Guahan Waste Control (GWC) located in Barrigada, Guam is the islands largest company for all of Guam's waste management services including; hauling, landfill operations and recycling initiatives. In the past Guam has stockpiled tires and when the markets allow they have baled and shipped them wherever they could find an off-taker. However, these markets are unstable and the tires have been piling up, causing alarm for disease and fire concerns.
The CM Dual Drive Chip Shredder is now driven by dual 90 kW gear motors that work togother to process passenger car, light truck and SUV tires whole or, with other shredders as part of existing systems.
CM Primary shredder and external classification system increases efficiency for National Rubber Technologies
At the end of 2010, CM North America completed an installation of a primary tire shredder and external classification system for National Rubber Technologies North America (NRT) in Toronto. This stage-one system can process whole car, truck and super single tires up to 60-inch in diameter, down to a four- to six-inch shred at a rate of eight to 10 tph.
Although geographically small, the islands that make up the country of New Zealand discard as many as four million tires each year. Until now those tires have been discarded all over the countryside, tossed away onto farms, piled up as silos, or dumped along roadways and other rural properties, creating serious ﬁre hazards and mosquito and rodent infestations. All in all, the piles of tires are a major liability and intense eyesore on the landscape.
The newly designed CM2R Liberator is a smaller, more affordable two-rotor tire wire liberating unit that follows on the success of Columbus Mckinnon’s larger CM4R model. According to the company, this zero waste TDF (Tire Derived Fuel) system is capable of separating wire from rubber tires in the purest, cleanest form possible, producing wire-free ground rubber, and clean steel.
A recent installation of interest has a CM Liberator working for Pulaski County Regional Solid Waste Management District, in the State of Arkansas. The system is working at the County’s authorized processing facility for the district, Davis Rubber Company, and is used to process steel belted passenger car and truck tire chips to minus 3/4 wire-free material. Davis Rubber Company, whose primary market is tire derived fuel (TDF) and Tire Derived Aggregate (TDA), both of which are used in Civil Engineering applications, found themselves in a situation facing many TDF producers today. That is – what to do with the wired material not suitable for TDF when other market opportunities are not available?After one and one half years of successful operation with his CM Tire Shredder, Mr. Davis discussed with Columbus McKinnon a way in which he could drive his costs lower by eliminating the waste generated by the separation of the high steel content material removed from the TDF flow by his cross belt magnetic separator.
