Gradeall’s Tyre Baler Conveyor helps improve tire collectors’ workflow
Gradeall International – a renowned supplier of tyre bailing and tyre recycling technology from Northern Ireland – reports that its Tyre Baler Conveyor System is going to a large tyre baling facility centre in mainland Europe.
Gradeall says its Tyre Baler Conveyor reduces the strain on operators by:
- Bringing the tyres to operators at waist height,
- Reducing the strain of picking tyres up,
- Keeping the process cleaner as operators are up off the ground.
This Conveyer will be feeding operators at two Gradeall MK2 Tyre Balers simultaneously.
Loading a tyre baler is a physically demanding task, requiring the operator to bend down and pick up over 100 tyres per bale. Throughout the day this can quickly become tiring and lead to sore backs, and staff downtime. Operators can also be slowed down by the need to move about in search for tyres.
Gradeall says the solution to these problems is the Tyre Baler Conveyor. Designed to work with either the MK2 or MK3 Tyre Balers, this conveyor includes a slide out loading platform which places the operator at the ideal height to load tyres into a baler chamber. The platform slides out of the way to open the baler doors for tying and the initial floor level loading stage.
With a large capacity 17m3 hopper and tall sides the conveyor is able to hold enough tyres to produce multiple bales, the loading platform is at the ideal height for the tyre baler as it requires no bending down to pick up or load tyres.
According to the manufacturer, the conveyor itself is a chain-driven conveyor which provides slip-free drive, without any tendency to roll off. A foot-operated pedal activates the conveyor at a slow safe speed bringing the tyres to the operator where they can be conveniently lifted to the baler.
With bolt-on side panels and hopper section the conveyor can be adapted to your site layout, and specific preferred loading requirements.
