CM Shredders has announced the installation of a new state-of-the-art, high-capacity automated tyre shredding system for the Southeastern Public Service Authority (SPSA) in Suffolk, Virginia, USA.

CM Shredders Install New Shredding Systems for SPSA

The new system, which can process passenger car, truck and light OTR tyres, features CM‘s brand-new HT-250 Hybrid Primary Shredder integrated with a high-volume automatic infeed system. During the runoff test, the system processed in excess of 30 tons per hour.

“An array of cameras and advanced sensors are custom programmed to communicate with both the shredder and the conveyance systems allowing the machine to self-meter at high volumes. The operators can view the live camera feeds remotely, allowing them to focus on other tasks as the machine keeps an optimal speed and capacity on its own,” said Mario Vazquez, CM Shredders Sales & Marketing Director.

“With high capacities and automation come greater chances of a foreign object such as rocks and rims making it through initial screening protocols,” added Vazquez. For added protection, the CM system has an extreme impact protection system. However, it is not accomplished with an old-style mechanical clutch. It is achieved with CM Shredder‘s advanced electrical controls system. This system provides a torque limiting function that can instantaneously detect and respond to an extreme impact and is much more efficient than an old-style mechanical system. Therefore, no clutch or fan cooler is required, nor do they have to be maintained, reducing maintenance costs and downtime.

“I’ve dealt with machinery all my life, and this is the most impressive piece of equipment I’ve ever been a part of purchasing,” said Dennis Bagley, who serves as SPSA’s Deputy Executive Director.
