Eagle International Takes OTR Recycling Around The World
Downsizing and recycling the biggest OTR tires is an operational challenge for mining, construction and earthmoving industries worldwide. Everyday, these industries put some of the biggest OTR tires manufactured to work in harsh, unforgiving conditions that eventually bring these giant tires to the end of their useful tire life.
Eagle International has developed a specific system for downsizing and recycling these OTRs that can and is being employed at sites around the world.
The Eagle system includes:
- project consultation and design
- equipment fabrication, training and installation
- on-site system set-up and training
- broad array of downsizing machinery & equipment
- a three-step downsizing program that includes:
--- Eagle OTR Tire Debeader (Step 1 pull the steel bead sections)
--- Eagle Punch Cutter (Step 2 split the tires through the tread section)
--- Eagle Titan II (Step 3 cut the split tires into sections for further processing)
Installation and On-Site Training in Chile
The Eagle OTR Downsizing machines were installed at the PGA/Peide International Tire Recycling and the Codelco mine site near Calama, Chile.
A fully staffed training team accompanied Eagle International's OTR downsizing machines to the PGA/Peide International Tire Recycling and the Codelco mine site near Calama, Chile to perform onsite training, coordinate installation and serve as a resource in setting up a three-step downsizing program for the recycling project.
The Eagle training team ran the downsizing machines for five days and conducted a week long training module for both the OTR tire processors and Codelco Mine personnel.
In-field training included complete operation of the downsizing equipment with Eagle technicians and engineers coaching operators through each downsizing cycle, answering questions and making adjustments to accommodate specific customer requirements.
A second training component consisted of a series of education presentations for Codelco Mine supervisors and other personnel.
Working in the Field in South Africa
Eagle's OTR Downsizing machinery is in the process of being moved to a very large mine site in South Africa. Onsite training has been completed and additional equipment for a three-unit downsizing system is being readied for another very large mining operation.
