This multi-stage system is capable of processing passenger car, truck tires and super single truck tires at production rates of 12,000+ lbs. per hour. The system is another of many systems provided by CM for the process of crumb rubber and the first complete front-end process system for cryogenic crumb process system and the first of its kind designed as a closed loop system to minimize waste, maximize steel cleanliness while maintaining impressive throughput rates.
The Size Reduction Stage consists of a CM Primary Shredder with screening capabilities to produce a 4 to 6 inch tire chip feed stock that is fed to a CM Liberator for the next stage of the process.
The Steel Liberation Stage (SLS) is designed to receive the 4 to 6 inch tire chips and utilizes a CM4R Liberator. The Liberator is feed by an independent feed bin which meters the material for maximum throughput. Once the steel and rubber are liberated the system utilizes a clean wire system to sort and separate the rubber and clean wire. The clean steel is sold to a steel mill and the rubber fractions are passed on for further processing through a screening system, where material ideal for mulch markets or other ambient markets can be screened out of the material flow while the balance of the material is sent to a surge bin for processing in the cryogenic system.
