Tire Recycling Made Easy
According to the EPA, there are at least 275 million scrap tires in stockpiles in the United States. These stockpiles present many environmental, health, and safety hazards and represent a serious public nuisance. Stockpiles of tires provide good living conditions for mosquitoes that can spread diseases such as Encephalitis and West Nile Virus and they provide breeding grounds for rats, snakes, and ticks. Waste tires also present a significant fire hazard when they are improperly stored -- these fires can burn for weeks, causing the rubber to decompose into oil, which may pollute ground and surface water.
At this time, there is a lot of interest in using recycled tires for sports surfaces, playground surfaces, athletic tracks, ballistics applications, horse arenas, safety barriers, and other building and landscaping projects. Not only does it have an environmental impact, but tire recycling could be the business you’ve been looking for.
Tri-C Manufacturing has spent years perfecting a high speed industrial shredder. The result has been a shredder that is guaranteed capable of shredding at least 20 tons of tires an hour of primary shreds, year after year. The equipment has been so reliable that one of our shredders is still shredding over 20 tons of tires an hour, that’s after already having shred over 9,000,000 tires. The shredders are capable of being configured for virtually any size shred, and with the optional granule mill, reductions to TDP quality material is made quick and easy.
