CM Tire Recycling Systems and Solutions
Located in Sarasota Florida, CM has been pioneering the development of tire recycling systems since 1982. CM was the first company to develop "turnkey" systems specifically designed for the reduction of scrap tires with the intent on creating valuable end products, commonly known today as tire derived materials.
Our in depth knowledge of markets for products derived from scrap tires has given us the leading edge in developing tire recycling systems that create value for our customers. Over the years we have work closely with our customers, leading industry professionals and numerous industry associates to assist in the development of innovative market driven solutions for tire derived materials.
As early as 1980 CM recognized the value of the "Holman Patent" a patented shredder knife system that created extremely close knife to knife tolerances. This system allowed processors to create high quality tire chips with very little exposed steel. This patent was purchased and coupled with an innovative, highly efficient, patented screening system, which together created a system that produced clean cut chips of consistent size. This innovative technology was incremental to the advancement of the tire derived fuel and tire derived aggregate markets. This concept has been expanded on throughout the years and numerous shredder models and knife designs such as the Multi- StackTM or Double StackTM are available for all applications and markets.
As markets for smaller materials grew CM developed its patented LiberatorTM. As its name denotes the CM Liberator is a highly advanced development in tire reduction and separation technology. As the industry was developing ways to create clean rubber, CM was designing a system to create clean steel. This philosophy greatly differed from most. However, CM engineers knew that if clean steel was produced it could be sold to steel mills creating an additional revenue steam thereby eliminating costly disposal fees. We also knew that if we could produce clean steel, then the byproduct, clean rubber, would also be of exceptional quality as well.
Introduced in 2002 the CM Liberator has lived up to its reputation, of liberating processors from the confines of the past. Not only, does it produce high quality steel at impressive production rates, the rubber produced by its unique pinching, ripping and tearing configuration produces an impressive distribution of rubber sizes. In many cases, processors have forgone the additional milling and grinding systems and instead, have installed additional screening and cleaning capabilities to take advantage of all product sizes produced. This allows them to produce products for all major markets for tire derived materials.
CM has installed over 215 tire recycling systems in 15 countries throughout the world. Our systems process in excess of 500 million tires per years.
