The Green Fire System (GFS) will produce high quality byproducts to meet the demand of industry. To build a GFS waste tire treatment plant, we use the GFS reactor together with a shredder to cut the whole tire in to 50mm pieces and then a rasper is utilized to reduce the piece size to approximately 12mm and remove all wire. Throughput on a GFS plant will be in excess of 50 tons per 24-hour period.
This process will produce four kinds of off-take and by-products. Those products are steel, fuel-oil, low quality carbon black, and 300 mesh high quality carbon black:
- Steel: 18-25% depend on the type of tires
- Fuel-Oil: 40% ~ 50%, depending on the flash point
- Low quality Carbon black: 5% ~ 10%
- 300 mesh high quality carbon black: 20% ~ 35%
Due to the high quality of the byproducts, the payback periods for GFS tire processing plant are very short. One must, however, remember that the “front end” equipment to remove the wire and shred the tire requires a good power supply and ongoing maintenance schedule. Green Fire can advise, recommend and assist with this part of the planning process. The process flow diagram follows.
