Used tires are among the largest and most problematic sources of waste today, due to the large volume produced and their durability. The same characteristics which make waste tires a waste problem also make them one of the most re-used waste materials. Recycled tire chips can be used for TDF (Tire Derived Fuel) which is a fuel used for heat plants and cement ovens or for equestrian (i.e. rubber mixed with sand or sawdust used in the horse industry as ground in the stable or at the tracks). Rubber granulate is reused in e.g. sports fields, artificial turfs, rubber mats and molded products. Rubber powder can be reused in rubber paved asphalt. The recovered steel can be smelted and reused just like non-recovered steel. Finally, the liberated textile has a very high effective burning value and can therefore be mixed with other materials in order to increase that material’s effective burning value.
Eldan Recycling have tire recycling solutions for processing of all types of tires; whole car and truck tires including mining tire, super singles, earth mover tires, OTR etc. The capacity of the systems ranges from 1.500-8.000 kg/production hour. The system is "multi-size” which means that the size of rubber granulate easily can be changed by merely altering the screen combination. During production of rubber granulate flexibility is a very important factor since the market demand of various fraction sizes will vary.
Within tire recycling the solutions from Eldan are recognized to offer highest production output quality and flexibility as well as lowest operating and production costs.
