The CM Hybrid Primary Shredder
"The Best of Both Worlds"
CM is proud to kick off its newest success. The CM Hybrid Primary Shredder is the latest round of technology advances from CM to date. The Hybrid is a primary shredder which can process passenger car, truck, and super singles as well as farm and off road tyres. The Hybrid comes equipped with twin 75 horsepower gear motors. This feature provides very low energy consumption running at low RPM's with high torque to process oversized tires with ease.
CM boasts the machines ability to accept a modified version of its patented fixed rotor design with removable rotor technology making this shredder one of the most versatile machines in the industry. Depending on the application, the machine can be fitted with removable rotors equipped with CM patented Holman knives for producing clean cut TDF for the cement and energy industry. For other applications one piece shear blades can be used for processing contaminated tyres or for pre-shredding applications when material size and exposed wire are not critical. CM has also introduced its new "Secure Lock" system which increases the clamping pressure to secure the knife group in the cutting box which increases knife tolerances for cleaner cuts.
The benefits are evident by the overwhelming popularity of the machine by all segments of the industry worldwide. The first Hybrid Shredder was tested and installed over a year ago in the US and is being operated along with other CM equipment by one of the premier producers of high quality refined rubber products. The company produces its own crumb rubber for commercial flooring, sport surfaces and sound insulation products. The CM Hybrid processes 100% truck and OTR tires into 4-6 inch pieces, which is further processed by a CM4R Liberator which cleanly removes the steel and creates clean wire free rubber feedstock. This material is then processed by the CM Dual Drive™ Crackermill yielding high quality fine powders that are used in all of the company's product lines.
Another Hybrid Shredder has recently been installed in France as part of a complete processing line to produce TDF for the cement industry.
The CM Hybrid Shredder is a multi-functional Primary Shredder that blends the "Best Worlds of Both Worlds" to solve the processing challenges of different market segments around the world.
