The TCH15-1 Tread Chopper represents EECO's version of a primary shredder, chopping treads from passenger and light truck tires into a perfect feedstock for use in automated tire-derived aggregate (TDA) and tire-derived fuel (TDF) systems. It completes EECO's tire processing system when combined with our Sidewall Chipping System
The TCH15-1 Tread Chopper requires tires have sidewalls removed using an SR-1 Sidewall Remover and tread cut with a TC35-1 or TC2-1 Tread Cutter prior to being fed into the TCH15-1. A single operator can be expected to run all three machines in sequence at a rate of two tires per minute.
This machine requires a short startup operation before use:
- Twist and release the emergency stop. This supplies power to the whole machine.
- Press the start button for the conveyor.
- Press the start button for the tread chopper.
- Operation can begin once all five lights are on.
Once started, operation is simple. Simply feed a tread into the mouth of the machine.
There are several items on a daily and weekly maintenance schedule that must be performed to ensure safe and efficient operation. Most of the common wear parts (sprockets, chain, bearings, etc.) are standard off-the-shelf parts and available locally; all parts are available from EECO. Buy a tire tread chopper from EECO today!
