Energy Power Resources

Columbus McKinnon Corporation, Sarasota Florida Operations, is pleased to announce the sale of its first new Primary Shredder. The machine has been sold to Energy Power Resources located in Bristol, England and will be operated by Tyre Collection Services Ltd in West Midlands, England. The machine is the first of its kind to be used in the United Kingdom marketplace.

The new Primary Shredder has been under design for the past two years and was first introduced at the ITRA Trade Show and Exposition in Nashville, Tennessee in April 2001. This larger, more robust machine is capable of processing steel belted passenger car, truck, super single, farm implement and light off-road tires. The system can be configured either to process whole tire for disposal or as a pre-processor to pre-cut larger tires for further processing. Unlike many pre-shredders, it has also been design to work as a stand-alone unit in conjunction with a screen to produce chips of multiple sizes for TDF, Civil Engineering or Crumb Rubber applications.

The machine is capable of processing 100% truck and super single tires at a rate of 14 tons per hour on a single pass or 5 tons per hour when producing 2"/50MM chips. The machine's unique twin drive system utilizes dual 100 hp motors and is extremely efficient.

The machine's knife system utilizes the patented CM "Double Stack" ™ knife arrangement that allows users the ability to re-use knives multiple times, therefore, drastically reducing the operational costs of the machine.

Michael Playdon, International Sales Manager, for CM was quoted as saying "This installation is particularly significant to CM due to the fact that the machine was specifically designed for processing European type super single tires. It demonstrates CM's commitment and dedication to providing our European customers with a robust and reliable alternative to processing these heavier type of tires".

Columbus McKinnon Corporation is the world's leading manufacturer of systems that are specifically designed for the reduction of scrap tires of all sizes.
