Shredding tires is a prosperous business


Is your yard filled with piles of tires? And are you wondering what do with them?TANA Shark - shredding of tires

Many recycling companies and landfills are struggling with used tires. Tires are among the largest and most problematic sources of waste and because of their shape and large volume they take up a lot of valuable space.  However, tires are also one of the most reusable types of waste materials, as the rubber is very resilient and can be re-used in many ways.

Here are a few ideas on how you could sell your shredded tires:

  • Asphalt companies buy large quantities of shredded rubber crumbs to mix with their hot melt asphalt to make pavements cheaper.

  • Shredded tires are perfect for increasing the burning value of RDF in incineration plants, as they can really maximize their process by utilizing a rubber mixture.

  • Other road construction companies purchase large quantities of medium sized shredder tires to use in road beds for minimizing vibrations and for highway sound barriers.

  • Pure rubber can also be granulated and used in the foundations of race tracks, playing grounds and garden beds. It is used in bark mulch to hold in the water in order to prevent weeds from growing.

  • Tire manufacturers are always looking for recycled tires that can be reused to manufacture new tires.

  • Landfills can use shredded tires for leachate lines and to help them build new cells.

  • Steel mills can use shredded tires as a carbon source by replacing the coal or coke during manufacturing.

  • Rubber tires can be used in barriers such as collision reduction, erosion control, rainwater runoff, wave action that protects piers and marshes.

How can TANA Shark help you process your waste tires?

Thanks to our top-niche cutting and shredding technology, many of the TANA Shark waste shredders are mainly used to shred tires, as our technology allows us to cut tires into small pieces with the lowest possible fuel consumption. We can easily produce all types of sizes, from small particles to medium or larger pieces depending on your needs. Different types of screens allow us to modify the production in just 10 minutes.

The used tires industry is very important to me. I think that in Calgary they have factories that do it.

Hi My name is mr james' i want to share my experience with the world on how i got my ex lover back and saved my marriage… I was married for 10years with 3kids and we lived happily until things started getting ugly and we had fights and arguments almost every time… it got worse at a point that she filed for divorce… I tried my best to make her change her mind & stay with me cause i loved her with all my heart and didn’t want to loose her but everything just didn’t work out… she moved out of the house and still went ahead to file for divorce… I pleaded and tried everything but still nothing worked. The breakthrough came when someone introduced me to this wonderful, great spell caster who eventually helped me out… I have never been a fan of things like this but just decided to try reluctantly cause I was desperate and left with no choice… he cast a strong spell and used roots and herbs… Within 3 days she called me and was sorry for all the emotional trauma she had cost me, moved back to the house and we continue to live happily, the kids are happy too and we are expecting our fourth child. I have introduced him to a lot of couples with problems across the world and they have had good news… Just thought I should share my experience cause I strongly believe someone out there need’s it… You can email him on via email Don’t give up just yet, the different between ‘Ordinary’ & ‘Extra-Ordinary’ is the ‘Extra’ so make extra effort to save your marriage/relationship if it’s truly worth it.
