Creating Rubber Powder. First phase: Used rubber tires ground into crumbs are converted into ultra-fine rubber powder, with no emissions.
- Freezing: The rubber crumbs are inserted into a proprietary freezer, and are semi-cryogenically frozen to -70° C. No chemical agents are used, thus keeping all the rubber qualities intact.
EcoTech Proprietary Freezing Technology
2.Milling: The rubber is then ground to an ultra-fine rubber powder; each granule is on average of 100–120 microns in size.
3.Filtering: During the filtering process the remaining textiles, which are problematic to any application, are separated and removed. This yields ultra fine rubber powder.
Manufacturing Active Rubber
1.Mixing: The mixing process within the Banbury rubber mixer, combined with EcoTech’s proprietary chemical formulation, enables the activation process that creates Active Rubber. 1.Extruding: The rubber leaves the mixer where it is pressed into sheets by a single screw extruder
2.Cooling & Packing: The sheets are cooled by fan and placed on a platform or pallet for packing.
