Prevent your profit from turning into scrap

Millions of tires are discarded in landfills every year. Instead, they can be shredded to extract and recycle the steel they contain. Shredded tires are also used in construction, landscaping, and playground surfaces.

Because tires contain metal, the shredding process itself can damage costly shredding equipment. During the shredding process, a tramp metal detector provides an economical and reliable method of protecting expensive shredders, crushers, conveyors, and other equipment from potentially costly damage from wheel bolts, which reduces downtime and ensures the  process stays operational. In general, tramp metal detectors are easy to install, operate, and calibrate, with no need for special tools or instruments.
