ARJES: Large-Scale Tire Recycling Demo

At the German trade fair Recycling­AKTIV & TiefbauLIVE 2023 (RATL 2023, 27th – 29th April, Karlsruhe), the manufacturer of double-shaft shredders ARJES and its sales partner HWH Machines will be showing off the process of pre-shredding truck and tractor tires – one of the first and most crucial steps in the recycling loop.

During the live demo, HWH Machines will present the material handler Fuchs MHL320, which is used to load scrap tires into the twin-shaft shredder. “Its double-edged cylinder bearings on the loading equipment, high-performance cooling system with distributed coolers, and double-row ball bearing slewing ring ensure a long service life.”

Then the stationary twin-shaft shredder ARJES TITAN 900 d-pu will provide for the physical size reduction of the truck and tractor tires. “A high-volume hopper ensures optimum feeding, sending tires past the two shredding shafts as they spin asynchronously and in opposite directions,” the process is described. “The durable tire material, made of tough rubber and wire mesh, demands a lot from the machine – but, as you’ll see on the RATL demo site, the TITAN 900 d-pu is powered by a 405kW diesel engine, making it more than up to the task. Alternatively, the stationary shredder can also run on two strong 160kW electric motors, in which case installation will be designated ‘e-pu’ instead. Both the electric and diesel versions will be shown in the exhibition area of RecyclingAKTIV at booth F254 of ARJES and HWH Machines.”

In addition, two other ARJES sales partners at the trade fair – Kurz Aufbereitungsanlagen and Moerschen Mobile Aufbereitung – will present some new ARJES products in their booth and demo – the IMPAKTOR 250 evo II and EKOMAXX 800.
