* Eldan Scandinavian Recycling
Maryland Environmental Service of Annapolis, Maryland, U.S., has purchased a processing system for its new tyre recycling facility in Western Baltimore County, Maryland. The E-4000t unit manufactured by Eldan Scandinavian Recycling A/S of Faaborg, Denmark, and sold by Wendt Corp. of Tonawanda, NewYork, U.S., will reportedly enable the plant to convert 1.5 million scrap tyres each year into crumb rubber.
The system features a Super Chopper that reduces passenger and truck tyres to 6 inch chunks. A Heavy Rasper converts these chunks into chips smaller than Â¾ inch while liberating more than 95% of tyre wire for recovery by a magnet. The chips are subsequently granulated to minus Â¼ inch via the system’s Fine Granulator No. 1 and then to minus 1/8 inch by Granulator No. 2. The finished product is designed to be more than 99.9% free of liberated steel and fibre, says Wendt.
