Tire shredders play a very large role in tire recycling. Usually the first step to converting whole tires into a usable product or landfill material is to shred them. Tires are incredibly durable and resilient to destruction. For this reason, tire shredders tend to have more torque than garbage shredders or wood shredders. The most popular type of tire shredder is called a shear shredder. These are typically slow speed with two shafts of knives. Most of these machines are equipped with built in safeties so that if a foreign object falls into the machine the machine will reverse before serious damage is done to the knives or shafts. Any of these machines may be stationary units that are set in one place and hooked to three phase power or portable machines with engines or generators. Portables are always more expensive than stationary because of the extras needed to make them move and provide power.

This CM Chipper is a great machine for taking preshredded tires and taking them down to a marketable material. We have completely refurbished this machine, including installing new hardened rotors. The rotors are made out of a heat treated 4140 material, rather than the mild steel they are usually built with. We have done this so that when a knife comes off while the machine is in operation and you don’t catch it immediately you shouldn’t harm your knife seats near as easily. In addition this rotor has a multi-stack rotor design meaning it has 1.9, 1.8, and 1.7 knife —-> Read the Rest
