Scrap Tires to TDF with AIShred ShreddersScrap Tires to TDF with AIShred Shredders

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

Waste Tire as an Alternative Fuel of Cement Production ProcessWaste Tire as an Alternative Fuel of Cement Production Process

Conventional fuels like hard coal and lignite that are commonly used fuels in cement production have high specific CO2 emission values (Hard coal: ~95 kg CO2/GJ; Lignite: ~98 kg CO2/GJ). Consequently, substituting these with other fuels having lower specific emssion values (e.g. fuel oil or natural gas) or with other sources that can satisfy the thermal demand of the processes is an effective way of reducing CO2 emissons. Principally, in cement kilns conventional fossil fuels can be substituted up to 100% by alternative fuels. Nevertheless, there are certain technical limitations like the calorific value, the moisture content, and the content of side products like trace elements or chlorine. The calorific value of most organic material is comparatively low (10 – 18 GJ/t). For the main firing of the cement kiln an average calorific value of at least 20-22 GJ/t is required, meaning that high calorific alternative fuels are mostly used in the main firing. Waste tyres can be used as a fuel in cement kilns. Waste
