1. What is GLP Machinery mainly for
We, GLP, is mainly for providing room temperature recycle waste
tire equipments. With our technology, we can separate the tire into
steel wire products, fiber, and rubber granue or rubber powder.
Which acheived the most economical way of recycling.
2. What kind of technology we are applying
Rubber is difficult to recycle due to the procedure known as
"vulcanization, " which it undergoes to attain its springy,
flexible nature. Vulcanization is a curing process that involves
adding sulfur to rubber, which creates stronger bonds between the
rubber polymers. Due to the vulcanization method, tires are
difficult to melt for reuse and are therefore typically broken down
by a mechanical process.
What we are doing is to R&D new procedures to recycle the
rubber tires with economical ways and easy handling methods. With
our new procedure, we can recycle the tire under room temperature.
No matter car tire, truck tire, even engineering truck tires with
diameter of 3000mm.
Initially, whole tires are treated by special equipment which cut
or take away of the bead of the tire. And then shred into strips
using rugged machines. The shredded material is then placed in
grinding machines that use rotors to further shred the material and
remove the steel fibers from the tire. Some processors also use
powerful magnets to further draw metal from the rubber.
Once the bulk of the steel is removed, the strips are placed into
granulators. Depending on the consistency desired by the end user
of the shredded tires, the rubber can be milled into assorted sizes
of granules that are useful in a number of industries.
While less common, some tires are recycled through a freezing
process using liquid nitrogen. After being frozen, the tires are
crushed and then milled in a similar process described above.
