Tires

Reliable recycling of used tires

Turning old tires into a valuable resource 

Old tires, if processed correctly, can be used to generate heat and recover reusable materials. They contain rubber, steel and textile fibers. Once the rubber has been separated from the extraneous materials, rubber flour and granulate can be generated out of it. This raw material can be used in road construction, for example. In step one, the tires need to be cut up to create shreds. BHS-Sonthofen offers its proven rotary shear (type VR) for this task.

For all tires up to commercial vehicle size

All high-volume tires, such as EM tires (for construction, forestry and earthmoving equipment), commercial trucks and larger car tires, must be pre-shredded before they can be recycled. Our crushers can handle tires with a diameter of up to 3 m. This includes split tires used for heavy-duty construction equipment. The rotary shear (type VR) reduces the volume of the input material to particle sizes of less than 100 mm. Due to the screening technology in use and the recirculation of oversized particles, the shear consistently produces a uniform bulk solids end product that is optimally suited for further processing. In emerging markets, the shreds are processed into refuse-derived fuels, for example.
