CM Commissions a State of Art the Tire Recycling Line in Europe
For Immediate Release –
Columbus McKinnon Corporation, Sarasota, Florida is proud to announce that they have recently completed the installation and commissioning of a state of the art tire recycling system in Poland. The system produces 1 inch minus wire free rubber to be used as feed stock for a new Pyrolysis system. The line is also capable of producing clean steel.
Columbus McKinnon was chosen to supply this system due to its ability to supply a turn-key system capable of processing passenger car and truck tires to 1 inch minus wire free rubber and clean steel with purity level of less than 4% contamination.
For this application, CM utilized its “ZERO WASTE SYSTEM”. The system consists of four major components. A CM Primary Shredder and External Classifier for processing whole passenger car and truck tires to 4-6 inch chips. These chips are being feed to a CM 4R Rotor Liberator that liberates the wire fraction from the rubber as well as sizes the rubber. Liberated materials are processed by the CM Zero Waste wire cleaning system that efficiently separates the rubber and steel fractions. An air handling system is used to capture the nylon material that is separated during process. It is also used to remove excess nylon fiber from the wire. The rubber is being fed directly to silos where it is being stored prior to being feed into the reactors. Due to its purity level the wire is being sold to the steel industry.
The system is operated by an advanced HMI/PLC system that monitors and controls all systems. CM along with the end user of the system have the capability to monitor system and make adjustments to the operating system from the factory or any remote location.
This is the second such installation that CM has supplied in Europe for producing feed stock for the Pyrolysis/Gasification industry.
The system supplied is very similar to a system that would produce feed stock for crumb rubber production, rubber mulch or high quality tire derived fuel.
