Columbus McKinnon Corporation, Sarasota Florida a world leading manufacturer of tire recycling systems has sold one of its new Hybrid shredders to Dundee Tyre Group of Carlisle England. CM has numerous installations throughout the United Kingdom however, this is the first of its new Hybrid Shredders to be sold in the UK.
Dundee Tyre is no stranger to operating CM Tire Shredders. In 2011 the company installed one of the companies tire shredding systems. That system is capable of processing passenger car tires to 50 X 50 mm chips that are sold as tire derived fuel and feed stock for crumb rubber production.
The new Hybrid shredder at Dundee Tyre will be used exclusively to process truck tires, farm tires and off road tires. This will allow the company to expand its collection operations and achieve its growth initiatives.
Simon Pluckrose the Managing Director and Principle of Dundee Tyre said that one of the many contributing factors to purchasing the Hybrid Shredder was that the original machine from CM has been extremely reliable over the past 7 years and that service from CM has been world class. Also the CM Hybrid Shredder was designed specifically to process truck tires therefore it is extremely well built and heavy duty. With CM's patented knife system with replaceable inserts the machines has the lowest operating cost in the industry.
The knives on Dundee Tyre's original machine can be sharpened and reused 3 times. Those knives will then be repurposed and reused on the new Hybrid shredder where they are capable of being used 4 more times. Having shredders where the knives can be reused 7 times has a drastic impact on operating costs and allows Dundee Tyre to be very competitive in the market place.
