MKII Tyre Baler

Designed for maximum output of tyre bales, the MK2 can produce up to 6 PAS108 compliant tyre bales (between 400-500 tyres) per hour. The tyre volume is reduced by up to 80% drastically improving transport and storage efficiency. 

Baling makes it easier to transport end of life tyres onto further processing venues such as construction projects, civil engineering, shredding, pyrolysis, and energy recovery plants. Gradeall have supplied MK2 tyre balers across the globe.Ideal for tyre collectors, recycling centres, vehicle dismantlers, and tyre depots.

Product Description

Can this Tyre Baler Bale Truck Tyres?

Not normally. The truck tyre baler has been designed to deal with unprocessed truck tyres. However, when combined with a sidewall cutter it is possible to cut the sidewalls from tyres separating the sidewalls and treads. Then the tyre parts can be deposited into the MKII tyre baler in a specific pattern to produce a bale containing up to 26 tyres. Watch the video to see how to bale truck tyres in a MKII baler. A number of our customers now operate a sidewall cutter and MKII baler together and find that this combination is ideal for dealing with a wide range of road going tyres.

Tyre transport costs

The Gradeall MKII Tyre Baler is one of the most cost-effective Tyre Balers in Europe today in terms of capital cost. It also offers fantastic operational efficiency in that it can be operated by one person, and the baling wire cost per bale is minimal, the typical cost per bale with baling wire and electricity included is £2.60 (based on average UK electricity costs).

Gradeall can supply this machine on a purchase, purchase with lease finance or rental basis over a fixed period.

Remote Monitoring

Tyre Baler wireless connectivity

The MKII tyre baler features remote monitoring system, in essence, the same intelli-fill systemas portable and static compactors but tailored for a tyre baler.

  • Advanced warning, problems spotted before they become problems.
  • Gradeall can provide remote login for quick problem fixes.
  • Fine control of settings.
  • Built-in service counter; based on usage rather than a set date range.
  • Email alert of bale completion.

Requirements for remote monitoring;

This remote monitoring system uses a GSM SIM card which needs to have an active subscription subject to network operator costs.

Sufficient signal strength is needed for a reliable connection, this can vary depending on location and specific network operator.

Why the MK2 Tyre baler?

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. With the world turning to find sustainable environmental solutions, here’s how your journey can start with the MK2 Tyre Baler:

  1. The MK2 Tyre Baler allows for the compression of up to 110 tyres into one single bale, which significantly reduces the volume of the tyres and prepares them for smooth transport.
  2. The MK2 Tyre Baler produces from 4 to 6 bales per hour, with an estimate of 100 tyres per bale.
  3. With more tyres baled, the problem of transporting the used tyres to the processing or recycling facilities has become easier.
  4. The MK2 has been proven to help reduce tyre waste by up to 85%.
  5. An optional version of the MK2 can be adjusted to help convert and bale other materials from plastic to carpet and wool. This highly saves time and money that could be spent on processing these materials.

Why Bale Tyres?

The dangers of dumping used tyres aren’t limited to the fact tyres not being biodegradable, but there are more dangers including:

  • Fire Risk:

It’s easy for tyres to catch fire either on purpose or through natural causes as they are made from highly flammable materials. The process of putting out a fire in a tyre dump is both difficult and dangerous. The fire isn’t easy to put out, and when water is used for the extinguishing process, it carries toxic materials emitted from the tyres and transfers them to other surfaces, possibly underground water. This is not to mention the toxic smoke released into the air and its impact on global warming.

  • Increasing demand for recycled materials:

We can all feel the effects of waste on the environment with global warming heating up our planet. In this regard, countries around the world signed different treaties and companies have been urged to act sustainably and use recyclable materials when possible.

When tyres are baled and transported to the respective facilities, the recycling journey can begin. Tyres can be broken down using different methods to produce different recycled materials and used for varied purposes. From lining playgrounds, and sports grounds, used in producing everyday objects such as computer mouse pads, to being used in civil engineering projects such as road pavement and alignment. 

  • Freeing up used space:

Not all tyre dumping locations are legal, which means there are many occupied places that need to be freed up. These dump locations can be better used when tyres are instead baled to establish different projects that can be beneficial for society. 

The Gradeall MK2 Tyre Baler Features

  1. The MK2 Tyre Baler produces up to 5 bales per hour, with every bale containing between 90 and 110 tyres.
  2. The upper doors of the baler are closed manually to ensure the doors are securely locked in place.
  3. Two larger tyres are placed on top of each compaction cycle, allowing the tyres beneath to be securely compacted in each cycle.
  4. To allow for a safe and easy ejection from the baler, ejection chains are tied to the head of the baler that ejects the complete bale out when the head is lifted.

The operating mechanism and control panel of the MK2 Tyre Baler are easy to use, allowing one person to operate the tyre baler. Four operating MK2 Tyre Balers could bale up to 6 million tyres in a year.
