SSI Shredding Systems Announces the T160 Tri-Shear™
For the past several years, there has been an increasing global interest in large OTR tire processing solutions. We're talking about the really big mining tires, such as 40.00r57, 53/80r63 and 59/80r63 tires. These huge tires can be 4 meters tall and weigh 4,200 - 4,700 kgs (9,200 - 10,400 lbs) when they're worn out. Whole tire processing has not been cost effective, and cutting mining tires into 25 - 30 pieces so they can be processed in machinery designed for truck and wheel loader tires isn't cost effective either.
As a solution, SSI Shredding Systems is pleased to announce the introduction of the T160 Tri-Shear™, the perfect balance between both ends of the processing spectrum. The T160 can process debeaded and pre-cut tires that are still in 450 kg (1,000+ lb) "chunks", so the front end preconditioning process only needs to make 8 - 11 pieces out of the largest mining tires.
The new T160 produces material that can pass through its internal 150mm (6") sizing screen at 17 - 20 tons per hour, and it makes perfect feedstock for downstream wire separation and granulation machinery, such as our Uni-Shear® SR900 single rotor grinder.
