Intrduction to textile fibre cleaning and compaction

The textile fibre extracted from the tyres grinding is a product that date it has always been neglected under the terms of business plan.
This consideration is made both in the eyes of low percentage contained in the tyre and in the eyes of low receptivity of a product on which one has not try to obtain the best finish.
TIRES S.p.A. has pointed to find a valid solution that can give the right contribution to a material, which is considered waste for dump and it has tried to fill up the need to create a receptive outlet to the best cost.
First of all, the textile fibre commonly extracted, has variable percentages of 40-60% in weight of rubber residuals.
Given that the product has like present outlet the dump, it needs to consider that a processing of tyres of 18.000 t/year involves an extraction of textile fibre of 5% of the volume, increased further of 5% of rubber from the residual.
It needs to pay the double to can dispose the waste with onerous problems even from the point of view of the volume.
TIRES optional is able to totally clean in any production system every rubber residual on the fibre component, decreasing the contamination of rubber under 1%.
As previously underlined, on the working of 18.000 t/year one will obtain a separation of textile fibre not treated of 1.800 t/year, where it will be recovered about 900 t/year of rubber, which will be destined to the raw material production inside the production cycle.
According to these numbers, it appears the big save that will involve the use of technologically advanced solution of TIRES S.p.A.!
Moreover, the textile fibre after to be treated, it is automatically compacted in the cleaning circuit and it is made very suitable to the use like alternative fuel, so excluding the dump from the recovery circuit of the tyre.
That means to recycling!
