EECO has the BWR5-1 tire bead wire remover for sale. The BWR5-1 Bead Wire Remover extracts the steel bead wires from passenger and light truck tire sidewalls. Once the steel bead is removed, the steel and the steel-free rubber sidewall can each be recycled separately, maximizing value.

We have made debeading sidewalls extremely easy with this outstanding machine. Removing the sidewalls from the tread prior to extracting the beads is advised to maximize operator efficiency. To operate, simply:

  1. Place the sidewall onto the tension rollers with the face of the sidewall pointing toward the operator.
  2. Push the green button to start the cycle.
  3. Allow the machine to fully extract the wire bead.
  4. Push the red button to stop the cycle and allow the tension rollers to retract.

There are two cutting devices on this machine: a cutting blade that makes an incision in the bead and a pair of diffuser plates that assist with bead extraction. The cutting blade is made from a specially hardened tool steel that can be ordered from EECO or any vendor that supplies the correct size lathe cut-off tool. The diffuser plates are currently only available from EECO as they are specifically machined and hardened to maximize longevity. The cutting blade and diffusers can all be sharpened many times before needing to be replaced, requiring only an angle grinder, a vise, and some skill.

Since extracted beads are free of their rubber casing, they can be recycled for monetary income at full market value. Buy your tire bead wire remover from EECO today!
