected separately according to the respective components before being processed and reintroduced into the raw material cycle (recycling), or recovered for thermal recycling or for energetic utilisation (substitute fuels).

Bulky waste

Bulky waste contains many different and valuable resources which can be recovered and reintroduced into the raw material cycle through good material preparation and the correct system technology.

Plastics

The generated plastic waste can be recycled through shredding, washing and subsequent generation of granulate to produce a recyclable material (for the recovery of materials or energetic utilisation).

Metal

Metal shredding is a necessary step in the recycling process, independent of whether your scrap metal comes from the metal-processing industry, the automotive industry, the electrical industry or the waste industry.

Mattresses

Due to their varying material structure, mattresses are difficult to shred and/or recycle. Which is why they are often simply thrown away rather than being put to any further profitable use.
