Companies Install New Tire Shredders

CM Shredders (Sarasota, Fla.) has installed new shredding systems for companies in Texas and the United Kingdom.

Mining and recycling company Aquamatrix (Wharton, Texas) installed a high-capacity TDF system that can process more than 20 tons of whole tires per hour, CM says, producing clean-cut TDF chips that move along a high-angle conveyor directly into a cement-burning kiln for a large North American cement manufacturer, it says. 

Tyre Renewals (Castle Cary, England) installed the CM Dual Speed Chipping shredder system as part of a new recycling line. The system can process 8 to 12 tons of whole tires per hour, creating a 50-mm chip in a single step, CM says. The chips are suitable for producing tire-derived aggregate or TDF or as a preprocessing step for crumb rubber applications, CM says.

The CM Chipping Shredders turnkey package includes an infeed conveyor, discharge conveyor, sub frame, a panel with programmable logic controls, and stands and platforms. Visit
