ECO Green Equipment Announces New Two­shaft Tyre Shredder

ECO Green Equipment has announced the latest addition to its recycling equipment lineup—the ECO Green Giant – a new two-shaft shredder for tyres.

A Shredder with ‘Aggressive’ Capabilities

This new technology will provide aggressive shredding capabilities to processors who demand the best efficiencies and low maintenance equipment features.

Outfitted with a patent-pending new blade design, the Green Giant features 24 individual knife inserts per blade, which can be rotated for up 12 cutting edges (with one re-sharpening). This blade has an est.imated wear life of up to 3 million PTE (Passenger Tyre Equivalent) is one of the best in the industry according to ECO Green.

With the introduction of the ECO Green Giant, the company claims that operators can now enjoy increased volume production of waste shredding plus a high proportion of output—up to 60 tons per hour. Wear costs per ton are estimated at $1-$3 USD. Reliability, low operational costs, and output consistency will be the key features of this new primary shredder.

Brad Swenson, Manager with ECO Green Equipment on the ECO Green Giant said, “This shredder is the latest in shredding technology and one of the lowest in estimated wear costs. Those who have interest in maximising their returns and investment in waste and tyre shredding production must seriously consider the ECO Green Giant as a primary shredder.”

The ECO Green Giant is also designed with an aggressive low RPM, high torque grinding technology. Powered by two 150 HP motors, the shredder easy cuts through car, truck, and Semi OTR tyres in addition to pre-cut mining OTR tyres. An easy access service panel hydraulically shifts away from the cutting chamber to reveal an impressive set of cutting blades, knives, and two 27” inch diameter rotors. The shredder outputs rough shreds for a variety of secondary applications such as TDF (Tyre Derived Fuel) and other manufactured rubber products.
