Shredding of tyres is a specialized job due to the toughness and elasticity of tyres. A Single shaft shredder does this job best. Tyre recycling process uses a de-beading machine, pre-shredder, metal separator, and finally a fine shredder. The output is the reinforced steel and rubber crumbs.
The rubber crumbs can be used to make fresh rubber or can be used for conversion to oil through pyrolysis.
Baler is another useful equipment in tyre recycling industry.
ResposeIndia currently makes the shredders for tyre recycling. Other machines to be launched soon.
