German Company Ordered Complete Tire Recycling Plant

Austria-based international technology Group Andritz has received an order from Pyrum Innovations AG to supply a complete tire recycling plant for their thermolysis facility in Dillingen (Germany); start-up is planned for spring 2019.

As reported, the new recycling equipment from the house of Andritz will process car and truck tires with a maximum diameter of 1,200 millimeters and a width of 300 millimeters. In the first section of the plant, the used tires will be shredded by a Universal Rotary Shear UC1300, and in a second and third step the material is granulated further in the Universal Granulators UG1600S and UG1000H.

In the final section of the plant, the Universal Cutting Mill USM1000 will granulate the material precisely into the defined particle size of six millimeters smaller. The complete tire recycling process would be capable of producing approximately one ton of granulate per hour, the technology provider informed. This rubber granulate obtained will be further processed in the thermolysis plant to be converted into oil, gas, and coke. In addition, the Andritz scope of supply includes the entire conveying, separating and screening technology and as well supervision of installation and commissioning work.
