The TCH15-1 Tread Chopper represents EECO's version of a primary tire shredder, chopping and shredding treads from passenger and light truck tires into a perfect feedstock for use as tire-derived aggregate (TDA) and tire-derived fuel (TDF). It completes EECO's tire processing system when combined with our Sidewall Chipping System. If you are in the market for AFFORDABLE TIRE SHREDDING, then this is the machine for you!
The TCH15-1 Tread Chopper requires tires to have their sidewalls removed using an SR-1 Sidewall Remover or Pocket Sidewall Remover (PSR1-1 or PSR1-2) and tread cut with a TC35-1 or TC2-1 Tread Cutters 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!
