Textile fiber cleaning system | clean process into tire recycling plant

As in the case of steel, textile fiber also has aspects to clean in the process flow of a used tyre recycling plant.

Many recycling plants on the international market do not consider the high percentage of rubber granulate residue present in the textile fiber.

All these granules will be dispersed either in landfill or burned in blast furnaces.

The aim to clean textile

Textile fiber cleaning system is an optional module that we propose as solution to significantly reduce the rubber fraction.

In the case of a recycling TIRES Plant, the module called “Clean Textile system” is connected in a closed circuit with the “Refiner” modules.

Cleaning System using low energy consumption and almost no maintenance.

The aim is to separate the small rubber granules, aggregated in the textile fluff, to reduce the weight of the waste.

Benefits obtained are very important:

  1. The recovered rubber granules and powders are reusable in the sales market,
  2. Textile waste will be lightened by 40%; benefit enormously reducing disposal costs.

It can be integrated into any existing tire recycling factory with the only note that machines can receive further product in the cycle and with accurate separation of the dust.
In our economic simulations, the recovery of the optional plant investment is achieved in approximately 10 months.

The capacities of Textile Fiber Cleaning System

The “Clean Textile system” module allows you to obtain the production of fluff with a degree of cleanliness greater than 80% by weight compared to the standard approximately 40%..
This leads to the possibility of being used also for soundproofing applications as a lightening material or for the production of pellets using the REFIBRE process, and in any case with high economic savings in disposal.

The plant can process up to 800 Kg/h of passage cycle to obtain the fraction of lightened textile fiber fluff deriving from the recycling of end-of-life tires with an energy impact of 0.010 kW/Kg.
