Waste tires have great value and can turn them into alternative fuels used in cement kilns, power plants, steel mills, called TDF(Tire Derived Fuel), which reduces threats from unlawful stockpiling, while also creating economic profits.
How is TDF produced?
In simple terms, processing of discarded scrap tires into TDF consists of three main steps: shredding, screening and metal removal. The level of each is determined by the end user's needs and specifications (i.e., size of shreds and amount of metal removed). For shredding of scrap tires, equipment for tire processing generally comes in two types - slow speed and high-speed shredder. Slow speed shredder or rotary shear shredder is used to produce the larger chip sizes suitable for applications such as cement kilns, shearing the tire into 2 to 5-inch size shreds and liberating between 2 and 10 percent of the bead wire contained within the tire. The high speed single shaft shredder contains a rotor equipped with knives that shred the tire until they are of desirable size (e.g., less than 1 inch). Approximately 50 to 90 percent of the steel wire can be liberated using high speed shredders and magnets.
