Burnt tire wire

Steel wire Burnt tire wire

Burnt tire wire

The recovery of waste tires, through their combustion, produces a by-product named tire wire scrap or tire derived steel (T.D.S.).

Since the material is formed from thin wires (average diameter of 0,20 – 0,80mm), its surface can easily oxidize due to its morphology.
At visual inspection, the scrap appears as a hank of long wire, but no rubber and fiber contamination is detected since the temperature in the furnace easily reaches 800 °C and all contaminants (rubber/fiber) are completely burned.

From the chemical and physical analysis performed on the scrap, and according to the European Environmental rules, the material has been classified as a special non dangerous waste, listed in green list.

Physical properties:

The scrap is not in shredded form and the surface appears oxidized.

Physical Sate Solid

Tab.1 This data is believed to be accurate and was obtained from recognized technical sources, but cannot be warranted as to its accuracy or sufficiency.

Please note that due to the thermal and cooling treatments, the material has been submitted to, the surface will appear oxidized and may contain a grade od ash and iron oxide. Such components are inherent and adhere to the scrap surface. These impurities, can be sorted, but not fully removed.

ab.2. Average Chemical Composition. Please note that these data are believed to be accurate and representative of an average composition, but these details cannot be warranted as sufficient since the chemical composition can vary sensibly according to the production plant.

As highlighted by the chemical analysis above, burnt tire wire does not contain any dangerous, inflammable, radioactive or explosive substances. The material is free of nonferrous metals, or foreign material of any kind, and excessive rust and corrosion. Please note that due to the scrap dimensions and the material conditions, this particular scrap, should be carefully evaluated by the end users, to confirm its adequate recovery ratio and its suitability to be re-melted in their electric arc furnace.

Conversion of burnt tire scrap into valuable products

The material can be recovered in different processes and recycling plant, such as:

Packing and loading

The information above can be by no means an exhaustive listing of our burnt tire wire characteristics. Please note that according the end user requirements we can select and process a bespoke source that meets your criteria.
The material can be processed and delivered in 20’ Upgrade container loose form, but in strict compliance with the European laws regulating the trans-boundary shipment of waste materials.
