Columbus McKinnon Corporation the world’s leading manufacturer of tire shredding equipment has developed new shredding technology to adapt to the ever changing markets in the tire recycling industry as well as expand into new markets beyond tires. Since entering into the business in 1982, all CM tire shredders have exclusively used Holman Patent Technology. The CM knives have very close knife to knife tolerances that allows the machine to produce cleanly cut tire chips ideal for TDF. However, with the growth of the Crumb Rubber Industry shredder requirements are evolving. Shredders within these applications are used for volume reduction to prepare the tire for additional processing allowing for other cutting technologies to be considered. The CM Hybrid Primary Shredder is built for multiple uses within the tire industry as well as other applications. By using Removable Rotor Technology the machine becomes a “Hybrid” system. The machine can use Holman Patent Technology that has been adapted to a Removable Rotor which works well for tire applications as well as other applications where close cutting tolerances are required. It also accepts single piece shear shredder knives that are common for shredding general waste applications. This combination allows the machine to be versatile within the industry. The shredder boast high volumes of output and can process everything from passenger car tires, truck, super singles, small OTR’s and pre-processed mining and earth mover tire pieces as heavy as 500 pounds.

The South African tyre industry produces over 10 million waste tyres every year which end up as pollutants and create breeding grounds for disease-spreading mosquitoes. There are 60 million waste tyres lying in stockpiles (many illegal and unsafe) or in the South African countryside. South Africans are paying the cost of ignoring this problem and it’s a cost that will rise over time. The REDISA Plan aims to remove waste tyres from the South African environment while at the same time alleviating some of the extremely high unemployment in South Africa. The basis for this is to subsidise the collection and recycling process by attaching a value to the collecting of waste tyres. Fuelled by this incentive, individuals and small entrepreneurs will then seek out and remove tyres from their community and deliver them to a collection point. A key element of the REDISA Plan is that it will target small businesses in the area where they are needed most: in the informal and SMME (Small Micro and Medium Enterprise) sectors. This will allow REDISA to address the waste tyre problem, while simultaneously creating over 10,000 jobs for South Africans.

NITRALIFE continues its steady advance in inflating tyres with Nitrogen instead of air. Long used in trucking and offered by Tyre Dealers to the public this market has consolidated and grown. New growth has come in Mining where a top mining group no longer permits heavy trucks, theirs or their contractors, on their mines without the tyres being inflated with Nitrogen as a result of tyre explosion fatalities. This resulted from tyre tests being done by them where air and nitrogen inflated earthmover tyres were tested to destruction. The air inflated tyres exploded within 17 minutes while the same tyres inflated with Nitrogen went past the hour mark showing no sign of distress. Also new is the move by filling stations to offer a free Nitrogen top-up service to customers filling up at their stations. This was started by Total but is now also being done by many Engen, Caltex, BP, Shell and Sasol stations. This is in recognition that over 15,000 motorists per month have their car tyres filled with nitrogen at tyre dealers nationally and would no longer want their tyres topped up with air. Fuel sales have accordingly increased at these sites.

Trident International P Ltd is a Star-Export House that specializes in the supply and distribution of industrial tyres, rubber tracks and pads for construction equipment, material handling equipment, and other specialized infrastructure-related equipment. Trident offers a wide range of sizes that conform to international standards and are distributed in over 35 countries which include the Americas, Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific. Trident has developed a range of Solid Tyres specifically designed for Skid Steer Loaders, Aerial Work Platforms, Wheel Loaders, Container Handlers, etc. These machines are normally fitted with pneumatic tyres that are prone to punctures and fast wear. This result in losses associated with frequent repair and replacement, downtime and leads to additional costs associated with excess inventory of spares. While the use of solid tyres in the material handling segment (i.e. forklifts) is well accepted, the use of solid tyres on construction and other specialized equipment is a relatively new phenomenon. However, this has been gaining acceptance as the benefits become more apparent. Solid Tyres are puncture-proof and are made from highly wear resistant rubber compounds. This gives them a lifespan three to five times that of conventional pneumatic tyres. Innovative features include the use of sidewall apertures for shock absorption when moving over irregular surfaces and debris thereby providing a smooth and stable ride. These tyres also significantly improve occupational safety as there is no possibility of tyre blowout related accidents. Besides providing the user complete peace of mind, these zero maintenance tyres are a sound investment for demanding applications such as construction, scrap and recycling yards, steel mills, solid waste management, ports, mining, etc.

VIGIA specialises in on-board tyre inflation systems Loss of pressure in a tyre or just lack of discipline in tyre management will result in excessive tyre costs and unnecessary breakdowns. A VIGIA system will ensure that your truck gets to its destination safely and on time. If an air leak develops in any of the tyres the VIGIA system will supply air to the tyre, on a continuous basis and while driving, ensuring that the tyre remains inflated until the truck reaches its destination. This saves not only an expensive breakdown, the time lost in repair and the complications of road side safety but also conserves the tyre casing for repair and future re-treading. Tyres are one of the main expenses in any long distance fleet and underinflation of only 350kPa will reduce the effective tyre life by a shocking 25%. Under-inflation in general accounts for 80% of retread separations, cuts, bruises, flats and blowouts VIGIA’s high quality components are built to last and their tyre pressure system is the systems of choice for durability, safety and reliability. Distributed for more than 20 years in many countries around the world, VIGIA stands ready to handle the most strenuous demands in the toughest environments, again and again.
