UK’s FJD Tyres Opt for Eldan

Mansfield based FJD Tyres has been in the tyre collection and processing business for around 10 years, gradually building its expertise in the sector.

Recently the company took a big step up in the recycling game by installing an Eldan Multi Purpose Rasper (MPR160T) for processing whole car tyres to equestrian rubber chip material in one pass.

“The Eldan Multi Purpose Rasper has many features which made it the perfect fit for the new recycling line at FJD Tyres” says Eldan’s UK Branch Manager Peter Jones. “It has an exchangeable screen size system, which enables it to produce different output sizes – e.g. tyre derived fuel/TDF or rubber chips. It can also be used to process already shredded tyres.”

FJD Tyres can now process up to 2 ton per hour of whole car tyres to a 20 mm rubber chips free from wire. The steel wire is liberated and removed during production so the customer can sell wire free material.
