After sorting, the remaining light fraction is buffered in a round silo with bottom agitator. The material is conveyed from the round silo by means of two double trough screws and the proven swiveling waste proportioning screws to two flat die presses 45-1250. The capacity of the pelleting plant is up to 16 t/h of alternative fuel materials.
A waste tire granulation plant delivered in the previous year was put into operation in Saudi Arabia. The plant consists of a pre-crushing plant with shredder and for the first time a pan grinder mill 60-1250 for pre-grinding. Pre-grinding with the pan grinder mill demonstrates the versatility of the KAHL flat die press. Two downstream parallel granulation presses 60-1250 process the crushed tires to high-quality rubber crumb and steel with high purity. With an annual capacity of up to 25,000 t, the plant is one of the largest in the Middle East.
Another waste tire granulation plant with a tire input capacity of 2.5 t/h was put into
operation near Gdansk, Poland.
In Northern Italy the second waste tire recycling plant has already been put into operation. After start of operation, the company is with its two plants the largest waste tire recycler in Italy with a market share of about 20 % and a total capacity of about 50,000 t/a.
