Tyres are considered one of the most neglected sources of recycling materials and because of that, rubber waste has been increasing in the past years. Due to the size and high cost of moving worn tyres from the original place to the processing factory or facility, the choice made was to simply dump the tyres.
Recent studies show a total of 1 billion and 1.8 billion worn tyres were disposed of every year, and since rubber isn’t biodegradable, this poses a serious environmental issue.
We at Gradeall are an environmentally conscious company and strive to make good choices which reduce our negative impact on the environment. We also strive to allow our customers to do the same with machinery that reduces their carbon footprint.
For more information on our environmental impact you can read our Environmental Policy here. By using our Inclined Baler Conveyor in partnership with our Mark 2 tire balers, your business can recycle rubber waste in a cost effective and efficient way.
The process of loading a tyre baler is known to be physically demanding, requiring the operator to bend forward and pick up over 100 tyres per bale. The repeated motion can lead to fatigue, and back-related pains ultimately leading to staff downtime and costs for the company. The mere act of having to search for tyres is also a time-consuming one, any time spent not loading the baler is time wasted. The inclined tyre baler conveyor aims to resolve these issues.
Designed to work with a pair of MK2 tyre balers, the aim of this system is to ensure that balers are always being loaded and earning money with the absolute minimum of downtime.
The MK2 tyre baler can produce up to 6 PAS108 compliant tyre bales (between 400-500 tyres) per hour meaning with the Inclined Tyre Baler Conveyor set up also, around 1000 tyres can be processed per hour. This combination of the conveyor and the set of MK2 tyre balers creates a highly efficient tyre waste solution for businesses processing a high volume of tyres.
The MK2 Tyre Baler also removes heavy bales using chain release to help with the heavy load of the compressed tyres. This system aims to reduce the physically demanding elements of tyre baling to encourage the recycling of rubber waste.

The benefits of the MK2 tyre baler are doubled when used in tandem with the Inclined Tyre Baler Conveyor. For more information on how the MK2 tyre baler helps businesses dealing with rubber waste, you can read about the experiences of our previous clients. London Tyre Disposal and other customers have seen the benefits of the MK2 tyre baler which we pair with the Inclined Tyre Baler Conveyor.
The Inclined Tyre Baler Conveyor Feeds tyres directly from the side of a truck into the hopper of the conveyor. The ground-level hopper is at the ideal height to accept tyres, no need to load onto the ground and then use loading shovels to pick up tyres in multiple scoops that accepts the tyres in one go. A huge time saver in itself. The Conveyor system reduces the physically demanding elements of baling and recycling tires making the process more efficient and reducing the likelihood of injury to staff leading to downtime costs.
Once loaded into the hopper, the Inclined Tyre Baler Conveyor transports tyres directly to workers loading up two MK2 tyre balers. The conveyor is a chain-type conveyor driven by an electric motor which delivers tires directly to workers loading the tyre balers.
The working area of the Inclined Tyre Baler Conveyor is 11 x 4 x 2.5 metres. When planning a new waste management system with us CAD site designs are offered to give you an accurate idea of how this new system will fit within your space or site. Our expert team will discuss your tyre waste needs to help you decide if the Inclined Tyre Baler Conveyor is the best solution for your site or business.

We at Gradeall International Ltd. are a world leading manufacturer of balers, compactors, tyre recycling machines and specialist bespoke recycling machinery. We have years of experience as industry leaders in recycling and waste management.
Our customers know we offer the highest level of excellence and expertise to their recycling systems. For more information on the work we do you can read a range of our case studies here.
For the initial first stage of loading the balers, the conveyor platform is retracted providing full access to load tyres at floor level. For each subsequent stage of bale loading, the sliding platform is pulled up against the baler. There is no need to bend down to pick up or place tyres in the baler.
The standard hopper is large enough to accommodate a truck full load of tyres, its modular design allows it to adapt to the specific loading method your organisation prefers. Tires can be loaded by hand from the truck into the hopper but in the case of larger trucks the side panel can be removed to load a truck load of types directly from the truck into the hopper. This option reduces strain on workers loading tyres as well as increasing the efficiency of loading the hopper and the tyre baler.
The conveyor itself is a chain-type conveyor driven by an electric motor to ensure slip-free drive. The chain drive ensures that the side-to-side belt roll-off that can happen to belt-driven conveyors does not occur, and the chain itself is much stronger and less prone to wear than a belt. A foot pedal operates the conveyor at a slow and safe speed and brings tyres at waist level to the operator. This removes the need for bending and lifting which may lead to back injury, improving safety and ease of use for your workers.
We at Gradeall pride ourselves on taking into account the common issues of waste management and solve them with efficient pieces of equipment and software. We are constantly improving our machinery to make it the best solution to any waste management problem. Here are a few problems faced during loading a tyre baler and how it is tackled by the Inverted Tyre Baler Conveyor:
Reduces operator strain
Chain conveyor for slip free operation
Sliding platform at baler deposit height
One full hopper load will produce more than 2 bales
Constant baling for two tyre balers
